This is a great suite for managing the application development life cycle. Very competitive in features and functions. This suite is just as good, if not better than IBM's or HP's suites. I've now worked with all three and can easily recommend this for all but the most complex and complicated organizations. I'm using the SaaS version and it works great. Gartner positions this in the niche-players section of its magic quadrant when it should be in the Leaders section, far above and to the right of the others!

A recent article published by our partner OAT Solutions in the popular DevMedia magazine discusses strategies and best practices for structuring and managing agile programs for success. Using our SpiraTeam ALM system as the technology solution, it describes how you can use SpiraTeam to deliver on the promise of the agile manifesto. OAT Solutions chose SpiraTeam for its simplicity, ease of use and breadth of capability.
As you evaluate SpiraTeam for your software development and testing needs, please use:
For the project manager, it provides the ability to create and manage the initial high level scope of the project - the features, requirements and user stories. It also provides a complete set of software test management features so that once the requirements have been developed, the technical team can begin to develop a high level release schedule and the associated test plan. This is where the requirements are mapped to the test cases so that the testing team can validate the functionality works as expected, and the project manager can ensure there is complete requirements test coverage.
Once the project is underway, the combined business and technical team work together to develop the iteration/sprint plan for the releases, break up the features into discrete stories and tasks and begin assigning the items to the individual iterations. Meanwhile, the quality assurance team can assign sets of test cases to be executed. Any deviations from expected behavior can then be recorded as defects and managed in the defect tracking module.
