Blueprint Delivers Industry First with New Patented BlueDocs Technology

Date 2013/9/17 4:49:02 | Topic: Product News

Blueprint, the leading provider of enterprise Requirements Definition and Management (RDM) software, today launched BlueDocs, a patented new technology and industry first that creates an automated way for organizations to establish a central system of record for all requirements information by efficiently converting rich requirements content from Microsoft(R) Word documents directly into Blueprint's enterprise-class RDM platform. The company also announced the latest release of its requirements software, Blueprint v5.3, which includes more than 20 enhancements and expanded enterprise-class administration features.
Using BlueDocs, enterprises can import, validate and manage information such as requirements for completed projects and for projects "in-flight"; any legacy information for application modernization projects; as well as policies and compliance regulations, all from within a unified, secure, central repository.

"Blueprint has once again removed a substantial barrier to adoption for organizations that want a robust requirements definition and management solution but are limited by antiquated processes and reliance on outdated disparate documents," says Ray Payette, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations at Blueprint. "BlueDocs gives enterprises an automated way to finally create one "version of the truth" for all their requirements records, delivering greater efficiency, productivity, continuity and security, not to mention a strategic advantage."

BlueDocs imports requirements from all Word documents into one central repository with minimal manual intervention. Imported requirements may include: hierarchy; custom properties; custom artifact types; relationships; attachments; images; and even comments embedded in Word documents.

Blueprint v5.3 Features Advanced Enterprise Administration Capabilities

The latest release of Blueprint's RDM solution, Blueprint v5.3, provides advanced enterprise-class administration capabilities ideally suited to large, global multinational companies that have hundreds of users, including contractors, working on multiple projects at any given time. Blueprint v5.3 allows corporate administrator roles to be defined with very fine-grained privileges for managing different aspects of a Blueprint instance, enabling specific privileges to be granted or denied based on business needs.
