IBM Relies on Cadence to Speed Distributed Teams’ Verification Management
Feature stories archive »
For IBM, the biggest challenge facing BIST verification teams isn’t architecting or debugging the environment. It’s generating weekly status reports to ensure focus on critical areas. The overload of project information typically leaves too many people spending too much time creating reports. To speed things up, IBM turned to Cadence® Incisive® Enterprise Manager.
IBM uses the Enterprise Manager planner utility to create executable verification plans that are mapped to metrics coming from the Incisive testbench. By automating much of the tracking and other work that used to be done manually, Cadence technology accelerates reporting throughout the product lifecycle. Moreover, Enterprise Manager accommodates IBM’s geographically distributed teams, aggregating regressions from all team members in a master plan that IBM uses for tracking and management.
