There is no company that can provide all of the technologies you need to manage the entire requirements lifecycle. It's clear that the larger the organization, the greater the likelihood that different teams will use different technologies and techniques across the development ecosystem. Add customers and partners into the mix, and you’ll soon face a smorgasbord of technologies. An orchestrated requirements strategy needs to intelligently figure out which tools contribute to the efficiency of the process, which can be replaced, and how they can all work together in harmony.

Since the creation of the Agile Manifesto, many development teams have embraced the guidelines of agile. By focusing on the customer and eliminating wasted development effort, developers have seen dramatic improvements in their software development – greater visibility and collaboration, lower risk, faster delivery of builds, and increased adaptability.

But, even if your development team has gone agile, it is likely that other internal development teams or partners that you work with have not completely left behind the “old school” methods. To further complicate matters, development teams are generally not purely agile or purely waterfall. Almost 75% of development organizations deliberately mix agile and other methodologies. Faced with this hybrid landscape, many organizations are back where they were ten years ago, struggling to deliver applications that customers really want and trying to eliminate waste.

Orchestrating your requirements process and technologies doesn’t happen overnight. However, for organizations to successfully manage the entire requirements lifecycle, there are some common success factors that will help them get there faster. This slideshow highlights six strategies identified by Serena Software that you can use to orchestrate your requirements process.
