WASHINGTON (04/10/2000) - Quality Systems & Software Inc., Mount Arlington, N.J., recently introduced its new Doors Enterprise Requirements Suite, which allows geographically distributed users to collaborate on the design and development of enterprise information technology solutions.
Requirement Management software such as Doors -- the core product in the new QSS suite -- can help agency development teams communicate their system needs, track and manage development and validate that products are being built according to specifications, said Bill Coughlin, QSS director of corporate communications.
The new components of the suite give users different options to work with the Doors software, said Paul Raymond, Doors Enterprise Requirements Suite product manager. DoorsRequireIT lets team members participate using a Microsoft Corp.
Word-based editor, and DoorsNet enables them to access the project management system using a World Wide Web browser.
The suite has particular benefit in government, where project teams must prove they've built what they were supposed to, Raymond said.
The suite features a change proposal system with e-mail notification to all project participants when the requirements need to be changed and user discussion threads to facilitate communication. Doors Enterprise Requirements Suite will be available in June 2000. A single 10-seat license of Doors is listed at $14,000.
