Extensive integration with Office tools.

inteGREAT uses TFS 2010, 2012 or TFS Services as its application server; SharePoint as its document repository, complemented by integrations with Office and Project. These are further extensions of the overall Microsoft tool suite; providing end to end ALM functionality and value to a wide array of project stakeholders.

This is one of the core phases of the requirements gathering process. inteGREAT empowers its users, by providing them with the most relevant and state of art tools; enabling users to easily gather the required information from clients and stakeholders. Commonly this phase is known as Requirement Elicitation. These requirements are further analyzed to prepare facts and figures for Business Analysts to track possible results based on elicitation. This procedure is known as Impact Assessment. inteGREAT provides users with a rich requirement taxonomy that is adaptable to various industry conventions and standards. inteGREAT framework comprises of various requirement dimension that lets end users define project strategy, risk plan, business, stakeholder, functional and non-functional requirements.

Prototype, experience and explore software applications.

Prototype, experience and explore software applications.

inteGREAT Simulation gives organizations a powerful way to prototype, experience and explore software applications, before they are built; resulting in a quicker time to market, an improved user experience, lowered project costs and reduced change requests. Analysts can quickly build confidence in the final solution by taking end-users through this unique experience of validation.

Creation and ongoing change management of documents.

Creation and ongoing change management of documents.

In most cases the creation and ongoing change management of documents is a significant cost throughout requirements elicitation and definition phase. inteGREAT addresses this expensive, and often unproductive process with a cost effective approach to document automation. inteGREAT automatically generates multiple types of Word or Excel documents, flowcharts, UML diagrams, spreadsheets, reports etc.; saving a lot of man power and hours of manual work. inteGREAT also has a Custom Reporting feature that enables its users to create on-demand customized reports, at will. Using this feature users can design, generate and manage reports through a single repository, thus offering users a flexible environment to generate reports based on the requirements of their business domain. Users can also generate reports according to standard out-of-the-box formats; inteGREAT has a built-in feature that allows access to a large reports library. The contents of this library can be shared, imported/exported and customized by product users.

inteGREAT provides seamless bidirectional roundtrip integration with Team Foundation Server. This provides information like Goals, Risks, Requirements, User Stories and Test Cases with traceability to developers, testers, PM’s and other stakeholders who might also use Visual Studio, Eclipse, Web Access and other tools.

From goal to requirements to process.

From goal to requirements to process.

Requirements Traceability is a sub-discipline of requirements management and it documents the life of a requirement, tracks every change and links its relationships with other items within a project. inteGREAT provides extensive traceability support through which users can trace and view different requirements at a glance. inteGREAT Traceability Viewer gives a visual representation of requirements coverage with respect to all relevant dimensions of the project. The Traceability Viewer provides the user with special ‘filter’ queries, which enable specific views of the traceability. This then provides instant ‘impact analysis’ of a change to any requirement in inteGREAT.

Apply to one or more properties of any given object.

Apply to one or more properties of any given object.

A workflow defines the acceptable sequence of states through which a requirement must flow (such as New to Open to Closed/Rejected). The workflow can be applied to one or more properties including dependent properties of any given object. These workflows are user configurable for any and all objects in inteGREAT.

Roundtrip authoring with Word, Excel and Visio for TFS.

Roundtrip authoring with Word, Excel and Visio for TFS.

Users can author requirements natively in Word or Excel and then save the contents directly into inteGREAT. Bulk edits can also be performed in Excel and saved to inteGREAT. These features allow users to stay with the familiar Office user interface, while benefiting from the power of a requirements tool.

Author requirements in WYSIWYG Word templates.

Author requirements in WYSIWYG Word templates.

inteGreat Smart Docs has been designed as a Microsoft Word plug- in; supporting Word 2007, 2010 and subsequent releases. It allows users to author requirements in WYSIWYG Word templates and save the results directly to inteGREAT and then to TFS. With Smart Docs users can author, reuse, trace requirements and then collaborate using the results; directly in the familiar Word user interface.

Baselines provide the ability to identify a point in history.

Baselines provide the ability to identify a point in history.

During the software development life cycle, every project is affected by change. Users can baseline a project in inteGREAT, save the baseline to TFS, and then compare current state to any baseline by creating a difference report in Excel. Users can revert the project to any baseline at any point of requirement development.

From business strategy, requirements and business rules.

From business strategy, requirements and business rules.

Create traceability from business strategy, requirements, and business rules to data elements, processes, use cases, reporting requirements, simulation and decision model. Produce visual and tabular requirements traceability reports.

The contents of this library can be shared, imported/exported and customized by product users. By automating the intricate, labor intensive process of generating requirement documents, from an overview level to detailed level design specifications , inteGREAT has considerably lessened (cut in half) the amount of time and resources required in the requirement gathering phase of projects.
