In the fast-paced world of software development, seamless collaboration and efficient project management are critical for success. However, for one company, a bi-directional integration issue had been plaguing their development process, causing frustration and hindering productivity. After a year of grappling with their existing toolset, they found themselves reverting to the old-fashioned method of spreadsheets to manage work item traceability across various software tools. Recognising the limitations of this manual approach, they knew they needed a long-term solution to address their pain points—traceability and compatibility.
In this case study, we explore how this company sought to overcome their challenges and discovered a powerful solution in Codebeamer ALM. Seeking a cost-conscious approach to ensure efficiency in development and compliance, especially for their medical device development process, the company sought a comprehensive solution to navigate the complexities of relevant medical regulations.
The company had an issue with its bi-directional integration. After a year of struggling with their toolset, they reverted to using spreadsheets to trace work items across their software tools. Using spreadsheets was a highly tedious manual process to maintain traceability, and they knew it wouldn’t work long-term. Their key pain points were traceability and compatibility. They wanted a cost-conscious approach to ensure efficiency in the development and compliance to support their medical device development process and comply with the relevant medical regulations.
To achieve their goal of having a fully featured, integrated digital system of record that captured the cascade of documentation needed for product development and regulatory submissions and facilitated the rituals and patterns that drive the product development cycle, Codebeamer ALM was implemented. The company found Codebeamer ALM easy to use and resulting in the user implementing the platform through a self-taught approach.
Codebeamer ALM has dramatically expanded at the company since its implementation. Today, almost everybody at the company uses the platform and is investigating what other processes it could support. The company is pleased with the investment and the results they have made from the investment.
