      • Tight integrations with Lifecycle management tools
  • Telelogic Synergy Suite Integrated Change & Configuration Management System Integrated Synergy Repository Telelogic Change Capture, manage and communicate requests for change. Telelogic Synergy Control, secure and distribute project artifacts.
  • Analysts perspective: A Recognized Industry Leader
    • "Telelogic Synergy achieves the highest rating in our ease of use category , while providing very advanced functionality. This makes Synergy an ideal choice for enterprise-wide deployment.“
      • Clive Burrows, Principal Analyst, Ovum.
    • “ Telelogic addresses CCM thoroughly with its Synergy and Change products, but the real emphasis that Butler Group believes the company now promotes, is the overall change process rather than just the tools. It is this process emphasis that customers will find valuable – although tools must be good and easy-to-use, if they do not have a wider framework to promote their use, they are unlikely to deliver their true value.”
    • - Butler Group analyst Teresa Jones
    • Technology Audit, Synergy 6.5 and Change 4.7, Butler Group, June 2007.
  • Telelogic Synergy Analyst Endorsements – Yphise
    • “ Synergy stands out in all four assessment dimensions
    • It provides the best coverage of our list of requirements. It ranks as the best software development management solution for the fourth consecutive time (2000, 2002, 2004 and 2007).
    • This demonstrates that Synergy is a comprehensive, mature and durable product.”
        • " Software Product Assessment – Software Development Management (SDM) ,” Yphise, July 2007
  • Synergy quick tour: CM Best Practice - Task-based CM
    • Task-based CM: a simple usage paradigm
      • Developers select a task in their To - Do list,
      • Check out/create & modify files
      • Complete the task
    • Task-based CM helps the developer
      • Avoids manual "check-ins" and similar annoying operations
      • Automates documentation
      • Automatic traceability: Change requests – Activities – Objects
      • Clear "To-do list" with priorities and navigation
      • Removes CM process overhead from developers daily activities
  • Synergy quick tour - The Developer’s Perspective Task To-Do List Change Request Synergy Repository Tasks Identify Task Check-out File(s) Make Changes Build & Test Check-in File(s) Complete Task Files/ Dir
