While you talk about the tools to use for software development - I am assuming you have the Software Development process nailed down. As the process would drive the tools.
Having said that, the choices you have listed are great as I have had my teams use similar tools for SDLC.
Requirements management - Requisite Pro
Modeling - Rational Rose
Version/Source Control - Perforce/ClearCase (Perforce is a better choice, ClearCase is good for small deployments)
Test Design and Management - Mercury Test Director
Issue/Defect Management - ClearQuest
Scripting/Automation - QTP
Load Test - LoadRunner
If your development is done using ColdFusion Studio as the editor - you can integrate the Perforce with Studio. Besides the other tools have a way to integrate with each other in order to have clear traceability from requirements to code to test cases/sets to results. This will ensure your development effort delivers what the customer had originally requested.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email.
