VDC 關於Research


The realm of software design is changing. Organizations creating software and systems in both enterprise/IT and embedded industries must revise their development strategies from initial requirements definition through final product delivery. Requirements management (RM) tools are no longer relegated only to the earliest stages of software creation. Technological and market dynamic changes are encouraging RM tool use across the full development lifecycle. Starting in the earliest phases of software development, demand for commercial requirements management (RM) and definition tools is accelerating as systems under design grow more complicated and face more regulatory oversight. Development teams are finding it increasingly difficult to create and manage relationships or dependencies between requirements and the associated artifacts without the use of purpose-built RM solutions.

Likewise, the market for software integration and deployment solutions is transforming. Engineering organizations are trying to avoid long integration bottlenecks by integrating code earlier and more often into a shared repository, using a continuous integration server. While demand for this functionality rises, the stand-alone continuous integration (CI) tool market is facing disruption from competing open-source solutions. In response, CI tool vendors' strategies are evolving. Rather than focus on CI, tool vendors are more frequently offering solutions supporting higher levels of functionality, such as continuous deployment or release management.

This report analyzes the market and emerging trends for commercially available RM and CI tools employed in the development of embedded or enterprise/IT software and systems. Tools covered in this report are those used primarily for requirements elicitation, definition, and management or as a repository for merging working copies of code to a shared mainline.

What questions are addressed?

  • How are software and system development methodologies impacting the evaluation of RM tools?
  • In what ways does the use of Agile and DevOps influence demand for CI solutions?
  • How should RM suppliers such as Blueprint, Jama Software, and Polarion approach embedded industries currently dominated by incumbent vendors such as IBM and Dassault Systemes?
  • What additional capabilities are users of CI tools seeking?
  • Which qualities are most important to those evaluating RM and CI solutions?
  • How is the interest in and opportunity related to the Internet of Things (IoT) influencing the CI and RM markets?
  • In what ways is the Requirements Interchange Format (ReqIF) impacting the RM supplier landscape?
