Blueprint announces customer success case study and speaking engagement with leading communication provider PAETEC


Changing The Economics of Software Development

Toronto, Canada – Blueprint Software Systems Inc. (“Blueprint”), the leader in requirements definition and management software, today announced a new customer success case study and speaking engagement at BA World in Boston on October 25th at 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM ET.

Improved software requirements are a key ingredient for improved software projects. At PAETEC, improving software requirements means: keeping key stakeholders involved by telling the story of the requirements from multiple viewpoints; connecting all of the different requirements together in a cohesive story; and continuous validation through live simulation and review. By using Blueprint’s Requirements Center™, PAETEC is able to deliver on each of these objectives. As a result, PAETEC has reduced project rework, cut costs, and has improved the overall alignment between the business stakeholders and IT providers.

“Blueprint Requirements Center is an intuitive, cost-effective solution that has streamlined our development process and ensures that our staff’s time is used as efficiently as possible. It gives our customers the confidence that we are going to build exactly what they want … the first time,” commented
Michael Kowaleski, Director, Software Engineering, PAETEC.

With this integrated approach to requirements, the PAETEC team was able to hit project milestones and decrease project costs stemming from insufficient and incomplete requirements, and causing unnecessary project rework. Stakeholder alignment and buy-in dramatically increased as they became more engaged due to the highly visual and efficient nature of the review sessions, in contrast to the traditionally difficult word document review sessions. There is an increased confidence in project success and the relationship between business and IT stakeholders has improved.

PAETEC, a Blueprint customer for 3 years now, has expanded the use of Requirements Center to all software development teams on all software projects. “Blueprint has empowered our system and business analysts to capture all facets of a project, including its requirements, use cases, UI screens and traceability, in one easily accessible location. Previously, these artifacts were in multiple documents and formats which sometimes caused miscommunication and delays in the project. Requirements Center has not only proven valuable to the Development and Quality Assurance teams, but ultimately has paid dividends for our stakeholders and internal customers,” commented Jennifer Ignizio, PAETEC Systems Analyst.

“PAETEC is a great example of a business committed to improving the economics of their software development process,” commented David Nyland, CEO of Blueprint. “Whilst the savings from dramatically reduced project rework is significant, improved business and IT stakeholder confidence and relationships is priceless. At the end of the day, these improvements translate directly into more business application projects being delivered into production, reduced project backlog, and improved business performance.”
