"Poor CM software"

What do you like best?

It is effective in presenting a clear layout of the file system when checking in and out files.

What do you dislike?

This is the bane of my departments existence, almost as universally hated as Satan. At a review session concerning our department, the main issue preventing us from getting our job done was synergy. It is TERRIBLE at going backwards, is TERRIBLE at merging, and is extremely poor at building baselines. Additionally, I have been told it is extremely expensive. Go with a newer software like Git.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't use rational synergy

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

We are using it as a version control system and a configuration management. It does a good enough job to not destroy everything.

"No complaints so far"

What do you like best?

Synergy is very simple to navigate and submit assignments such as work tickets and software downloads.

What do you dislike?

I had used synergy for about about 2 years and my only complaint is that sometimes it freezes on me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very good system. Easy to use with large teams.

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

Synergy is used for sharing software zip files as tasks throughout the company. It’s beneficial because it's Simple for everyone to access.
