Managing requirements is an incredibly important part of the software development process for everyone. Different teams approach the problem very differently – from very lightweight/informal ways to very formal and documented ways. The needs of your business and the culture of your organization will determine what’s right for you.
For years, we’ve worked with partners to provide great requirements management capabilities for Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Online. eDevTech provides a suite of tools that provide solutions spanning from relatively informal ways of managing requirements – simple Word documents, up to very formal ways – baselining, traceability matrices, requirements simulation, etc. Their tools integrate incredibly well with TFS and VS Online and can fit wonderfully into your development workflow – whatever your level of formality.
I’m thrilled to say that, together with eDevTech, we are now making SmartOffice4TFS and inteGREAT4TFS available to all Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN users.
