Compare the best Application Requirements Management vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product (and the bar length) is based on a weighted aggregate ranking.
For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows:
The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points.
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in the category.
For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to
the product with the most reviews then the product's score and bar length for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14.
In the final section, Average Rating, there are 30 points available to each product
independent of the other products.
Reviews and ratings that are more than 24 months old, as well as those by resellers, are excluded from the rankings.
In application development, a requirement is a specific description of a capability – something to which the app must conform. For example, if an application needs to be able accept the input of a social security number, then that input functionality will be a requirement of the app. Big application development projects can easily have thousands of requirements, necessitating the use of Application Requirements Management Software. Requirements management software helps document, prioritize and analyze requirements. It also may help bring stakeholders together to agree on requirements and then track their completion. Requirements management is a continuous process
Requirements management can be messy, given the often conflicting needs of business, IT and developer stakeholders. As a result, IT Central Station members who weigh in on requirements management software value usability for end users and flexibility for admins. The process is already complicated. The software shouldn’t be. Users want application requirements management solutions that are easy and fast to configure, with powerful workflows and schemes.
IT Central Station members recommend application requirements management tools that help with the traceability of requirements. It’s essential to know how requirements have changed over time – and who changed them. In some cases, users recommend having the ability to restrict change-making privileges or institute requirements change request (RCR) processes through the tool. On the other end, the best tools offer an impact analysis for new requirements. That way, if someone suggests a new requirement, the stakeholders can see how that might affect other requirements.
For big projects, the tool has to be able to handle large-scale requirements analyses. Larger organizations which may have multiple development stacks generally need requirements management platforms that are cross-methodology. This enables requirements to flow easily into Scrum, Kanban and so forth. Developers want to be able to use their preferred tools to go along with requirements management solutions.
