Predictive Product Development

Meet Jama Connect

As product requirements and regulations become more complex, companies are shifting strategies and modernizing their technologies. And Jama Software is helping our customers stay ahead of the curve.

That’s why we’ve upgraded our offerings and capabilities to help our customers consistently achieve their product launch targets.

The Jama Product Development Platform now consists of two solutions, Jama Connect and Jama Analyze™. Used separately, the two upgrade your product development process in incredible ways. Combined, they’ll transform your entire organization and enable Predictive Product Development.

We’ll be talking about Jama Analyze later in the week, but today we wanted to dive into what is new with our flagship product — now known as Jama Connect — that so many companies at the vanguard of their industries have been using to modernize their development process.

With recent updates, Jama Connect has never been more powerful for understanding your full product development lifecycle and proving you built the product you set out to build. Here are some highlights of its features and updates.

Validation, Verification and Test Management

Product quality matters, and Jama Connect lets you maintain traceability and confirm that each requirement, system and component spec has been tested. Now, Jama Connect has been radically improved to enhance how verification and validation data is handled within the application. By simplifying the visibility of how test results are connected to your requirements, you get better context and capability.

Review Center

Cancel lengthy approval meetings, as Review Center allows your teams to make better, faster decisions on approvals. New upgrades allow test plans to be sent to Review Center, making it easier to collaborate and negotiate approvals. Afterward, the results are sent to Test Center to review for feedback and sign-off. Review Center also now enables you to quickly identify what’s changed since you last viewed the content, and highlight and respond to targeted comments immediately.

 

With Jama Connect as your single source of truth for definition, verification and validation, you can benchmark and monitor team performance over time. You can also get insight into current progress to goal to drive execution. Plus, Jama Connect illuminates risk, and eases the path towards product compliance.​


Requirements Management

Jama Connect still lets you write requirements and create cross-team review groups for a more streamlined approval process. Teams also have the ability to prioritize requirements validation, problem statements, engineering responses, negotiation and more. With updates to how requirements are presented within Jama Connect, we’ve made it easier than ever to view and share content more easily.

Real-Time Collaboration

One of the key features of Jama Connect has been its ability to simplify communication around complex systems and processes, and we’ll continue to build on that. By allowing teams to get the answers and data they need to be more productive, milestone phases are tightened, risks are identified and opportunities to innovate are uncovered faster than ever.

End-to-End Traceability

Eliminate blind spots within your development process. Follow the connections between requirements, specifications and tests, including decision tracking, ensuring all teams understand the impact of product changes.

Built for Ecosystems

Not every development team uses the exact same solutions to build great products. Jama Connect allows teams the flexibility to use a variety of tools through our expanding group of reliable partners.

Jama Connect on its own is a game-changing solution for many product development companies. When used in conjunction with Jama Analytics — which we’ll be talking about more later this week — organizations will unlock a whole new level of developmental efficiency and success.
