The Limitations, Drawbacks, and Risks of Using Legacy Requirements Management Tools
Current market dynamics include disruptors that put innovation at the heart of your product development process. Organizations must be able to navigate these disruptions to remain competitive and sustain business growth.
Why organizations move away from legacy tools, the benefits of making the switch, and how to successfully migrate.
Requirements management (RM) tools started to evolve more than 25 years ago when it became clear that document-based tools such as Microsoft Office did not offer capabilities able to manage and analyze requirements traceability. Early requirements tools included QSS DOORS® (now IBM), Rational Requisite Pro (end of life), Borland Calibre RM (now Microfocus), and a couple of others. Legacy requirements solutions may have handled managing requirements in the past but are failing to keep pace over time due to increasing engineering complexity and the need for modern software to be far easier to use.
We will explore topics relevant to legacy requirements management tools, why organizations elect to move away from them, what benefits are realized after making the switch, and how to successfully migrate. We’ll also touch on how to navigate the data migration path from a legacy system to a new platform, and how innovation is realized in product development lifecycles with a modern requirements management solution.
In our whitepaper, The Limitations, Drawbacks, and Risks of Using Legacy Requirements Management Tools, we’ll evaluate legacy RM solutions like IBM® DOORS®, and cover:
- Key reasons why organizations are replacing legacy RM solutions
- Digital transformation requires a new approach
- How compliance is adversely impacted using legacy requirements management solutions
- Options to support migration and enable replacement of legacy solutions
- How to deploy a co-exist strategy with IBM DOORS and connect to the supply chain using ReqIF for Jama Connect®
