Requirements quality is tangible. It is possible to look at the specific characteristics of requirements documentation and determine if it is sufficiently clear, accurate and complete to lead to a successful project. Since flawed requirements trigger about 70% of all project failures,1 this paper will present some hard and fast rules for looking at requirements documents, in any format, and being able to determine if they are reasonably well constructed. It will outline the key points to look for in a requirements document, and why this can save a company hundreds of thousands of dollars. Finally, it will offer five straightforward questions to address when evaluating requirements quality. The paper is not intended to be a full audit of requirements, but rather act as a guide and checklist for evaluation.

Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit

Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how best practices for project management can assist organizations in experiencing all the benefits of agile development while continuing to maintain rigorous standards essential for successful delivery of safety-critical systems.

Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.
