Rational® Software Architect V9.1.1 introduces new support for requirement management integration with Design Manager. The integration provides capabilities to import the requirements from tools like Rational Software Architect DOORS® Next Generation. Rational Software Architect provides a Requirements Browser built into Eclipse which has capabilities to explore the requirements artifacts from DOORS Next Generation. The Requirements Browser enables drag and drop of requirements onto the modeling canvas and creates links between the design and requirement management artifacts. The models with links to requirement management artifacts can then be published onto Design Manager for collaboration and reviews with the extended team members.

Rational Software Architect now integrates with DOORS Next Generation, helping organizations to link their design and requirements management artifacts onto a modeling canvas.
Users can explore the requirements artifacts directly from Rational Software Architect Requirements Explorer, and drag and drop requirements onto the design artifacts to create traceability links.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
