Stay On Track

Capturing your requirements is vital. But what do you do with them once you have them? How do you see your requirements through, from elicitation to development?

A misstep in requirements management will flow into your software, affecting your vision, its efficiency and ultimately your number one metric for success – customer satisfaction.

OneSpring applies practices that are adaptable to your budget, your project and most importantly, your culture. We ensure that what has been captured during the requirements elicitation phase is appropriately communicated to the development team, leaving nothing for translation.

With our consistent, yet flexible approach to requirements management, your vision will remain steadfast from beginning to end.

It is not surprising that requirements management has become such a problem in software development. Building successful software is difficult and complex.

Think about this:

  • 60% of teams managing at least 5,000 requirements also had at least 50 team members. Almost 80% of teams with less than 100 requirements also had less than 25 people.*

Requirements are growing, as are the number of people involved.

That is where OneSpring separates itself. With our innovative and forward-thinking methods, we effectively manage a number of requirements that would traditionally require a team eight to ten times our size. We have already captured over 400,000 requirements. That experience goes a long way to handling your project, and reducing cost and confusion.

In addition:

  • 83% of teams use Microsoft Word or Excel documents to communicate and manage requirements.*

How can you provide original and ground-breaking software to your customers in a proficient manner when you are not affording yourself the tools to effectively do so? Endless amounts of paper or computer files leave plenty to chance, in the form of misinterpretation or oversight. We will bring your management process into the future through modern tools and practices.

And as your requirements change after they have been visualized and documented, which happens in our always evolving business, we work with you to visualize the impact. Then you can be clear on the effect of the proposed changes to your project’s timeline, cost and features.

OneSpring updates your requirements management process; leaving unnecessary cost, rework and miscommunication in the past.

Be Informed. At All Times.

Consider:

  • Only 17% of projects are delivered on-time and on-budget at least 80% of the time.**
  • Most projects have a success rate of less than 60%.**

So what is the problem? Many times, projects fail because of inadequate requirements management.

  • When a project fails, missed or poorly defined and communicated requirements are at fault 72% of the time.**

The key to improving the success of software projects is through great tools as well as collaboration within a strong requirements management process.

OneSpring is predicated on a collaborative effort from our people to your team, giving a consistent vision to your project. Collaboration in the requirements management stage keeps everyone in sync. It is also means we can adapt to your needs, whether it is at the beginning or right in the middle of a project. When everyone is queued in, shifts or changes are more easily navigated.

The complexity of software development demands strong, collaborative processes for your requirements management.

With our tools, methods and expertise, your project won’t fail because of a lack of communication at the management stage. It will only be strengthened.

Let us help you manage software that isn’t bogged down by the same old problems. Contact us today.
