Jan Adrian Links in DNG July 2024

In the world of IBM DOORS Next, links are more than just connections—they're the backbone of effective requirements management

These links enable traceability, ensuring every requirement is tracked throughout the lifecycle, from conception to delivery. By linking artifacts, teams can maintain alignment, validate compliance, and streamline their development process. 

Understanding and utilizing these links effectively can make a significant difference in project success, enhancing collaboration and improving overall project visibility. 

Register now for our webinar on July 9th at 3:30 pm CET where we will dive into topics like:

  • Creating Effective Links
  • Linking by LBFA (Link By Frame Attribute)
  • Ensuring Link Validity
  • Advanced Link Filtering Techniques
  • Optimal Link Display Practices
  • Dos and Don'ts of LinkingLinking by View 
  • Utilizing Links in RELM (Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager)
  • Comprehensive Link Reporting
  • Overview of Existing Link Types

At Softacus, we excel in providing migration services from IBM DOORS to IBM DOORS Next Generation, ensuring a smooth and seamless transition for our clients.

Whether you're contemplating migrating from DOORS Classic to DOORS Next or simply seeking to explore the benefits of the latter, our upcoming webinar is for you.

Key topics that will be discussed:

  • Custom link types usage for migrated links - link types can be defined based on source and target object's module path in DOORS Classic or DOORS Next
  • Creation of nested Global Configurations structure based on created during migration DOORS Next streams and baselines
  • Flexible definition of artifact types based either on a dedicated enumeration attribute or conditions built on queries for more attributes

IBM Migrator Jan 1

As operations expand and projects grow in complexity, previously implemented information system sooner or later will require migration to a new platform. Although you may have successfully been using IBM DOORS in your engineering projects for a long time, new projects may need requirements management capabilities that are supported by IBM DOORS Next only.

To respond to the demand for sophisticated and advanced requirements management capabilities in current and future projects, DOORS Next was designed with an entirely new leading-edge architecture. Its scalability, support for Global Configuration Management, variants management and reuse are a game changer in reducing cost and time to market.

Now, the foundation for a successful migration process with a low risk for unpleasant surprises requires thorough planning and a good understanding of your current requirements meta structure.

Softacus has developed migration toolkits that help ensure a smooths transition process.

Join Jan Jancar, Solution Director and CEO of Softacus, on 30.05.2024 when he will delve into IBM DOORS and IBM DOORS Next solutions, focusing on:

  • Reasons for migration / motivations behind migration and when is the perfect time to migrate
  • Navigating the migration process: challenges and opportunities
  • Migration targets based on object types (requirements, norms, validation, work items)
  • Specific handling: data cleanup; target model; unsupported DOORS data
  • Project effort estimation
  • Tips and tricks
  • Softacus capabilities to make migration smoother and/or possible
  • Licensing
