Poorly documented requirements are a well known source of frustration leading to unnecessary rework and defects. DreamCatcher is a visual, easy to use and collaborative tool for capturing accurate and clear software requirements. It can help bring the business and development teams on the same page and accelerate your speed to market
DreamCatcher’s extensive features will help you capture clear and accurate Software Requirements
Great product requirements start with great product roadmaps. Capture feature level product roadmaps very easily using visual tools. Drag and drop to change timeline. DreamCatcher can visually group features by theme, component, status or priority. It can also generate detailed quarterly status reports in a snap. Export your roadmaps to presentation ready PowerPoint slides or Images. Capacity planning done visually for you.
Define acceptance criteria for your user stories using clear business requirements (using GIVEN, WHEN, THEN syntax). You can group them into distinct groups, and create a hierarchy if you like. Having accurate acceptance criteria associated with your UI requirements is a critical part of capturing clear and accurate software requirements. They provide a concise way for your developers to code and testers to test the user stories.
Engaging Audio-Video Playback of User Stories
Get your remote team members all on the same page with the engaging audio-video playback of User Stories. It can help your team achieve a much superior understanding of the requirements from an end-user perspective.
Once you have captured accurate software requirements, DreamCatcher can then automatically estimate and create tasks based on the scope of requirements. You can then manage the user stories and tasks visually, side-by-side with the software requirements, improving the context and visibility. If you are using another tool for managing Agile stories and tasks such as JIRA, you can keep doing that as DreamCatcher integrates seamlessly with them.
DreamCatcher empowers you to capture visual requirements for Integration Points and Interfaces (much better than using Excel and Word documents!). You can also capture integration design patterns visually, and capture data field requirements for interfaces. The best part is, DreamCatcher can then auto-generate detailed integration design documents for you!
Having clear and accurate requirements is absolutely essential to developing quality software. Your software testing team members will appreciate that. But beyond that, DreamCatcher can also automatically generate functional test cases and automation test code from the requirements! This will save your test teams valuable time so that they can focus on what matters. You can also manage defects directly in DreamCatcher, side-by-side with the requirements, improving the visibility and clarity of the defects.
Save Valuable Time through Automation
Automate manual, low value tasks using DreamCatcher, so that your teams can focus on the higher value tasks. DreamCatcher will automatically generate key artifacts for you such as User Guides, Requirements Documents, and Design Documents. It will also generate functional test cases and test automation scripts, saving valuable time for your test teams. It can even generate UI code for developers.
