I’m extremely excited to tell you about a BA-community led project that I am involved with.
As some of you may be aware, I am a member of the team that runs Pragnalysis.com – a website that is dedicated to providing free templates and tools to the Business Analysis community.
The Pragnalysis team and I are excited to announce the Beta release of our latest project – a fully functioning, open source, requirements management tool. The tool will be completely free to use and re-distribute, and can be downloaded and used immediately:
You can download the ReqLine Requirements Management Tool now by visiting http://www.pragnalysis.com
Full details of the tool can be found on the website, however its features include:
- A common repository for all requirements
- Ability to maintain individual requirements, along with their status (draft/signed off)
- Ability to define requirements groups – releases, iterations etc
- Reporting functionality including various dashboard-reports and the ability to export a requirements catalogue
- Logging and monitoring of risks, issues, assumptions and dependencies
- An intuitive way to link requirements back to high-level goals and objectives, ensuring that stakeholders consider business value throughout the project
- Built in change-control and impact analysis functionality
- Project glossary
ReqLine is a requirements management tool designed for BAs by BAs, and we’ve combined the experience of a number of BA practitioners to create this first Beta release. The Beta version is a single user, single machine version – but it is anticipated that future versions would be multi-user and server based. It’s a project that I have been extremely excited about for some time, and it is great to see it come to fruition!
Please try the tool, and provide feedback directly to me or any other member the Pragnalysis team.

I look forward to hearing from you!
