Well, in actuality NEITHER ONE is a "Standard", they're both Requirements
criteria documents, and you cannot rely solely on the information from
either to determine which product suits an organization's needs, only that
the products meet the requirements set forth by those documents.
Your organization will need to perform a functional needs assessment of what
criteria YOU REQUIRE a system to satisfy then determine which of the
available systems meet THOSE REQUIREMENTS.
What Fred says about 5015.2 being for a "defense" or a "government"
environment is in part true, that was how it was originally designed, but
it's become more broadly accepted as the marker by which many RMAs are
measured- but what can be misleading is that if a system meets the criteria,
it doesn't mean they're all equal; just that they can do the same things in
one way or another. It might take 2 clicks or 15 clicks to satisfy a
requirement, all that maters to pass the test is that it does.
As for MoReq, well... it was developed by a Consulting firm on a for pay
basis with the aid of input from others. It wasn't done under the same
rigor applied to developing a consensus based Standard, nor were they
required during public review to satisfy all questions submitted or resolve
any issues to the satisfaction of the submitter before going forward.
And as much as 5015.2 is US defense/govt focused, MoReq is EU focused.
