Dear Polarion Friends,

I’m very pleased to announce that Polarion 2012 is available now! This release extends Polarion’s leadership in the Requirements and Application Lifefycle Management (ALM) markets. But the news doesn’t end there. With this release, Polarion also enters the market for Quality Assurance and Test Management with a brand new product: Polarion® QA™.

At last there’s a modern, web-based collaborative solution for quality assurance and testing that delivers a viable, affordable alternative to the long established, but overly expensive, technologically antique "dinosaur" point solutions from HP and IBM. This should be great news not only for Polarion customers, but also for quality assurance and testing managers everywhere.

You can learn more about Polarion QA on our newly revamped www.polarion.com website at www.polarion.com/products/qa.

I wish you happy reading.

Yours sincerely
Frank Schröder
CEO, Polarion Software

Polarion Software at embedded world and STAREAST in Orlando, Florida

Polarion Software took to the road in March, exhibiting at the embedded world show in Nuremberg, Germany. We were pretty sure that Polarion’s requirements management and test management solutions can benefit many developers of embedded systems, and this show was definitely the place to find out. The response and interest at our booth were super. The most intense interest focused on our Automotive and Medical Device solutions. Both industries are heavily into embedded systems development, and Polarion’s all-in-one turnkey packages seemed to strike a chord with the embedded systems developers who visited us.

Speaking of visiting, we hope to see many of you at the STAREAST conference in Orlando, Florida USA April 15-20, 2012. Visit our booth for an interactive demo how our solutions can fit into your environment. Then you can go to Disney World!

Learn more about Polarion and STAREAST live and virtual. Make an appointment with our booth staff.
