See How Everything Fits Together
Get the full context of your project by seeing how all your work items fit together. View the traceability from stories to themes, goals, and epic-level initiatives through multiple levels using a simple UI. See how stories are related, including upstream and downstream dependencies and impediments.
Visualize Release Dependencies
See how interdependent stories are related. Sequence work to prevent downstream impediments and blocking issues. Identify scheduling conflicts, blocking issues, and circular dependencies using clear visual cues.
Perform Advanced Analysis of Your Project Data
Flexible, spreadsheet-style grids help you analyze and interpret your project data without leaving VersionOne. Analytics software provides multiple filtering and grouping options and allows scrum team members to define formulas, and display summary totals. Save, reuse, and share your Analytic Grids for quick access to frequently used views. Your project data in this analytics tool automatically remains safe and secure.
Build and Customize Your Own Reports
Without the right tools, it can be painful and time consuming to build custom reports. The VersionOne agile analytics solution includes a flexible, wizard-based report builder that helps you build and customize reports using your project data. Reports are based on standard and custom, as well as calculated fields. All reports can be shared and/or exported to common file types such as .CSV and .PDF.
Compare Business Initiatives at a Glance
The Epic Bubble Chart provides an easy-to-understand visual which helps Product Managers compare epics. Profiling combinations of value, effort and risk, teams can easily understand trade-offs and make smart prioritization decisions for strategic epic-level initiatives.
Track Business Initiatives On a Timeline
Communicate the status of your portfolio using a timeline view across multiple releases showing when initiatives are scheduled to start and end, highlighting work completed so far. Quickly identify “at-risk” projects that are behind schedule, with the ability to drill deeper into projects for more detailed information. Understand your organizational velocity to help you balance the workload across multiple releases and ensure the feasibility of your implementation plan.
Track Strategy Through to Implementation
Track your epics or business initiatives through to implementation using Strategic Theme Breakdown. Spot hidden complexity and effort-intensive collections of epics, capabilities, features, and stories within each high-level Strategic Theme. Navigate up or down the hierarchy within the diagram to get a complete understanding of how epics/initiatives decompose into leaf-level stories.
Reveal Anomalies and Patterns
Heat maps are another unique agile visualization, available through VersionOne’s custom reporting. Heat maps help you visualize data by substituting data values with a corresponding color in each cell. Colors relate to the level of each measurement making it easy to find highs, lows and sometimes, patterns.
Visually Manage Your Work
Of course, VersionOne helps you manage your work visually too, with a variety of board views for each role in your agile organization including epic-, story-, task- and testboards. Process steps, swim lanes, WIP limits, cycle time and item aging work together to ensure your teams can easily manage their work.
Track Status Visually
Track the progression of your team’s work during iterations with automatically generated burndown charts to see issues before they become problems. Improve overall delivery performance by identifying and resolving bottlenecks at any stage of the work cycle using cumulative flow diagrams.
