Demand Management

demand-management-1codeBeamer’s newest addition is the Demand Management module. Demand Management allows companies to manage the entire Demand Lifecycle, starting with capturing ideas and demands, and then ranking (voting and prioritizing) them and managing the approval process for each demand.

Demand definition is based on Epics, which are business initiatives set by managers. Demands are expressed in terms of business values (cost, risk etc.) that in turn, influence the ranking, voting and final approval mechanism. Accepted demands will be the basis for generating new requirements applicable across projects.

The Demand Management module is integrated into the codeBeamer ALM tool. This enables effective Demand to Requirements process management, from development through IT operations. Agile planning methods (Kanban board) and customizable workflows support the efficient planning and execution of demands.

Bubble visualization is widely used to identify and manage project risk.
