Columbia, MD January 19, 2009 -- Artifact Software, Inc., today announced that it has added advanced traceability reporting and project & portfolio management (PPM) to its market leading SaaS Lighthouse product. By bringing together software project tools and data into a single, integrated workspace, teams using Lighthouse benefit with real-time traceability and project metrics and are able to quickly identify and correct risk factors before they have a severe impact on project budgets, schedules and quality.

The new 5.0 release, code-named Vancouver, includes advanced reporting capability to take advantage of the combination of project and lifecycle management.  Any project artifact, such as a requirement, can be linked to other project artifacts, such as tasks, change requests, test cases and results, or defects making it possible to instantly produce any conceivable traceability report.  Reports can be run on a single project or across an entire portfolio of projects.

Blending together both PPM and lifecycle management capabilities into a single online project workspace is a powerful combination ideal for the virtual software teams that now dominate the technology landscape.  Hundreds of companies and thousands of users all over the world use Lighthouse for software projects because it gives them the power to produce desired results.

Lighthouse user, John Leech, Vice President Technology & Application Development at Thomson Reuters (NYSE:TRI), the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals remarked, "our software projects require us to manage requirements, changes, testing, defects, and of course, tasks, schedules and resources. Bringing together both PPM and lifecycle management capabilities into a single product at an affordable price is long overdue, and will help any software team work more effectively together."
