Business Requirements Management
Capture requirements successfully – every time
While balancing time, cost and quality continues to plague IT organizations, IT executives would agree that ineffective requirements are part of the root cause of project failure. IT needs to work collaboratively with the business to elicit effective requirements and manage them throughout the application life cycle. By establishing effective business requirements IT can deliver more relevant applications that meet the business need on time and within budget.
Micro Focus Optimal Trace is Micro Focus’ business requirements definition and management solution, built to enable IT and the business to collaborate more effectively and improve IT project delivery outcomes. According to CIO magazine, ineffective requirements are the cause of over 70 percent of IT project failures. Micro Focus Optimal Trace addresses this problem with “structured requirements.” This approach captures software requirements from the perspective of the user, complete with visual storyboards and the ability to trace relationships throughout the project lifecycle to business needs. Using structured requirements, IT organizations ensure that they are accurately and completely capturing the right requirements, communicating them effectively and dramatically improving their ability to deliver on the expectations of the business.
