Hi everyone-

I am looking to find out what are the explicit benefits of using the Requirements Management process in SOLMAN 7.2 instead continuing to use the 'traditional' requirements process such as (in our case) SharePoint and Excel. I am looking to make a business case to my managers on why switching over to SOLMAN for requirements management is a good idea, but so far it seems everything Requirement Management does is already available in these or other third party tools. Could someone please provide me with a rundown on what makes Requirements Management in SOLMAN 7.2 so unique it would be worth the initial cost of switching over to a new way of doing something? Thank you!

Hi Kelsey. Please find several benefits below:

  • Central storage for requirements and change management information along the lifecycle
  • Central point of access for requirements related process and technical documentation
  • Role-based approach for transparent communication between business and IT
  • Easy way to provide transparency for people involved
  • Modular, adaptable, predefined and User focused
  • Solution manager provides deep integration between business requirements and other areas inside SM, such as:
  • Solution Documentation,
  • Project Management,
  • Change and Release Management

As a result, by implementing Requirements Management in Solution Manager you will get following value:

  • Cost efficiency: no multiple applications for documentation
  • Clarity: RM integrated with other ALM activities
  • Reliability: Solution manager as one source of truth

Thank you Rodion- I appreciate the help.

I'd like to confirm the use of Project Management and Requirements Management areas of SOLMAN are not required in order to use SOLMAN's other features, specially the Change Management functional area and our ability to manage transports. I understand PPM/Requirements Management are integrated processes/functional areas and I want to be sure that any changes we put through can start by us creating a request for change (in response to an incident) or by directly creating a change document for new requirements if needed. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated- thank you!


Correct Kelsey. Project Management and Requirements Management are not required to use Change Management.


Thank you for the great help Rodion!
