Serena Requirements Manager helps you orchestrate your entire requirements management process – helping you give your customers what they really want, accelerate your development, and confidently deliver high-quality requirements. Unlike rigid and complex requirements tools, Serena Requirements Manager provides comprehensive requirements capabilities, process coordination, requirements insight and quality requirements across the entire application lifecycle, no matter how many different teams, tools, changes, or methodologies are involved.
Serena customers have been able to dramatically shorten release times, increase customer satisfaction, and reduce overall development costs:
Serena Requirements Manager is powered by Serena Dimensions RM, Serena Prototype Composer and Serena Business Manager (SBM).

Serena Requirements Manager provides organizations comprehensive capabilities to manage requirements from initial request all the way through to production release. Serena can help organizations deliver what their customers really want by enabling tight collaboration throughout the entire requirements lifecycle – including requirements definition, requirements development, and requirements validation. With Serena Requirements Manager, organizations can capture requests, create high-fidelity prototypes, manage detailed requirements hierarchies and linkages, and do much more.
Comprehensive capabilities to work with customers across the entire requriements lifecycle – from request to prototype to production release
Unlike solutions that require thick-client installations or have limited web capabilities, Serena Requirements Manager helps promote collaboration with partners and customers via a robust web solution for requirements definition, modeling, and approval. And real-time status updates for any requirement – no matter the tool or methodology – helps organizations reduce the time and cost in communicating status to all stakeholders.
2. Rapid Requirements Coordination
Serena Requirements Manager helps organizations develop requirements faster by automating handoffs and breaking down the requirements silos across customers, teams, and tools. Serena accelerates the entire requirements management process by orchestrating the flow of information and processes across different team members and stakeholders.

4. Quality Requirements with Confidence
Managing requirements would be relatively easy if it weren't for change. Serena Requirements Manager helps organizations confidently and efficiently deliver high-quality releases by making it easier to reuse requirements and manage changes across tools, teams, and releases.
Serena Requirements Manager provides a unified change management process across all tools, teams, and processes to ensure all the right people are involved in reviewing potential changes to requirements. While dashboards and alerts provide real-time visibility into any change, Serena's enterprise impact analysis also helps everyone easily identify which projects and customers are impacted by changes to requirements.
Reusable "requirements containers" and unified change management processes ensure delivery of high-quality requirements
Unlike some requirements management tools that have requirements embedded deep inside documents, Serena Requirements Manager provides "requirements containers" that help organizations quickly baseline, compare, and reuse sets of requirements from other projects. Serena Requirements Manager also provides an orchestrated process to review and control inheritance or duplication of requirements.
