Drum Roll….Phase 1 2016 Requirements Management Tool Evaluation Results are Published!

Over the last 6 months, the Seilevel team has refreshed our Requirements Management Tool Study and the results are almost ready! As a preview of what’s to come in the new year, we are releasing the Phase 1 results now (Download here: http://bit.ly/1RS6D3O). Phase 1 involved narrowing 185 possible candidate tools down to 70 that seemed relevant to our criteria. Of those, 45 were actually ones we could evaluate (others we couldn’t get demos of and deemed not worth pursuing further). Keep in mind, there are some tools that are great tools that aren’t in Phase 1 because they just didn’t align well with the focus of our study.

Phase 1 2016

Part of our Requirements Management Tool Study refresh included revamping the evaluation criteria. We prioritized a total of 241 requirements with weighted values of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 (where 8 is high). We evaluated the 45 tools included in Phase 1 against what we considered to be the top priority criteria (28 of them). We are evaluating 24 tools in Phase 2, the final phase, against 207 total criteria. Our final write up of the results will be released in early 2016.

I would encourage you not to read too much into these scores by themselves, since they are based on only a fraction of the total criteria we are evaluating. If you have questions about any tool not in our Phase 2, reach out to us – we are happy to share what we learned!

    I want to say thank you for the list of relevant providers according to the PMI. There are a couple of things I am interested in understanding on your valuation.
    1. Could you provide the list of criteria that the PMI approved for the requirements management structuring. Each corporation has a niche of analytics.
    2. Is your group able to filter the set by currency origin in accordance with IMF distributions requirements.
    3. Is there an option for filtering the list above according to global legal system structures?
    4. Is there a filter available for the requirements according to regulatory compliance structures such as ISO, EN, CSA…ect… Filtering the set by geography of Compliance entity. This is the most important because the data provided by the proprietary corporation above changes according to the venue the corporation is providing the analytics for. When I am on a project in New Zealand, I don’t want a data set provided at a higher cost from company in Germany when they are not even a part of the contract loop anyways… understand?
    5. Send me your email address. I have an interesting point I would like to discuss.
