AIM Bug/Defect Expert
I am currently in the process of purchasing a bug tracking software for our QA/Development departments. The product which I have evaluated and am most satisfied with is AIM's Bug/Defect Expert. We have been going through a jumpstart program to evaluate. So far so good...
Now to my questions...
1) Is there any advantage to outright purchasing the software and housing the database in-house, as opposed to having AIM host this for us? any disadvantages? I would like to leverage the data collected, but I think in order to do this most effectively, it would be wise to purchase it.
2) Is there anyone out there who has had experience with Bug/Defect Expert from AIM? How would you evaluate it? Any thing I should look for in terms of the software's limitations? Any praises?
Your responses are greatly appreciated!
