Requirements management player SteelTrace has announced plans to integrate with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System.
The company said it will enhance VSTS’s end-to-end project coverage by adding quality and depth to project requirements capture, documentation, and management. Thanks to the integration between SteelTrace and Microsoft VSTS, project teams will be able to create, prioritize, and manage requirements, resources, and projects throughout the application lifecycle, according to SteelTrace.
The company explained that its software enables the capture of structured requirements within a natural framework, creating a logical flow for the project, ensuring that all aspects are catered for and nothing is omitted, including alternate flows, branches, inter-dependencies, and operational requirements. The company said Microsoft’s VSTS does not directly address these areas.
SteelTrace counts ADP, Boeing, Intel, LogicaCMG, National Australia Bank, Raytheon, and Sprint among its customers. In the requirements management space, it competes with Telelogic, Borland, Compuware, Mercury Interactive, IBM Rational, and Serena Software.
