Customers consistently tell us how easy Polarion is to use, and how readily it is accepted by stakeholders from requirements engineers to testers to software developers. But what if you’re faced with the task of evaluating a new solution like Polarion. There’s a lot in it. How long will it take to grasp the basics? Where do you start?

Since most people come to Polarion looking for a Requirements Management solution, we decided to to start with that. We’ve created a new online short course designed to impart the essentials of Requirements Management with Polarion ALM… in about 15 minutes.

Come back as often as you like, and stay as long as you like. Later, feel free to look around the DrivePilot and eLibrary demo projects. Maybe even create a project or two of your own. (Tip: the short course and demo projects are available on our Polarion ALM test driver server too.)
