The Forrester Wave™: Requirements Management, Q2 2008

HP And IBM Lead, With MKS, Telelogic, Compuware, And Borland Close Behind

Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 79-criteria evaluation of requirements management tools vendors, five standalone requirements management tools and four application life-cycle management (ALM) solutions that include requirements management capabilities went head-to-head. Standalone tools fared better on average, but HP Quality Center ranked alongside IBM's Rational RequisitePro in the Leaders circle, and MKS's application life-cycle management solution joined standalone requirements management tools from Borland Software, Compuware, and Telelogic in the Strong Performers category. However, all three of our Contenders — Microsoft, Rally Software Development, and Serena Software — offer requirements management within a larger ALM solution. The availability of mature requirements management capabilities within larger ALM solutions complicates application development organizations' tool-selection process.
