Modern Requirements (formerly eDev Tech) is a requirements lifecycle solutions company. It is dedicated to helping clients effectively define, manage and collaborate on requirements, while continuously managing projects throughout their life, reducing time to market and improving project quality. By providing the most comprehensive and insightful software requirements platform in the market, Modern Requirements’ mission is to successfully optimize client product and system development lifecycles.

As a general rule, software development projects run over time and over budget. This is caused by inherent miscommunication between diverse groups working together to create an application. Ineffective methods for translating and converging business needs with IT needs, quickly and efficiently, play a role as well.

Modern Requirements enables its clients to concentrate on developing more applications that further assist business operations, by improving productivity, reducing development time, maintaining project budgets and ensuring a rich user experience.

Founded in 1999, with its headquarters in Toronto, Canada, Modern Requirements has decades of requirements development expertise. It prides itself in deeply understanding each client’s product development environment, and being uncommonly responsive to addressing clients’ unique challenges. Modern Requirements supports clients worldwide, in their respective time zones, from its North American and Asian offices, as well as through its network of global partners.

In the early days, while providing application development services to its clients, Modern Requirements’ founder, Asif Sharif, recognized a gap in the common understanding of requirements among project stakeholders. Asif’s recognition eventually laid the foundation for the creation of a requirements tool. The idea behind the tool was to develop a software platform that works as a virtual bridge between IT teams and industry experts. Modern Requirements released its first requirements platform, inteGREAT Studio, in 2006. In 2010, the company established a deep partnership with Microsoft. Modern Requirements’ solutions continue to fill the gap in understanding of requirements among project stakeholders, and help them collaborate on textual and visual requirements throughout the requirements lifecycle. The company is always mindful of developing Modern Requirements4TFS based on the various standards affecting industry players.

Modern Requirements’ tools are continually ranked at the top Seilevel’s requirements tool studies, which are the most comprehensive in the industry. It has also been cited as a top requirements platform by Forrester Research, and has been favorably mentioned on numerous occasions by Gartner and other top analyst firms.
