Accelerating The Application Lifecycle
DEPLOY DEFINE DESIGN TEST DEVELOP CHANGE MANAGEMENT Application Lifecycle Management #1 in Java Meta, Giga, Gartner #1 Independent Path to.NET 3 million developers Second only to MSFT Leader in software patents Second only to IBM No platform agenda Modern, integrated tools supporting agile development CaliberRM Together ® Optimizeit Suite JBuilder ® C++Builder ® C#Builder ® Borland Enterprise Server StarTeam ®
CaliberRM is… CaliberRM is… …a collaborative, internet-enabled requirements management tool that allows project teams to fully define, manage, and communicate changing requirements Easy to use, intuitive interface Easy to use, intuitive interface Internet-based, multi-user environment Internet-based, multi-user environment Provides full lifecycle, LiveLink TM traceability Provides full lifecycle, LiveLink TM traceability What is CaliberRM?
CaliberRM Web-Centric Architecture CaliberServer CaliberClients WebServer Documents,Graphics Models,Prototypes Source Code, Documentation Test Cases, Test Scripts CaliberRM Document Factory CaliberRM Professional DataMart
Manage Requirements, Not Documents Hierarchical project tree acts as a graphical Table of Contents for easy reference Secure login ID allows customized interface and preferences by user Familiar Explorer-style Tree &Tab interface makes it easy for new users to learn Each requirement is a named, numbered object in the database…not just a blob of text embedded in a document.
Customizable Project Format Custom requirement types are reusable objects that can be shared across projects Custom attributes can be defined to extend the requirement definition Custom tabs provide personalized views into the requirements data
Customize Without Programming All project customization is accomplished with graphical wizards and dialogs. No programming is experience necessary!
Requirement Grid View Customizable grid view provides spreadsheet look and feel Grid columns can be selected, removed, reordered, and sorted Custom filters can be defined to select only those requirements that meet a certain criteria Personalized format can be saved as a named object and reused
True Multi-User Environment As changes are made, CaliberRM automatically locks and unlocks requirements so that no conflicts can occur Automatic requirement versioning, including the ability to view any version at any time Baseline feature provides project-level versioning Multiple users can be reading and/or updating multiple requirements at one time
Automated Audit History Comprehensive audit history records all changes to all requirements Audit detail shows the changes made at the property level, including before and after images Change notification can be sent via to interested parties
Side-By-Side Comparison Compare requirement versions at the project level or the requirement level
On-line Collaboration Online discussion allows virtual meetings to be held electronically with the results recorded along with the requirement definition Discussions are often used to automate review and approval cycles, dramatically reducing the average elapsed time CaliberRM tracks which users have seen which discussions
Patented LiveLink Traceability Traceability records dependencies between requirements or from requirements to other tools Parent and child trace windows depict the direction of the trace Information in the trace window is retrieved in real-time from the target technology No import or exports necessary!
Full Life-Cycle Impact Analysis The Traceability Diagram provides a graphical view of requirement dependencies Can be used to analyze the impact of a requested or pending change The Traceability Matrix provides a row-column view of the relationships and depicts both direct and derived dependencies
Template-Based Reporting CaliberRM Document Factory provides customized reporting in virtually any output format. You can define templates to match your existing documentation standards and generate reports on request or as part of an automatic scheduled process.
Decision Support Analysis The CaliberRM DataMart provides graphical analysis and reporting, including drill-down capability and ad-hoc report customization
