VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile application lifecycle management (ALM) software solutions, today introduced its Spring 2014 Release with features designed to help software organizations streamline multi-team release planning and improve cross-team collaboration.
New capabilities in the VersionOne agile ALM platform help organizations optimize their planning within and across releases, strengthen communications and relationships between teams, and balance business stakeholders’ expectations against realistic workload capacity at the release level:
• Release Capacity Planning: Predict bottlenecks and commit only to attainable work to optimize release plans and balance business demand with development’s workload.
• Activity Stream: See a constant feed of project activity such as closed defects, re-estimated stories, and changed relationships in an ordered, continuous flow – which is especially helpful for distributed teams.
• Agile Earned Value Reporting: Bridge the gap between earned value management and agile development by more effectively managing and communicating project status and progress to completion.
In addition, VersionOne has enhanced support for Microsoft Visual Studio TFS 2013 , enabling development teams to adapt quickly to the latest TFS 2013 updates integrated within the platform.
“As agile continues to spread across organizations, it’s becoming increasingly difficult – albeit critical – for strategic planners and agile teams to coordinate and optimize their shared planning efforts at the release level as well as the sprint level,” said VersionOne President and CEO Robert Holler. “Our Spring Release simplifies this process tremendously, allowing customers to streamline and improve the predictability of their high-level release planning.”
