Winter 2017 Software Update Schedule
Lifecycle Team & Catalyst Editions
Lifecycle Enterprise & Ultimate Editions
VersionOne Lifecycle for Agile ALM
VersionOne Lifecycle for agile ALM provides end-to-end enterprise agile lifecycle management that enables your teams at all levels — enterprise, portfolio, program, and team — to strategize, develop, and deliver software faster.
Catalyst, Enterprise and Ultimate Editions
VersionOne Lifecycle is now integrated with Slack. The integration will let you receive Slack notifications when changes are made to workitems across your delivery workflow. From the Subscriptions page, you can easily subscribe to different types of events to trigger a Slack notification alert when changes are made to your workitems.
VersionOne Roadmaps can be published easily to communicate your current and future plans to key stakeholders. You can now share and export your roadmaps to keep both internal and external audiences informed on specific delivery dates and planned duration of work. The roadmaps ensure alignment and coordination between your corporate objectives and product deliverables.
Enterprise and Ultimate Editions
VersionOne Timesheets help you track the time spent working on different work items for a period of time. Team members now have the ability to submit their timesheets to the appropriate manager, administrator, or auditor to review, edit, and approve from within Lifecycle. The user interface integrates with your external time tracking systems using our API and eliminates dual timesheet data entry.
Delivery at a Glance
Enterprise and Ultimate Editions with Continuum
VersionOne’s Delivery at a Glance dashboard now provides visibility into the distribution of work items across the phases of your delivery workflow by Portfolio Item and Package type. When using the ‘View by Portfolio Item’, you can drill down from an epic to see the distribution across phases by feature and filter by owner to allow a product owner to narrow the view to just their items. Packages and the affiliated work items can also be closed or removed directly from the Delivery at a Glance board.
You can now save and share the Analytics Dashboards aligned with your organizational structure (Enterprise, Portfolio, Program and Team). The dashboards enable advanced analysis of project data and help drive fact-based decision making. For anyone trying to manage or support multiple teams or projects, you can save, reuse, and share these dashboards with other individuals across the organization.
More Lifecycle Enhancements
Enhanced IssueSync for JIRA (Catalyst, Enterprise, and Ultimate Editions) – VersionOne IssueSync for JIRA has added support for version 7.0 or higher. The integration transforms JIRA Issues into workitems (defects or stories) in VersionOne Lifecycle. IssueSync now supports multi-select custom fields.
VersionOne Continuum for DevOps
VersionOne Continuum™ is an enterprise-scale DevOps continuous delivery solution for accelerating the speed, reducing the risk, and ensuring the quality of complex software deployments.
Continuum pipelines can be tested using a debug run to verify your pipeline is designed properly and pipeline instances can be re-run if they fail.
Delivery Phase Automation
Continuum also supports adding automation for packages to trigger actions automatically when entering a particular phase.
