Business needs and user requirements provide the business direction for what to develop and why. In addition to those goals and objectives, one may also need to comply with industry regulations and standards. It is much easier to design software solutions that meet the customer's needs and are compliant with industry standards if: one have visibility of those customer requirements in the development environment; one can create traceable links between requirements and the work items; and the get automatic notification of requirements changes that could impact those linked work items. This podcast talks about how to achieve a high level of awareness and integration using IBM Rational DOORS and Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.
