Visure for IBM DOORS Migration

With our new offering, customers can now move quickly and easily, save money, and be ready to cope with today’s and tomorrow’s challenges in Requirements Management.

Visure Solutions Inc., the market leader in Requirements Lifecycle Management, has announced the release of its Visure for IBM DOORS Migration. This solution allows a very fast, simple, and fully automated migration of complete IBM Rational DOORS project data, including traceability, attribute definitions, users, groups and requirements to its award-winning Requirements Definition and Management solution, Visure Requirements.

IBM is already preparing their customers since 2011 to move to their DOORS successor [1] , but with DOORS NG only offering limited capabilities compared to DOORS 9, not many DOORS users are migrating, especially as this requires to operate both systems in parallel, as well as running and maintaining the IBM Jazz platform too.

As demonstrated at the INCOSE Symposium 2013 in Philadelphia, PA, Visure for IBM DOORS Migration is the solution for current DOORS customers seeking to reduce their maintenance costs by up to 64%, while substantially enhancing their Requirements Management efficiency.

Visure Requirements capabilities exceed IBM Rational DOORS in many ways. Visure Solutions has already been offering a manual round-trip integration between DOORS and the Visure Requirements tool suite. Today, Visure for IBM DOORS Migration enables complete and automated migration of all data from DOORS to Visure Requirements. DOORS data can be migrated to Visure Requirements without any manual effort; in fact the migration automatically harmonizes meta-data, such as attributes and types across all modules, and recreates all information directly in Visure Requirements to allow instant project continuity with zero disruption.

The migration also includes baselines, so historical information is available in Visure Requirements with correct timestamps to provide the full audit trail for all requirements and links.

Visure will demonstrate the migration process using Visure for IBM DOORS Migration and highlight the benefits of its solution in a public Webcast on October 9th.

To ease the adoption process for long-time DOORS customers, Visure Requirements views can be configured so that all information is available in a very similar and familiar way. In addition to the basic Requirements Management capabilities that engineers will expect to use, they can also benefit from Visure Requirements advantages such as:

  •     Requirements reuse
  •     Product line and variants support
  •     Requirements traceability
  •     Requirements templates
  •     Requirements prioritization
  •     Risk analysis
  •     Requirements elicitation
  •     Requirements capture
  •     Requirement quality analysis,
  •     Built-in workflows
  •     Verification and acceptance tests
  •     Report generation
  •     Requirements version control
  •     Project management
  •     Integration with other tools

“DOORS clearly seems to have come to an end in its development cycle and customers know they will have to migrate to a DOORS’ successor or an alternative solution,” says Christian Christophoridis, Vice President Product Marketing of Visure Solutions. “With our new offering, customers can now move quickly and easily, save money, and be ready to cope with today’s and tomorrow’s challenges in Requirements Management.”

Visure Requirements belongs to a new generation of Requirements Engineering tools that focus on requirements themselves instead of requirements documents. Through this information-centric approach it streamlines the Requirements Management process across the complete development lifecycle, allowing for more effective collaboration between teams at various stages of development. It supports requirements capture, analysis, specification, validation, verification, management and reuse.

To provide development flexibility, Visure Requirements forms the process backbone, managing all requirements-related information in a way that mirrors how the information flows and interacts in product development. Any requirements-related information―whether requirements of different levels, test cases, use cases, etc.―can be configured, related and analyzed, based on process needs.

By supporting integration hubs like OpsHub Integration Manager or agosense.symphony, Visure Requirements can be integrated with almost any ALM solution available, including change management and process automations systems like JIRA, test management like HP ALM and requirements exchange formats like RIF/ReqIF. As an HP Gold Marketplace Partner, Visure is also offering a certified integration to HP Quality Center.
