RRDI and Insight - differences

Luca Martinucci (1.0k294112) | asked Mar 26 '14, 10:59 a.m.
What are the main differences between RRDI and Insight?
I mean, which Insight features are not available in RRDI?
According to the CLM infocenter, Insight can report on more products than RRDI, it uses Data Manager ETLs instead of Java ETLs and is able to extract data from multiple Jazz servers and to bypass the data warehouse to report live from a variety of data sources.
Apart from that, are there any other differences?
My Jazz platform version is 4.0.5

 Hi Luca,

The main differences are: 
1. Loading of data - RRDI uses the CLM (aka Java) ETLs which can not be customized whereas Insight uses ETLs which can be customized.  
2. Reporting - With RRDI, you can report on projects/applications associated with a single JTS (Jazz Team Server).  With Insight, you can report across many data sources, such as projects with multiple JTSs, integrations such as DOORS, ReqPro, ClearQuest, or other tools.  
3. Insight licenses must be purchased but RRDI does not. You integrate it with your CLM environment. 

Both have the Cognos report design tools and business intelligence features

There are other technology differences but these are the high-level ones to the end user.

Another clear answer.

Unluckily, there can be only one "accepted answer"... :)
