Rommana is a fully integrated application life-cycle management solution that supports both agile and non-agile teams. It allows teams to choose how rigorous their process is and determine what types of formal reporting they require. It has several components, including a requirements manager, testing manager, bug manager, change-management solution, collaboration manager and sprint manager. The tool is methodology- and process-agnostic; all tools and components merely allow teams to manage their process, no matter how it is defined.
