Visure with HP Quality Centre Integration

 

Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type: Application

 

Language: English

 


Description:
The extended integration between Visure and HP Quality Center9.2, 10 and 11, makes the most of your process, creating a seamless flow of information between both tools. Users will be able to focus on their activities, with their own toolset while benefiting from the results of the other activities in the lifecycle.


The integration allows to take the most of the new versioning capabilities in HP Quality Centre 10, as well as improve in the comparison capabilities in order to support large scale implementations of the tools.
This integration supports several integration points

 

- Export from Visure to HP Quality Centre:
1. Users can create Requirements in Visure and export them to HP Quality Centre in order to define the corresponding Test Cases.


2. User can create Requirements, and derive services from them in Visure. These services, and their traceability with Requirements can also be exported to HP Quality Centre in order to define the corresponding Test Cases from the Use Cases.


3. If services, with their corresponding flows are derived from Requirements, a first draft of functional tests can be easily defined out of those main and alternative flows. This initial set of Test Cases and their traceability with services and Requirements can be exported to HP Quality Centre in order to complete the tests

 

- Import from HP Quality Centre into Visure:
1. Test Cases can be imported back into Visure along with the traceability established in HP Quality Centre with Requirements and Use Cases. The Test Cases synchronization allows bringing at any given moment, the results of the Test Cases back into Visure for impact analysis.

Sparx Enterprise Architect Integration

 

Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type: Application

 

Language: English

 

 

Description:
Requirements are a key part in all projects, which must be integrated with the rest of the activities in the lifecycle. Taking this into account, Visure offers integrations between Visure and different modelling and design tools like EA.

 

Through this integration it is possible to send to EA the Visure requirements used during the analysis step and take them as the starting point for modelling and design. As in all the integrations developed by Visure this synchronization between both tools is performed using a powerful change management mechanism that avoid overwriting information.

This integration:
- Provides best-in-class, leading tools that best fit the specific needs.
- Provides a seamless platform for the Requirements Definition and Management, and the Design.
- Increases productivity in the software and systems development lifecycle reducing cost in time and money.
- Allows selecting other choices of integration at any moment through flexible and open architectures.
- Reduces adoption time through easy and powerful tool configuration
- Benefits the rest of the activities in the lifecycle.
- Supports different methodologies
- Facilitates change management
- Guarantees product quality throughout the complete lifecycle
- Fosters reusability of components, saving costs
- Allows document generation of all the artefacts for compliance

Visure Integration with Atlassian JIRA


Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type: Application

 

Language: English

 


Description:
Requirements are close related with bugs and issues, as both could be source of requirements or at least, sources of changes in requirements. Keeping traces between these elements and requirements helps to know the reason of changes and also helps in performing change impact analysis along with effort and time estimations.


The integration between Visure and JIRA provides analysts and QA a tool to manage and control their issues, requests, bugs and the communication between these artefacts and requirements, that is, a tool to help them build better quality systems.


This integration between Visure and Atlassian JIRA:
· Provides an integrated environment for teams to work with requirements, bugs and issues.
· Helps analysts and QA build better quality systems, tracking elements throughout the lifecycle
· Assist in performing change impact analysis along with effort and time estimations, keeping traces between these elements and requirements and helping to know the reason of changes
· Allows establishing and controlling traceability between the system requirements and requests managed in Visure, and the Issues and tasks managed by JIRA
· Communicates the follow up of the status of those issues based on the requirements implementation
· Gathers new issues and bugs from the test executions defined in Visure.

RiskCAT integration with Visure


Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type:Exchange

 

Language: English

 

 


Description:
The integration between RiskCAT and Visure allows to integrate these standards directly in the requirements platform. RiskCAT:


• Assists in determining the risk of the system according to the standard.
• Automatically derives the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) of the system according to the standard.
• Indicates the degree of obligation (recommended, mandatory, ...) for each measure.
• Enables the user to select the measures that shall be applied.
• Measures can be selected according to their relation to certain documents, activities, or key words.
• Allows on-line access to the exact wording of the measures or the definition of terms in the standard.
• Documents all decisions for review.
• Generates checklists for the selected measures.
• Store/Reload enables to start working with user-defined preselection of measures (e.g. company-wide guidelines).
• For almost all supported standards, a comparison module is available as extension. It allows comparing IEC 61508 (SIL 3) to the respective standard.

DOORS Integration


Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type: Application

 

Language: English

 


Description:
It is very common that suppliers and customers are using different requirement tools or even different departments of the very same company. To make the requirements interchange easier on these heterogenic environment, Visure provides an integration with IBM Rational DOORS.

 

This integration allows to export and import requirement along with their blocks (or modules), attributes, traces, etc. to a neutral format, XRI (an XML format created by Visure for requirements interchange). This integration allows also to import or export these XRI files to DOORS so the complete trip between Visure and DOORS (and the other way around) can be completed, allowing to work with the same requirements in both tools and also synchronizing changes between them.

 

The integration comes also with a complete change management mechanism that allows to detect changes when importing the requirements into Visure or DOORS so the data contained in these tools is not overwritten but a complete report with the changes is generated and then, users, may decide if they update or not

Rational Software Architect and Rational Software Modeller Integration


Category: Commercial

  Certified

Type: Application

 

Language: English

 

 

Description:

This integration covers the communications needs between analysis (requirements, use cases, etc) and modelling and design elements through an eclipse plug-in (platform supported by Rational) that is divided into two different modules.

 

The first of this modules (common for RSA and RSM) allows to send to Rational Visure requirements so users may work with them into the IBM tool and also trace them with design’s use cases.

 

The second module (only available for RSM) allows to export to Visure different design and modelling elements (like classes, activities, activity diagrams, etc) so they can be traced later with analysis elements (like requirements) switching Visure into a complete traceability centre.

MS Project Integration

 

Category: Free

  Certified

Type: Exchange

 

Language: English

 

 

 

Description:
The purpose of this integration is to help users transform their requirements, services and test scenarios into MS Project tasks, plan them, and be able to work with them. On the other hand, the user will be able to bring the MS Project tasks into Visure in form of requirements, services and test scenarios. Additionally, attributes from Visure can also be mapped to MS Project fields and MS Project fields (i.e. state of the task, duration…) can be mapped to Visure attributes.
