Telelogic (STO:TLOG) announced a new requirements definition and management solution that is optimized for the needs of software development projects. Called Telelogic DOORS(R) Fastrak(TM), the new Web-based solution provides requirements definition and management for collaborative development projects with short delivery timelines.
“Telelogic recognizes that good requirements definition and management are critical to the success of any development project,” said Ingemar Ljungdahl, Chief Technology Officer, Telelogic. “We have led the way in providing requirements-driven development solutions for the world’s most complex engineering projects. With DOORS Fastrak, we are now applying our expertise to meeting the requirements process needs of rapid software development projects.”
DOORS Fastrak provides a solution that:
- Promotes quick and easy adoption by development teams – simple Web-based forms, an ‘out-of-the-box’ automated workflow and step-by-step guidance provide a requirements solution that meets the dynamic needs of software development projects.
- Engages the customer in the requirements process – Web-based access and role-based views make it simple to involve stakeholders directly in the requirements capture and review process, and keeps them up-to-date on the progress and completion of their requirements.
- Delivers high value at low cost – DOORS Fastrak is available either as an installed application or as Software as a Service (SaaS). DOORS Fastrak doesn’t need additional client software – just a Web browser. The SaaS option lowers the cost of deployment and administration even further. Starting at just over $1 per user per day, DOORS Fastrak is a simple, low cost, effective way to improve the requirements process of fast-paced software development projects.
“Requirements management is a well understood and mature discipline in systems engineering organizations, and the same principles apply to more dynamic software development teams,” said Bola Rotibi, Principal Analyst at industry analysts Ovum. “However, shorter release cycles and more rapid development models require ‘just enough’ process support to balance the need for speed with the demand for quality.”
“For development projects to successfully meet the needs of their customers, it’s important that those stakeholders are included in the development process, regardless of the size or scope of the project,” said Teresa Jones, Senior Analyst at industry analysts Butler Group. “Collaborative requirements management solutions make it easier for stakeholders to directly submit and monitor their requirements. This improves developers’ overall ability to meet the needs of their customers.”
DOORS Fastrak is available now.
