IBM Rational RequisitePro, a requirements management tool that teams can use to manage project requirements comprehensively in order to promote communication and collaboration among team members and reduce project risk. Requirements management is essential for improving your software development process. Rational RequisitePro uses a project database for managing requirements in views with sort and query capabilities. It also includes integration with Microsoft Word for creating and maintaining requirements documents that are linked to the database for real-time updates to requirements from within documents. The database and Word integration helps you organize and prioritize your requirements, trace relationships between them, and track changes that affect them. Traceability features visually indicate how changes affect the project, thereby helping to perform impact analysis and make informed decisions for scope management or resource allocation. Rational RequisitePro captures the change history for each requirement, thereby providing a paper audit of the evolution of project requirements.
