New capabilities make scaling agile initiatives easier with enhanced visibility, tracking, and forecasting
ATLANTA January 22, 2015 VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile lifecycle management solutions, announced its 2015 Winter Release, which includes Strategic Themes aligned with SAFe®, Epic Timeline Drilldown, Forecasting with Monte Carlo Simulation, and more. These new capabilities make scaling agile initiatives easier by enabling project and portfolio managers to view, prioritize, forecast and align projects from the highest business initiatives to execution.
“Successful enterprise agile transformation requires strategic focus on aligning all projects within the larger context of the business strategy,” said VersionOne CEO Robert Holler. “The Winter Release makes this easier by keeping the highest-priority initiatives front and center for project teams at every level, and at every point in the delivery process.”
The new VersionOne capabilities improve business alignment and agility to adapt to evolving plans and priorities:
- Strategic Themes: Ability to group and view all items that fall within a particular strategic theme, enabling product owners to easily prioritize and drive work from the highest business strategies down, including alignment with SAFe.
- Epic Timeline Drilldown: Within the Epic Timeline view, teams can quickly drill into details, priorities and progress to validate alignment of projects to commitments.
- Forecasting with Monte Carlo Simulation: From Project Burn-Down to Epic Burn-Up, this predictive modeling allows project managers to easily forecast project and epic completion dates with greater confidence.
- CommitStream®: Consolidate code commit information from different version control systems across multiple repositories, providing a unified view of code changes on stories, defects, and other workitems.
VersionOne has made several other enhancements, including enhanced Board Headers to improve visual work management and overall user experience. In addition, streamlined API security was enhanced to make the authentication process easier for external applications to connect to VersionOne regardless of authentication scheme.
