Helix RM Overview

What is Helix RM?

Helix RM is a software requirements management tool that sits within Perforce's Development Lifecycle Management product, the modular Helix ALM suite. Available alongside the fully integrated Helix IM (Issue Management) and TCM (Test Case Management) modules, Helix RM can also be deployed standalone on 12-month license subscriptions, both on-premise or within the cloud. Helix RM centralizes requirements, supporting a more efficient method of gathering and sharing requirements and managing them within one place. Claiming significant performance and operational benefits over the sole use of applications such as Microsoft Word or Excel, users are able to capture, review, check the approval of and view changes to requirements throughout the complete development lifecycle. The software also ensures everyone is working on the most recent versions, organizing requirements hierarchies in real time and also with the ability to reuse them to provide consistency without repeated validation. Marketing and business requirements can similarly be decomposed more easily, translating these into the necessary product / functional requirements and system specifications that can traditionally prove troublesome.

Helix RM provides strong traceability features, tracking requirements through all stages of the application lifecycle. The software achieves this via the creation of a "requirements traceability matrix" that links each requirement to other requirements, test cases, test results, source code etc. This supports users to instead focus on performing other actions such as impact analysis, an area where Helix RM helps by tracing every requirement to its associated development artifacts so any changes can be reflected, reviewed and approved to minimize risk. The software goes on to encourage collaborative sharing and communication within teams and stakeholders with features for making global, real time comments along with export options for distributing requirements documentation.
