Product is user friendly, needs ability to put additional controls in place to ensure data integrity and to support larger organizational implementations including ability to support financial capitalization.
Go cloud and integrate with other systems.
Usability for teams.
Lack of controls to prevent data integrity loss; i.e. ability to delete stories with time booked to them. Additional security functionality needed within projects.
Better integration between timesheets and the story maintenance.
Go cloud. Not all functionality will move to on-premise and those that do are behind.

The product offers very good capabilities in Application Lifecycle Management space based on agile principles. It helped us with organizing product feature set for software development and releases using backlog management features and kanban boards. The tool provides for a high level of flexibility and it is possible to customize almost every page using custom views. The iteration view is one that we leverage a lot for our sprint meetings, release planning meetings and backlog grooming and prioritization sessions.
Understand appetite within your organization for agile principles and come up with a process that will support the tool's adoption and leverage so benefits can truly be realized end to end.
Backlog chart features, Iteration Dashboard are great tools to get a snapshot view about development status of sprints
Complexity that comes with too much flexibility in certain modules of the application.
Flexibility has come with a cost and the configurability in the system should be balanced with usability. Some pages within the application are extremely busy and can take some time to get used to.
Understand the integration capabilities of ALM tools such that we are able to leverage the data coming out of this tool back to portfolio management databases to provide executive dashboard reporting features.

The early stages of this product were not as controlled as one would have hoped for. Changes still reflect their major purchase organizations.
The database structure limits the responsiveness of custom field utilization. Be careful to work with the vendor if you have large amounts of data pulled in from other systems.
Flexible and easy to learn.
Reporting levels - we have 23 scrum teams all working together with multiple cross team epics, the interface between the teams and the roadmapping does not work as smooth as I would have hoped (cross team).
Their internal key structures need to be more carefully looked at to address ITIL interfaces with tools like Remedy.
Spent more time with the vendor in Boulder during their initial design and development of their product.
