InfoTech Consulting and Geensys in distribution partnership for Reqtify in Nordic region
Geensys, the specialist provider of embedded development tools, value-added embedded engineering and consulting services, and embedded software IP, has appointed InfoTech Consulting as its Nordic region distribution partner for Reqtify, its flagship tool for the automated management of embedded requirements capture, traceability and impact analysis throughout the hardware and software development lifecycle.
In addition to providing in-depth sales and support services in the Nordic region for Reqtify, InfoTech Consulting will also draw on its extensive requirements management expertise to provide specialist consulting services to ensure the value-added deployment of Reqtify in real project environments and its seamless integration with customers’ existing tool chains.
“This is more than just a distribution agreement with Geensys, it is a partnership for the Nordic market,” said Anders Norberg, General Manager of InfoTech Consulting. “Requirements-based engineering as a whole is moving towards adoption of the kind of intelligent and pervasive technology that Reqtify delivers. It is one of the most agile requirements management tools on the market and we are very enthusiastic about the opportunity to open up the Nordic market to the benefits and value Reqtify can deliver.”
Reqtify is the most widely deployed solution for addressing requirements capture, traceability and impact analysis in demanding, safety-critical domains such as the aerospace and defence, railway transportation, automotive and medical instrumentation industries. It enables automatic and customisable document generation as evidence that a product meets certification and/or quality constraint requirements at all times throughout the development cycle. Launched recently, Reqtify 3.1 includes significant new, user-requested features and usability enhancements, third-party interface additions and improvements, and a new RIF import/export gateway.
Thanks to its impact analysis and requirements coverage capabilities, Reqtify gives all project stakeholders a thorough insight into the effort required to complete each project task (specification, design, V&V activities, integration) and for each product release. It gives a unique and global view of the overall project status enabling project leaders and quality managers to perform risk analyses and to prove compliance with project requirements and constraints. With Reqtify, engineers can continue to use their existing working environments to fulfill traceability objectives. Verification engineers can link verification plans and results to both system and technical requirements assessments to prove that all requirements have been properly verified. Designers and coders can easily add traceability data within their authoring tools or directly in the code itself using their favourite IDE. This way, everyone stays in their “comfort zone” with Reqtify acting as a “data broker” and monitoring the overall coherence against project objectives. As a consequence, visibility of project metrics and final project quality are drastically improved.
“With this distribution partnership with InfoTech Consulting, our customers will not only benefit from localised support on Reqtify but also from the advanced services on requirements management that InfoTech is uniquely able to provide in the Nordic region,” added Olivier d’Arros, International & OEM Business Unit Manager for Geensys. “The agreement also further extends the global reach of Geensys and Reqtify which we are achieving through the establishment of a variety of direct offices, OEM arrangements and distribution agreements.”
