Compuware’s Optimal Trace enables project teams to capture, view and manage requirements.
With its collaboration features, Optimal Trace enables CIOs and senior managers to standardize requirements management across all projects within the organization. It also allows project managers to align the requirements of various stakeholders and to facilitate collaboration across multiple teams locally or remotely. As a business analyst, you can easily capture business and user requirements using Optimal Trace and present the same for implementation by the information technology team. The software development team can then translate functional and non-functional requirements into tangible technical solutions.
A project will not be complete without the involvement of the quality management team. With Optimal trace, QA analysts and testers can review requirements early in the project life cycle even prior to user sign-off. After the requirements have been baselined, the quality management team can then finalize their test plans and test cases.
