The purpose of this article is to make an overview of options you have when you have a need for reuse of artifacts like requirements, specifications, contracts or event full lifecycle management projects in IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management Platform (IBM Jazz).

This article will be improved several times but the intention is not to describe everything since this is done in the consulting engagement.

IBM DOORS (Classic) was and is a leading requirement management tool for most industries with complex systems. Nowadays, however, customers require many more things from a requirement tool that could not be addressed by DOORS which is using robust and reliable but 25-year-old architecture. Therefore, ten years ago IBM decided to develop DOORS Next Generation which is running on a modern Jazz Platform and together with Rational Team Concert and Rational Quality Manager can satisfy very demanding customer needs as well.
For customers interested in taking advantage of the IBM Jazz Platform, Softacus provides services to migrate from IBM DOORS to IBM DOORS Next Generation.
