Visure Requirements is a requirements definition and management (RDM) solution specifically designed to provide integral support for the requirements lifecycle. Visure offers add-ins and modules to extend Visure Requirement’s capabilities, such as Visure Report Manager, Visure Quality Analyzer, and Visure Integrations.
This solution’s strengths reside within its robust requirements management capabilities, such as:
- Out-of-the-box templates and reports for regulations, standards, and compliance for customers in the medical, automotive, railroad, aerospace and defense, and financial industries.
- Graphical workflow editors that enable organizations to align Visure Requirements with their processes and formalize a common requirements specification structure.
- The ability to view project elements (e.g. requirements, tests, issues, risks) from multiple perspectives (e.g. impact analysis, status, release).
- Complete version control of artifacts, including rollback and roll-forward capabilities.
- Visual data models that highlight and assess the relationships and gaps among artifacts.
- Semantic analysis of requirements to assure completeness and adherence to quality standards.
Release 5.1 extends Visure Requirements’ reach into other areas of the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and enhances the tool’s user experience. Notable updates include:

So you’ve gone Agile. You do daily scrums, retrospectives, and all the “right” Agile ceremonies. But still your organization isn’t quite convinced. It is now critical to balance the drivers and goals of both Agile and traditional thinking in order to achieve organizational success.
Do you feel like your Agile teams are treading water – going through the motions but never going anywhere? It’s a risk, and practices such as daily standups, retrospectives, and demonstrations need to be used wisely or you risk losing discipline to meeting fatigue.
Stakeholders expect the speed and responsiveness of product delivery does not come at the expense of quality. QA tools offer retailers the ability to continuously ensure both business and technical quality standards are upheld, but these tools should not be viewed as a silver bullet.
No matter how good your product roadmap and backlog are, they are only as good as your audience’s ability to understand your vision and priority.
The scrum master is like the conductor of an orchestra, ensuring that every piece fits together at the right time to create something greater than the sum of the parts. You don’t have to know how to play each instrument, but you do have to understand what each part contributes to the overall masterpiece.
Tools are important to product teams, but only when they support solid people and processes.
