Agility in software and service engineering usually needs to encompass the requirements analysis phase. This paper describes a multi-lingual Webbased tool that allows multiple users and stakeholders of different, possibly geographically dispersed organizations to perform requirements analysis activities in an agile and collaborative manner, and in close cooperation with software architects and engineers. The tool relies upon the identification and semi-formal description of use cases, e.g. following Cockburn's approach, and the resourceoriented extensions proposed by the SERVUS Design Methodology. It supports to define relationships between use cases, their representation in UML, their stepwise refinement and mapping to existing or emerging capabilities of service platforms as well as the specification of associated test cases. The tool is illustrated by its use in the European research project ENVIROFI. This project aims at analyzing and specifying the generic and specific enablement of the Future Internet core platform for the environmental information space.
