Highlights of Atlas 2.0

Requirements gathering via email

The Atlas 2.0 ‘Gather’ feature simplifies and centralizes the gathering of business requirements. Atlas enables any stakeholder to send ideas via email to the Atlas Whiteboard. Atlas converts the email content into the appropriate type of asset, for example rich text, screen captures, file attachments and links. This provides a straightforward elicitation process for any user, from any device.

Updates to Define

Improved Delivery Status

At a glance, Atlas users can understand the real time delivery status of any requirement. This quick view shows related stories, status, owners, dates and remaining work. Atlas users can leverage the realtime delivery status to make informed decisions about change impact prior to undertaking any requirement changes.

Requirements to Agile

Sometimes you may need further detail beyond the summary status provided in the Atlas user interface. Atlas enables you to jump to the related stories in the relevant agile tool right from a requirement.

Import / Export

Atlas CSV import allows users to import lists requirements directly into the requirement structure. Used Atlas together with requirement CSV export, allows requirements to be moved between projects, documents, and any other asset related to sharing of requirements.

Updates to Planning

Plan review and socialization

Authors can easily create and share plans with other authors and stakeholders in real-time. Feedback from any stakeholder is immediately visible to all other stakeholders and authors, assuring all contributors stay in alignment with the latest updates. Requirement authors can quickly move between planning and gathering feedback to enable them to quickly adjust plans.

Tracking Time Machine

This unique capability gives the user a tangible understanding of how the project has evolved over time. Understanding the scope changes and their impact to final outcome helps teams learn from the past.

Advanced Reporting and MS Word report generation

Reporting provides insight and detailed analysis on all projects for planning, retrospective, and delivery purposes. Atlas offers the ability to deliver detailed reports on requirements, attributes, relationships, tags, discussions and delivery tracking. These reports can be quickly formatted into an MS Word document for convenience.
