QSM Associates introduces new software life cycle management offering

Comprises five elements - Control, Estimate, DataManager, Metrics, and MasterPlan

By CBR Staff Writer

QSM Associates, a provider of software lifecycle management suite, has introduced Software Lifecycle Management (SLIM) suite 8.0.

The SLIM suite 8.0 features are aimed at the Agile software development market; enhanced integration with IBM’s Rational Portfolio Manager; and updated project productivity trends information.

The new offering is designed to enable commercial and government enterprises to use SLIM in three stages including: estimating the cost and schedule for new projects; benchmarking completed projects against others; and measuring and controlling ‘in-flight’ projects to prevent overruns.

The company said that the SLIM suite 8.0 comprises five elements, which can be used individually or in the integrated suite: Control, Estimate, DataManager, Metrics, and MasterPlan.

In addition, the SLIM Suite elements are compatible with Microsoft’s Access open architecture, and allow seamless interfaces to any ODBC-compliant tool, and can also export to and import from the latest version of MS Project, including multi-level Work Breakdown Structure files.

QSM Associates Massachusetts managing partner Michael Mah said the Agile-specific framework is the result of requests from IT and engineering organisations across all industries.

"Customers who are just starting to ‘get Agile’ are finding that SLIM can apply an unprecedented level of rigor, accuracy and predictability to both the art and science of software development metrics," Mah said.
