Visualize requirements so everyone "gets the picture".

Blueprint provides a broad range of rich, visual requirements editors so there’s a format that’s perfectly suited to each requirement. Ambiguity is removed making requirements more engaging and easier to understand. Requirements are integrated promoting consistency and ensuring that nothing is missed. Requirements and their properties are listed together in a spreadsheet-style editor where users quickly and easily make edits. Shared custom views keep everyone focused on what’s important. Traceability, comments, and file attachments are supported for all artifacts, even diagrams, and to a very detailed level - steps in use cases and screen controls in user interface mockups. In addition custom requirements artifacts and properties can be created, enabling Blueprint to support your process.

Thoroughly validate requirements to meet business needs.

Thoroughly validate requirements to meet business needs.

Blueprint provides the features needed to engage stakeholders and confidently drive a set of requirements to final approval. Blueprint’s review dashboards help control large-scale requirements reviews among diverse groups of people to their conclusion. Rich requirements simulations keep stakeholders engaged and let them understand the true meaning of the requirements, the catalyst for better feedback. And automatically-generated requirements documents support existing company processes and provide the hard-copy artifacts which are often needed for official sign-off.

Collaborate with stakeholders and the team.

Collaborate with stakeholders and the team.

Blueprint users stay in tune with what’s happening across multiple projects through their personal Activity Center and interact through Blueprint’s many social features. These features are pervasive throughout the product helping to draw people into the conversation and encourage interaction. Visual requirements formats and rich simulation removes ambiguity and makes complex requirements easier to understand, helping facilitate collaboration. Instead of getting vital stakeholder feedback later in the lifecycle, Blueprint provides the features needed to engage stakeholders early and often during the project.

Manage requirements efficiently and effectively.

Manage requirements efficiently and effectively.

Blueprint provides efficient and effective management of requirements, people, and projects. Each and every requirement is versioned automatically by Blueprint and a complete history of changes is kept. Baselines of all or any subset of the requirements provide the foundation to reliably manage requirements changes. Traceability that’s fast to create, visible while working, and easy to analyze helps assess impact, confirm coverage, and manage scope. Flexible and powerful requirements reuse saves time and promotes consistency while modern administrative features and seamless integration with enterprise directories makes onboarding new users and maintaining projects simple.

Integrate with other tools in the life-cycle.

Integrate with other tools in the life-cycle.

Blueprint has practical integrations with the most popular tools used on application development projects. It automatically generates a comprehensive set of tests from the requirements and populates ALM solutions with those tests, the requirements, and complete traceability. Blueprint also provides integration with Microsoft Excel allowing users to leverage Excel’s many features or use it as a conduit to other third-party toolsets. Blueprint’s integrations help ensure alignment of all groups who collaborate on application projects.
