DOORS/ERS 7.0 Receives Four Stars from Software Development Magazine

DOORS/ERS 7.0 Receives Four Stars from Software Development Magazine - Excellent Requirements Linking and Reporting Capabilities Cited - MALMÖ, Sweden and IRVINE, California - February 17, 2004 - Telelogic (Stockholm Exchange: TLOG), the leading global provider of solutions for advanced systems and software development, today announced that Telelogic DOORS/ERS (Enterprise Requirements Suite) 7.0 received four out of five stars after an in-depth product review conducted by Software Development magazine in its February 2004 issue. According to the magazine's rating system, four stars equates to "Great" and "Probably belongs in your shop." Telelogic DOORS is a multi-platform, enterprise-wide system designed to capture, link, trace, analyze and manage information to ensure a project's compliance to specified requirements and standards. Used by more than 100,000 users at more than 1,200 companies around the world, DOORS has been named market share leader by industry analyst firms META Group, Yphise and The Standish Group. DOORS provides a proven, reliable foundation for a requirements-driven development process that seamlessly optimizes communication, collaboration, and validation throughout the enterprise. It is the first tool that makes the power of dynamic requirements management available to everyone across the development lifecycle, even non-technical end-users, to ensure that what is finally produced meets originally specified requirements. The Software Development product review, "Bringing Order to Chaos" by Allan McNaughton, principal analyst at Technical Insight LLC, praises DOORS as a powerful and flexible requirements management tool that is easy to implement and use. The review also supports and validates the benefits of Telelogic's industry leading approach to requirements-driven development: The review states, "Linking requirements to the development process enforces accountability and gets everyone's ear. Links give you traceability, letting you demonstrate that what you're building satisfies user requirements." McNaughton also cited the unique "Dynamic Requirements Management" capability of DOORS. "DOORS distinguishes itself from its peers by adding a time-based component to links. This enables DOORS to support parallel development by teams working on different increments, allowing links to be made to different sets of baselined data." The product review concludes, "Overall, I was impressed with DOORS 7.0. It can easily streamline an organization's product development process¾DOORS users can capture, manage and report on requirements with more accuracy and less effort than with traditional methods. The product manages to accomplish this without imposing artificial constraints on the project management or development process¾the level of formality that DOORS adds to your workflow is largely controlled by how you use it." "Following last year's four-star review of TAU/Developer 2.0 in Software Development, we are very pleased that Telelogic DOORS ERS has also been recognized as a 'must have' tool for larger development teams involved in distributed or parallel development," said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO of Telelogic. "This very positive review validates that DOORS 7.0 ERS, released in October 2003, continues Telelogic's legacy of innovation and raises the bar for requirements management tools."
