stpsoft Pioneers Requirements Storyboarding for Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Team System
Wednesday 13 September 2006

Visualise requirements for Team System projects, generate reader friendly specifications and test scripts, and facilitate team collaboration and progress visibility

Surrey, UK - 25 September 2006 - stpsoft, the UK based software requirements company, today announced the immediate availability of the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System edition of its popular stpBA Storyboarding product, designed to facilitate the communication and validation of requirements in Team System projects based on agile or iterative methodologies.

stpBA Storyboarding already serves as a valuable productivity tool for analysts, helping them provide visual representations of requirements that are key in making development faster and better able to meet user's requirements. The move to support Team System broadens the visibility of storyboarding and facilitates collaboration.

Prices start at $850 for a single user license or $355 as an upgrade for existing stpBA Storyboarding users. "This is the first product that provides requirements based storyboarding and specification seamlessly within the Team System environment. Aside from the big picture of linking stakeholders more effectively to application development, user interface storyboarding can reduce requirements creep and rework far below industry averages creating a compelling ROI," comments Badr Khan, Projects Director of stpsoft

"Although many of our stpBA Storyboarding customers have found the standardisation of key documents invaluable, their analysts are still required to ensure that the most up to date documentation is being used downstream in the development process." Khan continues, "The key driver for integration with VSTS was team collaboration. VSTS provides a robust collaboration platform, ensuring that developers are working with the most up to date information, as well as improving requirements based progress visibility for the project manager." concludes Khan.

John Allwright, Head of VSTS at Microsoft UK added, "This is an important addition to the tools available to our development community, since it improves the quality of the relationship between users and developers of business applications."
