The next step is for you to populate the stakeholders' views by selecting the parameters required that suit your company.
Besides the listed ones, Datamaran gives you the possibility of adding additional stakeholders (up to 7 stakeholder groups). You are also able to populate stakeholder groups with your own sources.
