Easy Requirement Traceability with StoryWise

How Traceability works?

In short, many projects, especially management want to implement it, but few claimed success (we haven't heard of single case) due to complex and hard to maintain approaches. StoryWise with TestWise will provide a solution as easy as it can be, yet maintainable and practically useful. StoryWise is Free!

Zhimin Zhan, Creator of TestWise and StoryWise, delivered a presentation ("StoryWise + TestWise = Effortless Requirements Traceability in Automated Testing") and demonstrated at 3rd TianJin International Conference on Software Testing, slides and video can be found here.
