Hansoft brings Actionable Agile Metrics to developers, managers and executives with the release of Hansoft 8.

Hansoft 8 uniquely brings Actionable Agile Metrics to the entire organization by combining Program Management with Business Intelligence in one tool. Decision making on all levels, from the team to the program and portfolio, can now be supported by relevant data visualized with iterative and collaborative dashboards.

“Agile metrics is a hot topic right now and we can see how many large organizations realize that critical decision making happens on all levels every day, not only in top management group. Yet the traditional business intelligence tools are expensive and only available to a very limited audience, typically executives and project management offices. We wanted to democratize metrics by bringing them to the entire organization so that everyone can make informed decisions every day and contribute to the success of the company.

A dashboard is a dull tool when it doesn’t show what you need to improve your development process and product. In today’s competitive world you need to focus on metrics that are actionable and relevant instead of creating that cockpit of “nice-to-have-graphs” we see so often. In an agile environment, metrics also needs to be iterative and continuously improved. Hansoft 8 allows everyone in the organization to collaboratively create and share dashboards based on the metrics they need to support their daily decision-making”, said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.
