LDRA Integration with IBM® Rational® DOORS® Next GenerationProvides Complete Embedded Software Lifecycle Requirements Traceability and Collaboration Solution

Wirral, U.K. – 9 March 2017 – LDRA, the leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, software code analysis, and test tools, today announced that its industry-leading 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 effectively brings the industry’s leading software analysis and verification suite into this open collaboration platform supporting critical 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

“Collaboration among disciplines and across time zones is becoming increasingly important for embedded systems developers as today’s disparate development organizations mandate increased efficiency,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director, LDRA. “The integration between the LDRA tool suite and the IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation platform brings unprecedented levels of efficiency to team-based software design and verification by providing a bidirectional workflow from requirements through to implementation. This bidirectional workflow and collaboration speeds up development and lowers overall development and verifications costs.” 

The LDRA tool suite integration with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation will be demonstrated at:

Embedded World, 14-16 March 2017, Nuremberg, Germany 

LDRA Booth: Hall 4A-531
