  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    FAQ
    Can InspiRD software be deployed within our intranet (behind our firewall)?

    Yes. The software is designed to be deployed inside a firewall or on the cloud.

    For an on-premise deployment, your organization needs to provide industry standard JAVA application server (such as Tomcat, JBOSS etc) and a database server. InspiRD supports multiple industry standard databases including Oracle and MySQL. Please contact us to learn more.

    Is a cloud version available?

    Yes. A cloud based SAAS is available. We leverage Redhat Openshift cloud platform.

    Does the InspiRD client run in a browser?

    Yes. All users can access InspiRD tools through a browser. No client software needs to be delpoyed - reducing costs and enhancing security.

    Can the software be configured for our processes or will customization be required?

    Configuration. InspiRD provides a full graphical administration console to control and configure our software suite. This powerful and flexible tool can be used to make our solutions adapt to any culture or processes. Removing the need for custom software development reduces your upfront costs and minimizes upgrade costs.

    Do you support data import and export?

    Yes. Users are able to export data to Microsoft Office (Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc.).

    Bulk data import and export is possible using industry standard formats such as XML and JSON.

    Can InspiRD tools integrate with other tools (PLM, Project management, etc.) we use currently?

    Yes. InspiRD provides a full API to support integration. You can either work with your other tool vendors to use our APIs and build interfaces. Or InspiRD can build interfaces for you. Please contact us to learn more.

    Can InspiRD support regulatory reporting such as DoT DTIC submissions or DHF?

    Yes. A full XML and MS Office export capability is integrated to produce custom reports and data submissions.  Please <a href="/contact-us">contact us</a> to learn more.

    Do InspiRD tools support a workflow?

    InspiRD tools are built around a very flexible workflow that will satisfy needs of most organizations. Our tools automatically track interdependencies between elements and use them to notify all impacted team memberes of changes that impact them. As relationships are added or modified between elements (projects, requirements, risks, tests etc), the notifications change automatically.

    A fully configurable workflow is in development and will be delivered in Q2 2017.

    Are changes tracked in InspiRD tools?

    Each change is captured in the database and is accessible to any user with required permissions.

    Can we control access to individual elements in the database?

    Yes. You can control read or write permission to EVERY element. Access can be controlled for individual users or for groups of users. A full UI is provided to build and maintain user groups.

    What measures has InspiRD taken to ensure information security?

    InspiRD takes information security very seriously. We have architected the server around information security. The entire server code is written in java and leverages Spring Security. There is no client to deploy and no data is stored on client machines, reducing potential security exposure.

    It is possible to leverage your organization's Active Directory or LDAP to verify credentials before access. If deployed in your intranet, your firewall automatically protects all information. For cloud deployment, we leverage Redhat's security infrastructure. We continuously test our code for vulnerabilities such as SQL injection and perform penetration testing. Our software has successfully completed a full DoD source code security audit.
