New self-service environment allows program-level planners to align strategy with execution
ATLANTA - October 15, 2013 - VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile project management tools, announces several new features in its Fall 2013 Release to make scaling agile easier by giving software organizations a way to more efficiently align business strategy with execution. This release simplifies program planning with the addition of custom reporting built in to a PlanningRoom, a dedicated, self-service environment for strategic planners to plan, track, assess and adapt their efforts over time; additional Scaled Agile Framework®(SAFe®)* reports; and enhanced epic breakdown.
“As organizations scale team-level success with agile to multiple teams, projects and programs, it becomes more difficult to measure and improve progress across all levels of scale,” said VersionOne President and CEO Robert Holler. “Our new release gives program-level planners one dedicated environment where they can come full circle with their planning processes – visualizing progress and finding ways to improve and align their agile initiatives.”
VersionOne’s Fall 2013 Release includes:
- PlanningRoom Analytics: help measure and assess progress scaling agile with both pre-built and custom reports readily available within PlanningRoom.
- SAFe Reporting: provides additional team-level and program-level reports to assist in charting scaled agile initiatives.
- Enhanced Epic Breakdown: expedites the process of breaking down strategic epics into feature- and story-level work items.
