Blueprint works alongside some of the industry's best tools. Blueprint's large portfolio of integrations, such as Rally, Jira, VersionOne and TFS, all support Agile development methodologies. These integrations help reduce cost and align cross-departmental teams. Blueprint exchanges information with other enterprise tools via either the import/export of files, or through direct communication with other products. It is through these integrations that Blueprint fulfills its role as a best-of-breed requirements capability within an overall SDLC environment.
Blueprint integrates seamlessly with the most popular Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) products in the industry, by synchronizing content between them. In an Agile environment, the need for formal requirements beyond the 'user story' increases with the size and complexity of the project. Integration between Blueprint and an Agile ALM tool such as Rally, VersionOne, JIRA, or Microsoft TFS provides a powerful, complete team solution for projects using an enterprise Agile process.

Using innovative, patented technology, BlueDocs actually learns your documentation 'patterns' over time, so the more documents there are to convert, the more efficient BlueDocs becomes.
Blueprint also provides the capability to output data into a commonly used file like Excel, Visio or Word. Using Blueprint's Microsoft plugin, authors can quickly customize or create the document templates they need for document generation, in a manner that conforms to corporate brand standards. Having a template means you always have up-to-date requirements documents with precisely the information each individual needs.
