About VisibleThread

VisibleThread (www.visiblethread.com) is a software product company delivering solutions that dramatically cut IT project waste for medium / large enterprises, government, system integrators and ISVs (Independent Software Vendors).

Today, despite sophisticated tooling, 90% of IT organizations still use Microsoft Word (‘The New Business Analyst’ – Forrester Research, April 2008) as the primary tool for business analysis activities. Understanding whether these documents are ‘fit for purpose’ is a highly manual, time consuming and error prone process.

The VisibleThread on-demand/on-premise solution is the first of its kind that uses industry Best Practice to analyze MS Word documents for gaps and inconsistencies in ‘real-time’. Using a series of web based ‘dashboards’ and MS Word ‘Add-ins’, VisibleThread fits seamlessly into any IT process approach (iterative or waterfall), dramatically raising document visibility, instantly highlighting ‘at risk’ and ‘on track’ projects.
