RDM (Requirements Definition and Management)

RDM tools collate data on a specific project or piece of software. The tools use this data to present a logical database of the project’s requirements in a format that everyone involved can access and understand. Stakeholders are able to see exactly what is needed and work collaboratively to make it happen. RDM tools may use classic databases and typically incorporate visual representations such as graphs and charts as well as simulations of different scenarios.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About RDM (Requirements Definition and Management)

For SMBs, the advantage of effective RDM tools is better communication. This could be between individuals or teams. This is important, particularly in a world where not everyone is working from the same office. Clearly defining and adjusting requirements in real-time allows projects to progress smoothly. Teams should encounter fewer obstacles, allowing businesses to get to launch faster.
