Transcript of "Successfully manage customer expectations with requirement management solutions"

  1. 1. Successfully Manage Customer Expectations with Requirement Management SolutionsThe world of requirements management has developed significantly and has increasingly become one ofthe foundation stone of successful software projects. While requirements will have interdependencies,a well written and implemented Requirements always have a great value. Requirements managementhas a critical effect on an organizations development costs and software quality. A recent survey ofEuropean software organizations identified that more than 40% perceived that they had major problemsin managing customer requirements, and more than 50% perceived that they had major problems in thearea of requirements specification.Which is why requirements management is critical for managingexisting consumer expectations. There needs to be a process that takes requirements from varioussources, determines if they should be added to the backlog, and disposes of them properly.A good requirements management solution allows an organization to avoid many design mistakes andto reduce failures during the development process. The cost of fixing errors or changing functionalityincreases exponentially with the development phases. In software development life cycle studies haveindicated that the repair cost of an error is about 10 times higher during the tests as during therequirements management. It is therefore important to ensure that there is no error undiscovered. Thefact of the matter is that the main error causes come from bad or wrong requirements. Therefore animproved requirements management can lead subsequently to a reduction in the product failures anddevelopment cost of the product.The global overall quality of the product increases also with an efficient requirements managementsolution . With a good solution, a developer can control all the properties of the product and achievecompliance with standards and regulations. With a large number of requirements collected from avariety of sources, it can become difficult to cope with the deterring job of determining therequirements for a set of organizational objectives.As requirements management is one of the most important part of a product development, it needs tobe done with success, so that it can allow the development of software quicker and at lower cost. Andwhile requirements management is a quite difficult task, IT projects should try to improve it as much aspossible. Only an efficient requirements management allows to work successfully on complex projects.Advanced requirements management tools offers a rich and configurable, global platform forencapsulating a set of requirements, collaborating on their development and tracing implementation.Enterprises therefore require a solo web-based ALM solutions that can amply cover all the featuresnecessary for all asynchronous collaboration. `Related Links - Agile Methodology & Integrated ALM
