“We are focused on solving one of the hardest problems in business today, which is the communication gaps that companies face between the strategy and execution of complex projects,” explained Eric Winquist, CEO of Jama Software. “With Contour 3.5, we continue to make it easier for teams to deliver higher quality and faster time to market by uniting people around a shared vision and helping them stay aligned as they iterate and execute on the requirements of their projects.”

How Jama Contour Works

Contour tracks the ongoing flow and activity stream of feedback, decisions and changes to the requirements and other important details of a project that naturally occur during the development process. Delivered through a flexible and easy-to-use Web application, Contour provides all of the core functionality expected for requirements management – including traceability, test management, change management, diagramming, re-use, workflow and reporting – but without the painful overhead and expensive learning curves of traditional enterprise software. Contour’s unique value is in its Review Center feature that creates real-time, actionable collaboration across all stakeholders – from executive sponsors, product owners and customers to project managers, business analysts, developers and QA teams – keeping everyone in lockstep and aligned to the strategic goals of the projects. Its flexibility allows teams to customize Contour to fit their unique development processes, whether they are using Waterfall, Agile or a hybrid of methodologies.  Also, through integrations with other leading development tools, Contour provides a best-of-breed solution that ensures requirements are properly managed and, if modified, communicated instantly across the enterprise to ensure that everyone understands what the team is building and why.  Free trials available:

Contour 3.5 is available now as an on-site solution companies can self-host or as a secure, cloud-based solution hosted by Jama.  Flexible licensing and pricing options are available.  To learn more, visit or
