VersionOne Launches V1: Agile Team -- Ideal Agile Project Management Solution for Small Teams
Powerful, lightweight tool solves limitations of spreadsheets, provides development teams quick and easy way to manage Agile projects
ATLANTA, May 12 -- VersionOne, recognized by Agile practitioners as the leader in Agile project management tools, today launched V1: Agile Team, a lightweight application that gives smaller teams and teams new to Agile software development everything they need to quickly and easily get started with planning and tracking Agile projects. By focusing on core Agile concepts -- team collaboration, continuous planning and iterative delivery -- we've created a streamlined way for smaller teams and new users to leverage Agile methodologies.
Built into V1: Agile Team are the key planning and management capabilities developers, testers and managers need to achieve the benefits of Agile methodologies including the ability to:
o Quickly import stories and defects from a spreadsheet and manage a consolidated product backlog
o Easily plan and prioritize stories via simple multi-item drag and drop functionality
o Efficiently plan multiple releases and sprints via an electric whiteboard interface
o Visually track releases and sprints through an interactive Taskboard, Testboard and Daily Scrum dashboard
o Automatically generate key Agile metrics such as Burndown, Velocity, Estimate trends (Burnup) and Cumulative Flow Reports for releases and sprints
"Today many software development teams rely on spreadsheets, bug trackers, emails and homegrown time-tracking tools to manage Agile development projects. These tools can be cumbersome and time consuming, particularly when trying to consolidate and share project status information with remote team members and stakeholders," said Robert Holler, CEO of VersionOne.
"Our goal with V1: Agile Team is to provide customers a quicker, easier and more powerful way to plan and track a software development project," continues Holler. "Now small teams have an efficient and cost-effective way to instantly gain visibility into their agile projects."
V1: Agile Team is fully extensible via its API/SDK and free, open source 3rd party tool integrations. By leveraging integrations with leading open source and commercial third-party development tools such as Subversion, CruiseControl, Bugzilla and FitNesse, customers can build a best-of-breed Agile ALM platform that meets their unique needs at a very low total cost of ownership (TCO).
For a limited time V1: Agile Team is available for free for an unlimited number of users. To request an on-demand or on-site copy visit http://www.versionone.com/getteamfree.
