Best AI?: …

Best AI?: TRON, HAL 9000, C3PO or IBM?

I bet you have read a book or seen a movie that had an “all-knowing” AI. But have you seen a practical, pragmatic AI that can inexpensively help you do your job better for about $65 a month?

You may have seen IBM Watson defeat Jeopardy players a few years back. We have now applied that same machine learning technology to help you to reduce the time you spend on managing and reviewing requirements.

This AI capability combined with our requirements management solution enables organizations to better manage software and product requirements – as well as compliance and regulatory requirements – to accelerate their delivery cycles and improve product and project quality. 

Interested to see if our AI Requirements Assistant can help you? Then reach out to me to see if it might be a fit for your organization.

Please let me know if your schedule allows for a quick call. Thanks again and looking forward to hearing from you.

Introducing IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Suite
IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) is the leading platform for today’s complex product and software development. ELM extends the functionality of standard ALM tools, providing an integrated, end-to-end solution that offers full transparency and traceability across all engineering data. From requirements through testing and deployment, ELM optimizes collaboration and communication across all stakeholders, improving decision- making, productivity and overall product quality.

Connect to a virtual classroom for a series of one-hour workshops and experience the power of these tools. There is no charge to register and attend.

Wednesday, May 5th 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern)
DOORS® Next (formerly DNG)
View, modify, annotate, trace, and report on requirements.
Managing Requirements with IBM DOORS Next v7
In this one-hour, hands-on lab, you’ll work through several exercises that demonstrate how to view, modify, trace, and report on requirements using IBM DOORS Next. This workshop is a companion to our webinar, Managing Requirements from RFP Response to Product Development with DOORS Next. available on-demand via our website.

Wednesday, May 19th 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern)
IBM Engineering Test Management/ETM (formerly RQM)
Explore four validation scenarios and synchronize requirements with validation test case plan.
Validating Requirements with IBM ETM v7
In this one-hour, hands-on lab, you’ll work through four kinds of validation scenarios and an exercise that demonstrates how requirements are synchronized with validation test cases. This workshop is a companion to our webinar, Validating Requirements with IBM Engineering Test Management (ETM), available on-demand via our website.

Successfully Measuring Progress Using Module of Metrics in California High-Speed Rail

Date: Thursday, February 25th
Time: 12:00PM Eastern Time (9:00AM Pacific)

Click Here to Register

This webinar provides insights into the use of modules of metrics (MoM) in the California High-Speed Rail System (CHSRS), a multi-billion-dollar program procured in several individual procurement contracts including civil works, track and systems, trainsets, and the train operator. There are currently three active civil works contracts, spanning 119 miles including the design and construction of over 225 different guide way sections, aerial structures, trenches, roadway overheads, and other structures.

Requirements are managed in DOORS, with hundreds of modules and thousands of requirements in each contract. With the progression of design and construction metrics were developed, measuring how the requirements were addressed in several thousand contractor design and construction submittals, eventually evolving into the MoM approach. As the first structures are being readied for acceptance, certification and hand-over to the next track and systems contractor, it is of even more importance to demonstrate that all applicable requirements have been satisfied by each contract.

The CHSRS MoM approach has been successfully implemented as a pilot for one the three civil works contracts and is planned to be rolled out to the remaining civil works and any or the future contracts. This webinar will discuss the MoM objectives, challenges, implementation, and the use of the MoM for both technical and managerial use.

Presenter: Oliver Hoehne of Parsons Brinckerhoff
