Hello,

To decide which is "better" you need to define which features/functions are important to the way your organization wants manage resources, then decide which product best suits your requirement.

We need a tool which handles version of software well and is easy to check-in/check-out... also which handles DB2 binds automatically.

Hello,

As i mentioned, you need to mke a list of your requirements and then compare how well each of the products meets your requirements. From that coparison, you can decide which product is better for your organization.

No one here can tell you which is better for your system because we know nothing about your environment.

Some here may post that they like one product or another (and maybe even why), but that has nothing to do with your requirement.

Just a question - In your organisation or at your site who decides which version control can be installed? Do you have full control on this?
If I give my choice will you be able to install the SCM tool in your site?

Well actually our client gives his final verdict on the SCM tool but we can make a proposal regarding the same.

I heard a CA oldtimer tell me ENDEVOR has sold 4000 copies worldwide. Anybody know the figures for CHANGEMAN. I am an ENDEVOR Administrator, but have also used CHANGEMAN as a user only.

Many of the features of CHANGEMAN look very like ENDEVOR. As ENDEVOR is the older product, some might say imitation is the sincerest compliment.
