“As people start engaging with Blueprint, they get excited to use it. They definitely see it as superior to our old document-based approach,” Jeff Hallett, Director, Global Process Engineering, Elekta.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 15, 2017
Blueprint Software, an innovator and global leader in accelerating and de-risking large, complex IT projects, announced today that Elekta, a leading global human care company pioneering significant innovations and clinical solutions for treating cancer and brain disorders, selected Blueprint as its enterprise platform to manage software requirements as it expands its Agile practices.
Elekta knew it needed to modernize its requirements practices by selecting a robust, enterprise scale requirements tool to:
- Help scale Agile practices by improving collaboration across globally distributed teams, enabling rapid iterations and feedback, and supporting knowledge sharing. Microsoft Word and email were not sufficient.
- Centralize requirements to enable their reuse and drive consistency, quality, and speed.
- Meet the needs of a distributed organization in a highly regulated industry by providing enterprise scale capabilities for traceability, electronic signature, and compliance management.
"We are very pleased to be supporting Elekta in the very important work that they do,” said Ruth Zive, Vice President of Marketing at Blueprint. "Elekta solutions can, quite literally, save lives, and we look forward to a strong partnership and long lasting relationship to that end."
Elekta chose Blueprint as its enterprise requirements management platform because of their robust capabilities for traceability, reuse, and electronic signature, as well as its user friendly and intuitive UX. Elekta is already using the entire spectrum of Blueprint’s capabilities, from requirements definition and traceability to collaboration, use cases, workflows, for both product and customer level requirements.
“As people start engaging with Blueprint, they get excited to use it. They definitely see it as superior to our old document-based approach,” said Jeff Hallett, Director, Global Process Engineering, Elekta.
Elekta also plans to analyze (and measure where appropriate) improvement of productivity, quality, and collaboration with Blueprint in place as its enterprise requirements management solution.
By retiring its manual spreadsheet and paper method and replacing it with Blueprint, Elekta will have a simpler, more maintainable electronic requirements management process. With a single shared requirements repository, teams can develop common product definitions and collaborate productively around a shared vision.
