We have some big news to share for 2018!
Based on extensive feedback and discussions with our customers during the user summits and consultations with our partners, we are making some changes to our product lineup next year. The big news is that we will be retiring our existing "SpiraPlan" feature set, and launching a new SpiraPlan edition of our Spira ALM platform that will cater to the needs of programs, portfolios, and enterprises.
Our plan for next year is to focus our three "editions" of the Spira platform on three different customer needs:
SpiraTest will remain the premier tool for managing the testing and quality assurance activities of a project team. When you have to manage a team of testers, run an outsourced QA team, provide testing services, manage a globally distributed test lab in real time, SpiraTest is the tool for you. It will continue to have requirements management, test case management and issue tracking in a single unified product with unparalleled traceability and reporting.
When you need to manage all aspects of a software project (planning, scoping, estimation, development, testing, management, DevOps, support and maintenance) you need our SpiraTeam application lifecycle management system. SpiraTeam includes all of the functionality included within SpiraTest, and in addition, includes the ability to manage your software development activities (source code, tasks, builds, revisions), plan and manage complex software projects, and provides rich collaboration tools to ensure your team is working in sync.
Our focus for 2018 is adding world-class support for the following key business needs:
To that end, we will be retiring the existing SpiraPlan product (don't worry if you use SpiraPlan, we'll upgrade you to SpiraTeam at no cost) and adding these new features in a revamped SpiraPlan product that contains all of the functionality of SpiraTeam, plus these new program and enterprise planning features:
