Perforce is great, when you master it. It becomes a very powerful and useful tool once you know how to use it.

Pros

Perforce is the perfect software if you want to work with a team remotely on the same project. In video game development, you could have 500 people working on the same game at the same time. Perforce allows everyone to work on specific things within the project from their own computers.

Cons

Perforce's user interface is very complicated to understand and to master. Many people that I know, including me, make a lot of mistakes after and there is not enough information online to figure it out.

We use Helix Core to store everything related to software - source code, artifacts, design documents, tests, test results, etc. It handles everything we throw at it with ease. In over 15 years of using Helix Core, we have not had any issues with data integrity, speed or storage.

Pros

The software is hosted by our company, is easy to manage, easy to maintain and does it's job. The primary focus for the tool is source control. While Helix Core allows for integration with other applications, it has remained true to being first and foremost a world-class source control management tool.

Cons

Remote depots were slow and confusing, though that has seen much improvement in the past few years. Setting up the remote depots was not difficult in the final analysis, but getting our remote contractors to manage Helix was problematic. We would use remote depots again if the need arose, but internet speed increases, remote clients can just VPN into our network.

Alternatives Considered

Git

Reasons for Switching to Helix Core

Simplicity and check-in control. We migrated from VSS to Helix with no issues. A decade later, we tried TFS and were shocked by the complexity. We have a small team using source control (about 20) and do not have the resources for a full time SCM admin. Git was not difficult, but Helix was faster with the benefit of being network hosted.

Ease of use.

Ease of use.

Pros

All files are arranged neatly and in order for easier access. I find the information on all files to be up to date and time stamped according to when they were last edited.

Cons

I had to manually set up my own workspace folder. Again once this was set up correctly the features seen in the depot folder are available in my workspace.

i've been using this product for almost 20 years, and i'm not planning to change any time soon. it does what i want. it's pretty easy to use. it can do just about anything you need it to do. the company stands behind their product, and they support it very well. what more needs to be said.

Pros

i have been using this product (both as Helix and Perforce) since 2000, and it's wonderful. it has just about every feature you could want. on those rare occasions when i had to contact their support department, i got answers immediately, and whatever the problem was, it was resolved very quickly. over the years, there was only one thing i wanted that the software couldn't do, but i easily created a workaround that did exactly what i needed.

Cons

several years ago there was a feature called "windows explorer integration". that feature has gone away in the more recent versions, which is too bad, as it was quite useful. there are other ways to do the same thing, but it was a nice feature to have around.
