Objectiver editions

Objectiver V3  is provided as a comprehensive requirements engineering solution covering needs of analysts at different levels of complexity. Three editions are available to meet your specific needs.

  • Standard edition. The Standard Edition is targeted to small- and medium-scale requirements engineering projects involving a single analyst and a few stakeholders.
  • Professional edition. The Professional Edition is targeted to medium-scale requirements engineering projects involving a single analyst and many stakeholders. The Professional Edition adds productivity, quality control and reusability to the Standard Edition.
  • Review edition. This companion Objectiver edition is dedicated to reviewing activites. The cost-effective review edition is targeted to stakeholders to support their reviewing efforts. With this edition they can browse through the model and annotate it without modifying its content otherwise. Annotations can later be imported in the original model using the Professional Edition.
