The more insight you can get into project and system requirements in the planning phase, the easier it is to accurately estimate cost and scheduling. Cadence is a web-based early planning tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automate requirements analysis, produce high-level concepts, and inform total lifecycle estimates. By providing a picture of the desired solution during the proposal or requirements phase, our customers gain deeper insight at the start of a project, allowing for more efficient and predictable technology decisions.

SOFTWARE COST ESTIMATES MADE EASIER

Estimating the cost and commitment levels of new software investments can be a challenge. While accurate estimates can save time and money, inaccuracies and be costly and frustrating. Without detailed insight into the products, services, and market trends driving your IT needs, decision makers often struggle to find a solution that works effectively across their entire organization.

While Function Point Analysis ensures you are informed with accurate and defensible information, it can be a tedious and time-consuming process. Cadence uses AI to speed up the process, analyzing thousands of requirements and user stories within seconds. This helps you get fast, accurate project estimates to create objective, quantifiable, data-based cost estimates from the start.

ANALYZE REQUIREMENTS UP TO 125X FASTER

Cadence decreases the time spent analyzing new software requirements and reduces the risks associated with human error and subjectivity.

High-level AI insights and intelligent elaboration to accurately estimate software size and streamline requirements development.

Natural language processing (NLP) and a robust rules engine to reduce the time it takes to inspect and plan projects.

Keep pace with Agile projects and adjust estimates as you go by maintaining counts down to the requirement or user story.

AUTOMATED FUNCTIONAL SIZE MEASUREMENT (FSM)

Cadence uses AI to calculate function points from project requirements to automate software measurement at the proposal or requirements phase. This early insight helps analysts identify data and transactional functions at the click of a button.

ADVANCED DISCOVERY AND ESTIMATION

Our Cadence tool automatically identifies the most common actions, objects, and relationships based on each requirements set. Dive deeper with a click to inspect items that have been flagged for review using advanced searching, tagging, filtering, and grouping capabilities.

FASTER REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS

Eliminate the tedious, time-consuming process of manually extracting requirements. Cadence lets you parse through hundreds — or thousands— of requirements in only seconds, gauging which are duplicate, vague, ambiguous, or just poorly written.

PROVEN FLEXIBILITY AND SECURITY

Cadence is an AWS-ready software tool that can be hosted behind your firewall or accessed directly from the cloud. Either option incorporates cyber security and access control best practices to ensure any sensitive information you upload is protected and stored in a safe environment.
