Mindjet Requirements Manager

I downloaded the trial for Mindjet MindManager last month and was impressed with their level of Office integration. Over the weekend I received mail about a project (Mindjet Requirements Manager) that integrates MindManager with Team System, specifically, Team Foundation Server. Be sure to read the “How This Was Built” section. Very cool.

Use MindManager to create software requirements documents and turn those requirements into work items on Microsoft Visual Studio Team System. The requirements map then becomes a bi-directional link to the work items.

  5. I’ve been extremely impressed with MindJet’s MindManager, and have been using it for a while now.  For organizing your thoughts, tasks, plans, etc… – it is a tremendous time saver.  They’ve made it unbelieveably easy to categorize thoughts, keeping your fingers on the keys, and rarely having to use the mouse!  if you do have to (for moving items to groups or prioritizing your thoughts) – the user experience is quick, simple, and easy.   Worth every penny!

    I’m looking forward to trying the Requirements Manager product per your recommendation.
