Agile 2009 attendees can view demo of recently launched enterprise Scrum tool
BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 20 -- Danube Technologies, Inc. (www.danube.com), the leader in project management tools and training for the Scrum methodology, will unveil its new ScrumWorks Pro 4 project management tool at next week's Agile 2009 conference in Chicago. Launched on August 3, ScrumWorks Pro 4 has received widespread industry recognition and customer support due to the product's unique ability to allow large development organizations to scale Scrum deployments across the enterprise. Agile 2009 attendees can view a live demo of the product at Danube's booth #10.
"Agile 2009 is the premier event for the entire agile community and ScrumWorks Pro 4 represents an additional proof point on the continued maturity of Scrum practices in the enterprise," said Laszlo Szalvay, co-founder and CEO at Danube. "We are excited to officially introduce ScrumWorks 4 directly to the agile community in Chicago, and look forward to gaining continued feedback from hands-on practitioners that will help us continuously improve our products."
As Scrum continues to gain popularity among developers and managers alike, the framework which was originally conceived for use with small, co-located teams is being scaled to accommodate Scrum-of-Scrum installations of thousands of users. However, as many large organizations have attempted to translate the benefits of small team Scrum to enterprise-level installations, the available Scrum and agile tools lacked functionality powerful enough to accurately model such complex development.
ScrumWorks Pro 4 addresses the needs of larger development organizations by providing an intuitive way to track cross-product development at the program level. Utilizing "Themes," keyword tags for convenient sorting and filtering, users can assign an "Epics" theme to all the constituent products in a program. This allows them to roll up data into a high-level program view, providing a realistic assessment of progress and enabling informed release forecasting.
