What do you like best?

Helix core/ Perforce/ P4V is a GUI based VCS which itself is very unique and easy to use once have a good understanding of it.

It is very easy to install, configure and use.

A very user friendly interface with realtime comparison of the scripts you have in your local workspace and on cloud/ depot.

Gives a detailed dashboard where you can see all the changes that have been submitted recently and a version comparison lets you know if your script is the latest or you need to pull a latest version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Initially understanding this software is a bit confusing, especially for people who has worked on GIT or BitBucket.

It doesn't have a bash window where you can send commands to upload your scripts, instead you go through the directory, create a pending checklist, put your files there and then submit.

Not used in most of indian IT companies so experience doesn't count, most organization always prefer GIT or BitBucket over helix.

Branching concept is almost negated, you get your scripts reviewed and push directly to the Depot.

No integration with pycharm or other IDEs available in market so you either have a cloud copy i.e. read only or a local copy of script in your hand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take tutorials before using it, as this VCS is a bit confusing initially.

Don't ever try to delete anything untill you know how deletion on Helix work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helix core makes it very easy to submit scripts to cloud (VCS), one can easily review their script version and pull a latest revision. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Consistent across all business units and developers. It keeps improving in ease of use and performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is expensive, and not particularly easy to work with. It does not tie in well to our BOM system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Now comes with Git compatibility, so one interface is needed. It will handle multiple nested projects well, and is used for all of our documentation needs. It does need a "champion" or administrator willing to put in the time to learn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coordinating VCS between 50 software developers, and sharing updates to libraries. The learning curve is small for simple things like checkin and checkout, but branch and merge have to be done carefully. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It integrates fairly well with MadCap Flare, allowing us to keep a version history of documents that we create so we can roll back if necessary. It is easy to use once you know the layout, and the check-in/check-out system is great for version control.

I also like that the desktop client lets you see your full file directory and open files from there in different programs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

By default, you are allowed to check out and make changes to a file that someone else has checked out. If you don't know this and don't have exclusive checkout enabled, it's possible to lose changes that you make Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We primarly use Perforce for version control and history. We need to make sure that multiple people have access to the same files, but all changes are tracked and saved and no one loses their changes because two people were editing a file at the same time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

User friendly graphical tools like the Revision Graph and file history graphs.

Securely manageable single repository as well as large repositories that delivers files quickly to distributed teams.

Efficient and effect support.

I think using the graphical interface to perforce (p4v) is a more effective way to work with perforce for most users. It makes it much easier to manage multiple workspaces, change lists, branch mappings, merging and most other functions.

Time lapse tool is just fantastic

I can not live without side-by-side diff tool at a mouse click

Command line tools are powerful but needs little more experience, that comes with time.

Applying the scripts is making daily work easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

nitial learning is slightly rough when you come from GIT background, as you pick it up, it becomes fun. I watched online videos from basic to advanced level and now I am comfortable using it. Everyday there is something I learn from my coworkers.

Setting up Helix server is rigorous at the first go, but if you it once, then next time it is straight forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

User-friendly

scalable

easily manageable

Good for large distributed teams

Merging and branching a piece of cake

File history easy to access Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

fast source code access in agile environments where each branch exists for short time period as we prefer to branch out, implement the functionality and then merge it back to main. We prefer short lived branches and frequent mergers than long waited mergers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There are excellent graphical tools like the Revision Graph and the Merge Tool included.

The possibility to automate and access by scripts using command line and various API's is very useful.

There is very good support and knowledge base available.

The Swarm add-on to Perfore is exellent for collaboration and reviews but it actually should be even more tightly integrated as part of the basic product rater than an add-on.

Perforce is very good at handling large files and large repos efficiently.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The concept of a workspace and checking out files is non-intuitive and confusing to new users who are used to Git.

The convienient way of doing Rollback/Backout is good but it is very problematic when it comes to integration records (merges).

Server administration and setup gets a bit complicated when you need more advanced features like replication, broker, SSL-support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You need to take the time to understand the concepts and the features as traditional Perforce differs from Git. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Graph and History give a very interesting visual information about source changes.

Customisation via scripts at submit or via P4Broker make the tool very flexible.

Merge tool is good visually and it works well to integrate changes from multiple branches, it is very functional.

Integration with Visual Studio IDE, SlickEdit, and other programming IDE is good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Labels are too easy to change, it cannot be used to identify official release for us.

The fact that directory are not a controlled object in Helix (at least when not using Streams) force us to create dummy files to introduce file architecture for a project.

It would also be good support directory link, like Linux system (this is maybe possible with Workspace views but it was not that easy or even not functionning for our projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very interesting tool for multiple OS platforms. Good visual interface and command-line interface (plus API's to Python, C/C++). This tool can be extended quite easily to enforce our processes within the whole developpement teams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Good collaboration among team members and track all changes to our code.

Il also allows us to perform efficient code reviews by shelving files with changes, without disturbing other developpers working in our branch.

Reconciling changes made locally during customer site-support is very good to keep all changes performed away from the office and submitting the changes once returning from these interventions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

My favorite aspect is the ability to interact with 3rd party software or even with our own in-house-built applications. Additionally, the ability to use it at my own home-owned server to test various aspects is just fun to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there are a few small things that annoy me about the product, but they are so easily worked around that I can't even remember what they are. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Out of the box, it's incredibly easy to use. It integrates well with a lot of other products that you may not even know exist, and it's easy to use for everyone involved, from the admin to the end-user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to create our own way to deploy fixes to customer sites by using changelists. We can create release notes from the changelist descriptions (with filters to determine what is only meant to be seen by customers), and it's been an easy process to accomplish this.

What do you like best?

1. You can use Helix VCS as is for keeping version control of software. You can also use the Helix VCS server by installing a middle-ware, which gives you the capability of git command line to access the repository.

2. We also used the "Forwarding Replica Servers" for distributed sites. If you use ClearCase Multi-sites, you will realize that the designed from Helix VCS is maintenance free. You only need to setup it up once and you're done. As for ClearCase Multi-sites, you are required to learn how to use the ClearCase Mastership.

3. The final thing I want to mention is the support from Helix VCS support team is second to none. Making a great product and the support team is paramount in a "Mission Critical Application" in the software industry. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is a learning a learning curve on how to manage git server using Helix CVS.

Once you learn how it operates, it works as advertised. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Yes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Helix ecosystem of products (server and clients) is mature and stable and because of its paradigm of not tracking local file edits it is fast. The GUI clients make it easy for a wide variety of users (in our case, engineers, artists, game designers and sound designers) to understand source control.

The APIs and triggers on submits allow sophisticated tools to be built to streamline the development process.

The 24/7 response team always quickly answers queries.

The Helix Swarm tool is great for code reviews.

The free 20 user option allows you to try it out though it does take some effort to set the server up well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My main issue with Helix as that the clients are not updated very often and a number of issues with the user interface have remained unaddressed for years. Also the MacOS client is much less stable than the Windows client.

In our particular use case where we use Unity the integration between Perforce and Unity is still in need of further work though it is useable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are building graphically rich video games which requires a team of many disciplines with differing levels of technical expertise and for the vast majority of users Helix's user interface does make it easy to work with source control.

Game development also involves the creation and management of a lot of digital assets and Helix's storage scheme does store them efficiently and deliver new changes to a distributed team quickly.

Game development is increasingly about building and maintaining a great live service with frequent updates to the game and Helix helps support this by allowing updates to be developed in different streams with different release dates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Perforce is feature full and allows us to do pretty much what we want to do. It helps with our productivity and to manage the data of our large scale productions.

I like the UI tool (P4V) but also a the command line tool option which we use extensively in our continuous integration system.

The new Helix4Git is also a new and interesting feature within Helix Core.

Easy to administer user and group rights. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is a little bit of a learning curve when new people join our teams and they do not have Perforce knowledge. It is somewhat different from other version control systems like Git.

Not worth it if you have a smaller team with smaller projects, something like GitLab would be more suitable.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There are three things that I especially like

- the revision graph view is excellent, and very nice to get an overview.

- p4merge visual layout

- The fact that there is no shadow folder, like in subversion or git Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The way workspace view is setup. It is very often the biggest obstacle when introducing new users.

Also, it is very annoying that there is no easy way to download something from perforce, e.g. with a oneliner. If I have the p4 commandline installed,, and credentials, I think you should be able to download something, just to current directly, e.g. like git clone and them rm .git Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

P4V made life easy with visual version control.

Added Swarm review improved our code quality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some times it asks for P4V password while doing some operations. But there is no way to authenticate password. Only way is to change password.

Swarm is good, for big teams there are high chances same file modified by other people same time.

After Swarm review approved and if we merge others changes it asks for review again. This blocks our check-in for review again delays our development time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Generally, I like that Helix operates well at large scales; I have to support almost 1000 users, and the performance problems are much smaller than they could be. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have major issues with the integration functionality, two specific problems in particular. For one thing, the fact that Helix is smart enough to recognize when files have been moved, but by default chooses not to use that power in integration, seems fatally flawed. Second, it is bizarre to me that the only way to undo an integration is to delete metadata; Helix provides both "rollback" and "backout" capabilities, but none of those touch the integration history, which inevitably leads to the situation where a developer wants to back out changes and then re-integrate from trunk, but is forced to perform an elaborate hopscotch routine of integrations, backouts, and re-backouts to do so.

Perforce is a solid VCS. Its centralized nature makes it faster and more scalable than git or mercurial, but its merge tracking is far better than Subversion's. It's very reliable too. It also comes with a decent built-in code review tool, Swarm. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

p4d is proprietary software, with all the attendant problems. It's needlessly difficult to install, because Perforce doesn't understand how the OSS community distributes software. Worst of all, after many years Perforce dropped support for our operating system, FreeBSD. They even accept payment for our license renewal without telling us that they were abandoning it. Now we're in a bind. We can't easily migrate away from Perforce because it stores merge tracking information in a way that is incompatible with other VCS tools. Worst of all, we have good reason to believe that newer versions of p4d aren't using any APIs unavailable on FreeBSD. So if we had source access, we could simply recompile it. But that sadly isn't an option with proprietary software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Perforce (Helix) is one of the best source control providers for medium to large projects and companies, especially those who need tight security. Their product suite has expanded to cover other needs like code inspections and git services which make it a more complete solution.. Many top tier companies rely on it, The ability to handle very large files is a must for us. They offer a free tier for up to 5 users which is a great way to get started. Every time i have dealt with support they have been fast, efficient and often local. They are not afraid to reinvent themselves which in this market with competitors such as git and microsoft team services is a must. They also offer service licences which is good to not have to use admin accounts for core services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While they offer the main perforce server on windows, other services must be deployed to Linux machines such as gitfusion. Setting up some of these services require a lot of experience and I had to have a few support calls (which were some of the best I've had and local to my country Australia) to get going.

What do you like best?

Helix is a state of the art tool which allows a lot of flexibility and is very fast. Many of the recent releases put out by Perforce Software, the maker of Helix, have given it similar capabilities to Git: distributed VCS aspects, the ability of using a Git client through Git Fusion, or the ability to connect it to GitLab, a solution similar to GitHub or BitBucket.

The level of support offered with a Helix license is unparalleled. Bugs are fixed in a timely fashion and each major release brings about many exciting new features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The initial learning curve is a tiny bit steeper than some of the other version control solutions. The concept of workspaces takes a little effort to fully understand, but it is workspaces which also make Helix more flexible than some of the other solutions out there.
