IBM DOORS makes Requirements Accessible
Collaboration and communication remain one of the key elements of an agile development strategy. IBM DOORS ensures teams remain informed of changes to the requirements via simple or entirely customizable workflows. Teams associate design items directly with the requirements using relationships, making accurate impact assessments possible and complete compliance enforceable.
Developers, testers, analysts, or any other stakeholder can link requirements directly to the design items, records, artifacts, or even other requirements. Structuring a project in this way guarantees teams have confidence in the code changes, complete testing, and quality assurance checks, achieve corporate governance compliance and release new features more frequently.
Requirements are essentially technical specifications, therefore IBM DOORS provides:
- Collaboration on documents, sections of documents, or individual attributes.
- Editing, analysis, and reporting capabilities via a desktop client.
- Support for text, tables, graphics, as well as content delivered in the Requirements Interchange Format.
- Hierarchy based structures of requirements, allowing multiple relationships and configurable views for easy navigation.
