Borland has introduced a suite of integrated tools aimed at providing IT departments with a way to manage projects more effectively using role-based collaboration.
The product, called Borland Core SDP (Software Delivery Platform), is the foundation of the company’s Software Delivery Optimisation strategy, providing an application lifecycle management environment.
Borland said SDP offers integrated tools to support various job functions within an IT project such as business analyst, architect, develop and tester. The SDP offers users a role-based software delivery platform that increases an organisation’s visibility and control over all phases of the software delivery process, Borland claimed.
To support these project roles, Borland has provided a number of integrated products:
- Core::Analyst translates business objectives into functional software requirements
- Core::Architect is used to keep specifications, models and code in synchronisation throughout the application lifecycle
- Core::Developer provides project specifications, change requests and test cases
- Core::Tester is used during the quality assurance step in a software project to ensure the applications being developed achieve functional compliance and quality goals by linking testing teams with defect tracking and requirements management.
