PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- Jama Software, a company changing the way products are conceived, built and delivered to market, today makes generally available Jama Contour 3.6 to eliminate inefficiencies, rework and duplication of effort in product-development processes. Contour introduces an intelligent, enterprise-wide system to reuse the requirements and other product details that are the same across multiple products.
"Product development is broken within the enterprise and is ripe for reinvention," said Eric Winquist, CEO, Jama Software. "With Contour's enterprise reuse capabilities, organizations can tap into the in-house knowledge they've built over the course of their business. Requirements and the intellectual property around them become real strategic assets."
Improving requirements is increasingly a strategic imperative. "When asked which among several possible initiatives would improve application development the most, teams put 'improvements of requirements practices' at the top of the list, by a significant margin," writes Tom Grant, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. in his December 2011 research report, "High-Value Requirements Are Changing App Dev and Delivery."
