More Than Just Requirements Management

Comprehensive requirements management along with risk, test and validation, and product line management capabilities – all in a single platform. Overcome the limitations of standalone tools with a modern, connected ALM solution: Codebeamer.

Requirements management tools vs complete ALM platforms


Standalone requirements management tools are fast to deploy and can have advantages over using spreadsheets or legacy software. However, limitations arise when developing more complex products due to the disconnect with other disciplines like development and testing. These limitations can slow development and cause issues when completing regulatory audits.

On the other hand, comprehensive ALM platforms give all teams building the product a single source of truth for the entire development lifecycle. These are more suitable for products with greater complexity, subject to stringent regulations, and requiring speed and predictability in development.

Traceability across disciplines

Tracing requirements and testing and validating those requirements is challenging when development artifacts live in different systems. It only gets harder with greater product complexity and ever-changing requirements.

Manual effort

Hand-offs between requirements, development, and testing are tedious and time-consuming when each team uses separate tools. This unstructured flow is susceptible to errors and ultimately causes data inconsistency.

Higher Total Cost of Ownership

Integrations with multiple tools must be built and maintained - adding to the total investment. Moreover, onboarding, training, and license costs for different tools result in an expensive toolchain with ROI hard to justify.

Collaboration challenges

With separate environments for requirements, source code management, risk, testing, and verification, cross-functional teams lack a central platform to share documents and track changes, resulting in delays and quality issues.
