The Requirements Management service helps users of Alibaba Cloud big data services develop data in a standardized and cost-efficient way.

Note Requirements Management is available in the following regions: China (Shanghai), China (Hangzhou), China (Beijing), and China (Shenzhen).
Standardized data development has the following benefits:
  • Simplifies and standardizes workflows.
  • Eliminates invalid or redundant work and improves work efficiency.
  • Makes sure that data development is performed in a well-organized and controlled way.


  • Professional requirement management: Based on common data development scenarios, Requirements Management provides the milestone feature to display the current phase of each data requirement. Requirements Management provides a streamlined and closed-loop process from submitting a data requirement to delivering data.
  • Standardized development process: Requirements Management allows you to fully manage the lifecycle of a data requirement in different phases, including Review, Design, Develop, Test, Publish, and Acceptance Check.
