Requirements Collaboration

Today many people are involved in capturing, analyzing and maintaining the requirements of a certain project. File-based approaches like MS Word documents or MS Excel spreadsheets do not allow working on the requirements in parallel.

Professional requirements management solutions support collaboration on requirements by increasing granularity: each single requirement can be accessed independently from the others.

In many cases a particular user – having a certain task – does not need the whole document. Instead, he may only need a small subset of the information in order to fulfil his task. Why spending hours for finding the relevant information from within a huge Word document?

Requirements management solutions are capable to define role-based views allowing to work on the relevant requirements far more efficiently.
Providing web-based access to the actual requirements data helps communicating latest changes to the requirements to the whole organization.
