ONLY DO WHAT MATTERS
BUSINESS AGILITY MEANS EMBRACING PROJECT VARIANCE
Stages contains a rules-based tailoring capability that can

Put the process to work
PROCESSES NEED TO BE CONSISTENTLY EXECUTED ACROSS THE TOOL LANDSCAPE
Stages integrates with most common ALM, PLM, and document management tools:
- Orchestrate Atlassian Jira and IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (Team Concert) to dynamically generate tasks and automate workflows based on the process for each project or team.
- Manage work products, checklists, and templates in MS SharePoint, Apache SVN, and PTC Integrity.
- Generate project plan templates for MS Project and many other systems.
- See status of project work products and engineering data from other repositories.
Your teams will find the process significantly more useful and easier to follow.
Reduce risk of non-compliance
CRITICAL PRODUCTS ARE DEVELOPED AND OPERATED IN REGULATED ENVIRONMENTS
Stages provides a powerful capability to map regulatory and industry standard requirements onto your processes:
- Maintain traceability and detect gaps in your processes.
- Receive compliance warnings when tailoring your processes.
- Generate compliance evidence including project work products.
- See the compliance status across the whole organization.
Manage compliance with regulations and drastically reduce the efforts of audits and assessments.
