Agile Requirements Designer makes the world’s best companies better.

Design and engineer better requirements.

Get end-to-end support for requirements engineering, test case optimization, test design automation, in-sprint testing and more. Employ a single point of reference for all test and development efforts. It’s testing at the speed of agile that’s easily scalable and manageable.

Visually define requirements.

Unlike other software testing tools, Agile Requirements Designer (formerly CA Agile Requirements Designer) makes requirements clear and unambiguous, with diagrams that represent requirements as mathematically precise visual flows—and add accuracy to requirements engineering.

Automate test design.

Use Agile Requirements Designer’s test design automation capabilities to achieve true test-driven development. You’ll realize maximum test coverage with minimum test cases and auto-generate test data as test cases are created.

Shorten development cycles by 30%.

Quickly generate the smallest number of test cases for maximum coverage. Easily import test cases, remove duplicates and distribute and allocate optimized test cases in existing tools such as Rally Software® (formerly CA Agile Central), HPE ALM, JIRA and more.

Leverage existing work.

Store, share and reuse test cases and other test assets from a central library linked to the right data and expected results. It’s smart and efficient test design automation that lets teams quickly recreate and execute tests to fully test systems as they evolve.

Employ model-based testing.

Agile Requirements Designer applies model-based testing approaches to simplify requirements engineering and automate the design, development and maintenance of executable test cases. All while maintaining requirement traceability through the entire development and testing lifecycle.

In the first year, we saw about a 70% reduction in our script creation time

It has been really effective, and it has actually changed our entire process from script-based to model-based. We went from five days per sprint to one day, one to one and a half days per sprint in the script creation.
