Borland proudly announces the general availability of Atlas 3.2! If you already use Atlas and you have a maintenance contract, you can upgrade to Atlas 3.2 for free.

Borland Atlas is a central platform for gathering and delivering requirements. New features and improvements mean Atlas now offers even more flexibility to help teams collaborate efficiently and stay in sync. Business as well as Agile teams can clearly see a real-time status of their software delivery life-cycle. Respond faster to market demands with Atlas' new Agile requirements management features.

Diagramming

Atlas now contains native diagramming capabilities that you can use as Concept or Requirement types.
The vast Shapes library contains the following for standard diagrams: BPMN, UML, Flowcharts, Use Case, Lean Mapping, Process Engineering, SysML, EIP, Cisco, AWS, Azure, and more. For mockups, there are shapes for Windows Applications, Internet Applications, iOS, and Android.

Synchronizing Requirements

Many times the same Requirements are used for multiple Projects. Atlas provides the ability to reuse requirements by defining them once centrally, and connecting (synchronizing) them with other Projects.

Milestone Tracking

Agile teams move quickly, incrementally adding new capability sprint after sprint. The agile delivery team is dependent on requirement information to assure priorities / expectations are clearly understood upfront.
When the project milestone planning (content, priority, purpose, and timing) side is not ready, the delivery team is left to make assumptions to fill in the gaps. This practice can lead to misaligned expectations and rework. Those on the business side need to align their milestone planning with the delivery team's sprints.
Atlas Requirement Date Planning enables Atlas users to define specific definition dates for features, and measure / track against those timeframes. By defining and tracking the project milestones, Atlas users can align their work with the delivery team, assuring business needs are available when requested by engineering.

Date Type User Defined Attribute

The Date Type User Defined Attribute type allows Administrators to create any date value for their projects.

New Requirement Type: Diagram

A new Diagram Requirement Type allows you to create diagrams instead of text descriptions for your Requirements. The Diagram Requirement Type is designated with a tree icon in the Requirement Tree.
