About Development Management

Development management (shown here in light blue) is implemented by Serena Development Manager. Development Manager enables you to orchestrate and monitor your key software development efforts, tracking source code changes and approvals through a central workflow engine. Development Manager uses Serena Business Manager (SBM) to coordinate events across your systems using Web services, integrating application project definition, source code management, test management, and release approvals. Track and report on development progress using the included dashboard solution, providing comprehensive decision-making support to managers and directors who need the latest information at all times on key performance indicators (KPIs).

For details on the Requirements Management domain, please see Chapter 5, "Development Management Domain Model" on page 27. For more on KPIs, please see Chapter 8, "Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Domain Model" on page 55.
