Change controlled Requirements Management with modern architecture, extremely performant and deeply integrated in your tool environment. Better overview by connection of traceability information across all tools.
Change Based Requirements Management
Requirements Management has long ceased to be an independent discipline in the product development process. Requirements are reused and changed whereas changes have to be planned and made reproducible. This is exactly where our requirements management platform agosense.fidelia comes in.
When editing request documents, every change is automatically recorded meticulous and can be assigned to a task or a change request. This makes planned changes reproducible at any time. In addition, the effects and necessary changes to other dependent artifacts can be detected even before the documents are edited.
Cross Domain Traceability
Creating, managing and displaying traces and dependencies is an important task of agosense.fidelia - and is therefore the data warehouse or central information platform for all relevant development data.
The platform makes it easy to create and maintain relationships between all artifacts via drag & drop. The linked information, such as Requirements, Test Cases, UML Models, etc. are visible to all people involved in a single interface at a glance.
Data can be sourced from virtually any popular ALM tool, allowing agosense.fidelia to create and display traceability information across all domains throughout the development process.
agosense.fidelia offers outstanding functionality out of the box and open interfaces to provide a deeply integration into existing development environments. Regardless of whether you work with classic or agile methods, agosense.fidelia improves communication within the company and business partners as well.
Ease of Use
A primary goal in the design of agosense.fidelia is the consideration of users in their daily work. The operation of agosense.fidelia is intuitive and based on common office products.
Seamless Integration into your Tool Environment
Integration into the existing tool environment is an important aspect of today's requirements management. agosense.fidelia has all the possibilities to seamlessly integrate into your tool chain.
For clients who regularly exchanging requirements documents with their business partners, agosense.fidelia also supports the ReqIF standard and offers import and export possibilities for a large range of other formats.
Better Overview & Identification of Impacts
The unique options such as Split Screen or Trace Columns allow a clear working environment. The impact analysis helps to understand dependencies and thus to identify in advance the risks and effects of changes.
Coordinate Team Work & improve Quality
Collaboration on documents, the automatic recording of all changes and integrated approval processes simplify work in teams and permanently improve product quality through optimal traceability of all processes.
Best Performance & high Availability
Fast response times for large amounts of data greatly improve usability and user acceptance. Modern architecture makes agosense.fidelia the most efficient and performant solution on the market.
Comply with regulatory Requirements
The unique capabilities for creation and visualization of traces provide the best prerequisites for meeting regulated industry requirements. Solution templates for example for ISO 26262 help with a quick implementation.
Lowest overall Cost
agosense.fidelia is not only characterized by extremely low license costs, but also guarantees the lowest costs for maintenance and operation due to its modern server and database architecture.
Integrated Change Management
Each step of creating or changing a requirements document is recorded down to the smallest detail in so called "Change Sets".
These Change Sets can be linked to tasks, change requests, user stories, etc. from your ALM tool. This ensures that the changes that have actually been made can always be compared to original plans.
These can then be released in a separate step - for example after review or before a sprint - for the official version of a document.
Changes to artefacts automatically generate a warning to linked artefacts. The warning contains information about the origin and content of the triggering change. Of course, it is possible to search or filter specific impact warnings in a sheet.
Traces to objects are displayed in a separate column directly in the sheet view (trace type, number of traces, ...). To display for example test coverage or missing traces, you can filter of accordingly. This is far more enhanced compared to usual Traceability Matrices.
Reviews & Releases
Based on the recorded changes, agosense.fidelia allows the execution of dedicated reviews and release processes for new or changed requirements.
Thus, comments and notes - even for multi-tiered reviews until the desired result has been achieved - ensure direct communication between author and reviewer.
Document and Solution Templates
agosense.fidelia enables the creation of an extensive range of document templates and complete solution templates.
These templates can be made available at a centralised location, to define pre-set attributes, workflow and dependency rules and even document structures across the different levels.
You would like to import or export your requirements documents in specific file formats for archiving, exchange or other purpose? No problem!
agosense.fidelia supports exporting a range of data formats, such as HTML, PDF, MS Office, OpenOffice, ReqIF, etc.. Of course also the use tables of contents, glossaries and many other individual formatting options is supported.
Do your users work on a shared document at the same time? Changes made by any user will be shown to all active users immediately in the document.
Of course agosense.fidelia prevents from conflicts by concurrent editing and thus ensures perfect collaboration between users in different locations.
Split Screen Trace View
Requirements are usually linked to other artefacts in the development cycle, such as UML models or test cases.
agosense.fidelia assists users by offering a special split screen mode to display these artefacts side by side, allowing connections to be established by drag & drop.
Intuitive Editing & Navigation
agosense.fidelia combines the structured capturing of requirements with the ease of use experienced in commonly available office products for word processing and spreadsheet applications.
This ensures, that the transition to agosense.fidelia will always be easy - regardless of which products your teams have used in the past.
Baselines, Branching & Merging
agosense.fidelia automatically records every change to an artefact.
In addition, baselines and branches of requirements documents can be created and compiled with just a few mouse clicks (Merging). This makes it easier to define and manage product variants and versions.
Of course agosense.fidelia offers extensive features to compare document branches and versions in different ways.
The automated versioning and creation of baselines ensures that documents are archived in their specific version.
agosense.fidelia goes even one step further: links and traces are also versioned and stored revision-safe within the baselines for later reproduction.
Extension via Plug-In Architecture
Part of agosense.fidelia is an extensive plug-in architecture based on open standards.
You can extend agosense.fidelia for example by own menu options, specific functions or processes that go beyond the standard scope.
Create UML diagrams and models of other standards directly in agosense.fidelia. Diagrams can be changed at any time - including the well-known functions for change history, version comparison, etc. in agosense.fidelia.
And much more ...
