AI in Requirements Management: Copilot4DevOps

Over the past two years, artificial intelligence has well and truly gone mainstream. After disrupting various other industries, AI requirements management tools are finally a reality. A big part of requirements management involves repeating the same tasks. Costly and repetitive tasks like these are one reason why only 35% of projects are successfully completed today.

To address this need, Modern Requirements has created “Copilot4DevOps,” an AI requirements management tool to maximize your employee productivity and efficiency. Your team can now delegate 80% of the work, leaving 20% for high level human decision-making. The net result is faster requirements authoring, sharper requirements analysis, and fewer errors.

Built on Modern Requirements’ powerful collaborative framework, you can draw on the relevant data and convert them into meaningful insights, summaries, and use cases. And because Modern Requirements is natively built into Azure DevOps, you can turn ADO into a comprehensive ALM solution with a powerful AI assistant. Here is how Copilot4DevOps works
