Dear Polarion Friends,

It’s hard to believe that time of year is already here when the days start getting shorter and it becomes darker outside much earlier. It is also the time of year when most organizations have started their strategic and budget planning processes. At Polarion we have been busy over the summer months preparing for just this and now our customer service and sales team would like to help you with your planning and software needs.

So for all of you that are looking for new Requirements Management, Test Management or ALM software to roll out in 2014 or for our valued customers who are looking to expand their existing products check out Polarion’s Early Access Program (EAP) and our Service Release 2 (SR2) and let us help you get started right now.!

Happy Reading,
Frank Schröder


Getting ready for Polarion’s Early Access Program (EAP).

For the past 3 years we have engaged with our user community through our EAP. Collaborating this way has proven a great help to us in understanding what our users value most, and in prioritizing our product development accordingly. Again this year, we invite the community to interact with our team on the next major Polarion version: Polarion 2014. Learn more...

Review: Polarion Live 2013 - User Conference in Stuttgart

Again this year, Stuttgart, Germany was host to over 140 people from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Finland who joined us for the Polarion User Conference on October 1, 2013. The program featured presentations not only by Polarion employees, but also from several customer and partner companies. Attendees came away better able to utilize Polarion solutions within their own organizations, benefitting from information gained from interactive discussions, networking within the community, and sessions covering hot industry topics like AML/PLM Convergence ("PALM"), DevOps, Variant Management, and more.
