IBM Rational RequisitePro is leveraged as the Requirements Repository as well as the sole source for tracking User Stories and related Artifacts. Business Partners enter the user stories into the system, and then the are cataloged and go through our Agile Sprints and track through Quality Assurance. This allows everyone to have a real time view of requirements and how items are moving to production.
- Flexibility to customize the repository to meet the needs of your process and business unity
- Compatibility with Microsoft Office tools
- Flexible reporting capability to extract data and report in Excel
- Ability to tie requirements and break them do to trace requirements to implementation
- Performance can be an issue. Make certain the server is sized properly
- There is a large difference in capability of the Thick Client Version compared with the web based version. Make certain each job function has proper access to be able to do what is required of them.
- Learning curve is not too steep, but would suggest having someone with experience setup the repository. Highly suggest getting a contractor to assist to get the repository up and running.

Better for larger teams, it doesn't provide the value as the cost may not have the ROI. You may want to look at some other tools that are available in the cloud to manage requirements. Due to the fact that the tool has the capability for customization, it is imperative that in large teams that the tool is used in a consistent manner.

We have many projects simultaneously. Project management is vital in our industry, and within this, we want to have well-drawn artifacts. From the conception stage, it is important to evolve the software requirements, and that is where RequisitePro becomes important in the management of the project and the team in terms of the visibility of documents.
- Traceability of artifacts, coom requirements, use cases, functionalities, etc.
- Document management and easely MS Office integration
- IBM Rational products integration
- Learning curve, especially if you're not familiar with IBM Rational tools
- Payment product
- SVN Integration

If you are familiar with IBM Rational Suite products, RequisitePro will add up due to the synergy between other components. Beyond that, if your business is not structured to an adequate development methodology or lacks the degree of maturity or necessary resources, probably RequisitePro does not add much value. If you work with developers in the requirements analysis, they probably prefer to use an SVN repository.
