Reducing Time to Market

Whether your software customers are internal or external, time to market drives profitability. The question is "how do you deliver as fast as possible without sacrificing budget and quality?" Fortunately, addressing issues related to visibility, rework, processes, and team distribution has a strong correlation to reducing product development times, while maintaining cost and quality. With the right software platform, you can address these issues quickly and cost effectively.

Address the challenges inherent in improving time to market with the Seapine TestTrack Product Development Suite.

Lack of Visibility

An inability for the team and management to see real-time project status and lack of insight into project artifacts can lead to last-minute surprises that impact the schedule and frustrate end users.

  • A shared platform for all project artifacts breaks down information silos within the team
  • Flexible reporting and executive dashboards give every user the insight they need, in a concise and relevant format
  • Real-time project metrics build confidence in the release schedule, and provide early visibility into potential schedule misses

Late Cycle Rework

Change requests and defects found late in the development cycle increase the risk of missed deadlines and product delays.

  • Integrated traceability between requirements, test cases, defects, and code ensures that changes anywhere in the project are immediately propagated to affected team members
  • Workflow and process automation rules ensure that nothing falls through the cracks
  • Real-time impact analysis improves the understanding of upstream/downstream changes and reduces the risk of accepting late-cycle changes

Manual and Inconsistent Processes

Manual and isolated processes are a common cause of inconsistent results, and are often the primary cause of a team's inability to reproduce past successes.

  • Automated workflow and escalation rules provide consistent enforcement of known best practices across projects and teams, so past mistakes aren't repeated
  • Role-based security provides safe and consistent access to necessary information for every user
  • Integrated requirements management enables more complete requirements capture and helps close the requirements feedback loop between end users and the business

Distributed Teams

Coordination and communication are key challenges in optimizing the performance of distributed, global teams.

  • A shared platform for all project artifacts breaks down information silos within the team
  • Automated workflow and escalation rules provide consistent enforcement of known best practices across projects and teams, so past mistakes aren't repeated
  • A single source of truth, from requirements through code, improves team collaboration and reduces the risk of miscommunication
