Parker’s vision is what has made Enfocus Requirements Suite™ the only business analysis tool of its kind featuring the combination of:
- RequirementCoach™ Portfolio Community, an online forum where people can interact with business analysis experts and download and share presentations, resources, and training materials.
- StakeholderPortal™, an interface that lets stakeholders contribute and collaborate in their own words, track their needs, and provide feedback to development teams and to each other.
- Powerful, intuitive automation, which provides users full visibility into projects, requirements traceability, and the ability to monitor activities and better control time, budget, and scope.
