Why Read This Report

Smart application development leaders are catching on: Good software requirements are critical to delivering high-quality software. Requirements tool vendors are getting the message too. They're responding to changing customer requirements, including greater focus on eliminating waste, increasing adoption of Agile approaches, and the ever-growing global dispersion of development teams that is powering the need for improved team collaboration. These shifts are driving significant change in the requirements tools market, which continues to evolve rapidly. The market is filled with a wealth of new functionality to try, a slew of new software vendors getting in on the action, and improved requirements tool sets from long-standing requirements tool stalwarts. So open your wallets, but take a pragmatic, problem-based approach to tool selection to make the wisest use of your (possibly significant) investment.
