Modern Challenges Require a Modern Requirements Management Solution

Products are getting smarter and more connected. Smart innovations are emerging in every industry. Software for applications and embedded systems play a key role. Speed in creating and delivering these innovations is now essential to long-term business success.

To compete at this accelerated pace, you need to innovate fast and adapt to changes without sacrificing product quality.

Successful in its day, DOORS is now antiquated, lacking the agility to keep pace with modern development. You simply cannot expect it to meet today’s high demand when it was designed before the browser was invented, before the Internet was widely available, and before smart connected devices were envisioned. Instead, IBM is proposing migration to DOORS NG, which is based on a completely different technology, and still is not sufficiently capable to handle today’s complex projects involving electrical, mechanical, and software engineering.

What better time to move up to cutting-edge technology that can make your team more efficient AND cut costs?

Polarion has proven to be a viable, affordable, and low-risk solution for organizations searching to increase agility, innovation, collaboration, efficiencies, and competitiveness –  especially in regulated industries, where electronic signatures, baseline comparisons, traceability, or data migration/linking are critical.

“Polarion was significantly more affordable than the competing solution (DOORS). And it was simple to purchase: one single
solution that covers everything. No costly integration of several different ‘products.’ In fact, very little in the way of training and
professional services were needed for the roll-out.”

“Why work hard if you can work smart? With Polarion I can now monitor exactly what is happening at all times on the team. I can trace everything happening in the development shot. I can lock down parts of the development process like the migration of code from submitted to development and from development to production.”
