LDRA Integrates with IBM Rational DOORS

LDRA has announced that its LDRA tool suite is now integrated with the IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation requirements management tool. DOORS Next Generation equips teams with requirements definition and management capabilities, a work item system for task management and planning, and a reporting system. The LDRA tool suite integration brings software analysis and verification suite into this open collaboration platform supporting IoT application development.

The integrated LDRA tool suite and IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation solution significantly reduces the design time and development costs of safety- and security-critical systems for the IoT including automotive, medical device, industrial control, energy, and aerospace and defense applications. This solution enables embedded software and IoT systems developers to achieve full lifecycle traceability in a proven Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) environment. For those environments requiring software qualification or certification, this integration provides the transparency and audit trail required for quality and regulatory review.

Key features and benefits of the integration include:
* OSLC integration for easily accessing and linking DOORS Next Generation requirements and test cases
* First-of-its kind functionality for tracing requirements to source code and test vectors, procedures, and results
* Traceability for facilitating qualification/certification
* Automated analysis and testing for reducing cost of qualification/certification
