The Top Alternative to IBM Rational CLM - Inflectra

The Top Alternative to
IBM Rational CLM

Rational CLM is Heavy

IBM's application lifecycle management (ALM) suite is a collection of products known as IBM Rational collaborative lifecycle management (CLM). IBM Rational CLM covers requirements management, quality management, change and configuration management, project planning and tracking all on one platform.

Many Legacy Tools

Many of the features you need to fully use the CLM suite rely on legacy Rational tools that you have to integrate into the IBM Jazz platform. For example, there are many different overlapping requirement tools you can integrate such as DOORS, DOORS Next Generation, Requisite Pro and Requirements Composer.

Customers report that the CLM suite is comprehensive, but suffers from being complicated to setup and administer, with an outdated user interface that can be slow at times. In addition, CLM does not have integrations with many modern tools such as Git and Jenkins.
