Have a look at the Ovum report "Summary of the configuration management
For almost all evaluation criteria ClearCase is at or close to the
top and VSS is at or close to the bottom.
Another relevant document is the "Software Configuration Management (SCM)
Tool Evaluation" from Micro Systems, Inc.
describes the limitations of VSS and presents an evaluation of several
alternatives. ClearCase was the best alternative according to the
VSS is a very limited tool. I've even seen claims that some Microsoft
projects use other tools (particularly Perforce) instead of it. It is
not surprising that ClearCase does better in the marketplace.
It's less clear why ClearCase does better than cheaper tools like
Perforce, BitKeeper, and AccuRev that seem to have significant
advantages over it in some areas. The one obvious major advantage of
ClearCase over the competition is dynamic views. Specific benefits
include rapid workspace creation, easy workspace sharing, simplified
build configurations through automatic tracking of build dependencies
(clearmake/omake), improved build performance through parallellization
and automatic sharing of build products, and automatic generation of
bills of materials for builds.
