A few examples of reports that you can gain by using R&D Reporter:

  • What changes have been made since a private stream was rebased to the recommended baseline?
  • What changes have been made to integration stream since the latest deliveries?
  • Find out whether a recent check-in has broken the build, and if so - which they are?
  • What changes have been made since the latest baseline was created?
  • What changes have been made between the current build and the predecessor one?
  • What is the difference between two streams?
  • What is the difference between recommended baselines of two streams, based on the same (foundation) baseline?
  • What activies have been made between two baselines?
  • You can track any change, and answer the questions of who made a change, what change was made, when the change was made, and why the change was made.
  • Activities delivered since the last baseline
  • Daily list of file and directories modified in ClearCase VOBs

Trial version includes full functionality limited to 21 days

Ziv Lachish, Software Quality Manager, HP Indigo

I found R&D Reporter to be a very useful utility with an easy-to-use interface!

Ed Sachs, Senior Software Configuration Manager, Allscripts

I'm continuosly impressed by the ability of ALMtoolbox to fill a gap between the core functioanlity provided by ClearCase and the needs of our customers.

Howard Bernstein, Product Manager - ClearCase and ClearQuest, IBM Rational

R&D Reporter helps us show the exact changes made between revisions and to comply with DO-178 regulation.

Philippe Wolkowicz, Software Engineer at Lahav IAI

This is great work and very useful. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Great job!

Sami Khan, Software Configuration Analyst, GMAC.

I found it very useful. It answers a real need partially fulfilled by ClearCase with the command cleardiffbl. It helps me to make a VDD (version description document). The UI is well designed, user friendly and simple.

Pierre-Luc Bouchard, CM Administrator, Canada.

A smart tool for saving time of the configuration management team by supplying team leaders and developers a planned and tested method to manage their own ClearCase streams and baselines.
