When IT undertakes a development project, it signs-figuratively or literally-a contract with the business. The contract spells out what requirements will be fulfilled and when they will be delivered. Requirements management-as part of a comprehensive software quality management system-helps IT quantify the risks associated with each requirement and make informed decisions about resource allocation and release.
Read this white paper to learn a structured way to manage requirements, and how risk-based requirements and quality management are inseparable from the larger process of managing the planning, test and release of a software system. Discover three factors that enable requirements and quality management:
Complete and verifiable requirements
Traceability of requirements across the application lifecycle
Evaluation of a requirement's business value and risk factors
