Orchestrate the Full Requirements Lifecycle

Serena 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, organizations can capture requests, create high-fidelity prototypes, manage detailed requirements hierarchies and linkages, and do much more.

Automate Requirements Traceability

Serena helps organizations develop requirements faster by automating handoffs and breaking down the requirements silos across customers, teams, and tools. Automated audit trails and integrated links between specs, variants, code, tests, and releases provides complete traceability and ensures all releases meet customer requirements and regulatory standards. Orchestrating Serena's Process and Work Management platform with Serena's Requirement Management solutions can provide process-based metrics that help organizations reduce cycle time for each step in the requirements, development, and delivery process.

Reduce Requirements Churn

Serena helps organizations confidently and efficiently deliver high-quality releases by making it easier to reuse requirements and manage changes across tools, teams, and releases. Unlike some requirements management tools that have requirements embedded deep inside documents, Serena provides "requirements containers" that help organizations quickly baseline, compare, and reuse sets of requirements from other projects.
