CollabNet revamps ScrumWorks Pro project management tool

The new release is capable of managing both Scrum and Kanban teams from a single tool to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve visibility

By CBR Staff Writer

Enterprise cloud development and agile ALM products provider CollabNet has introduced ScrumWorks Pro 6.0, a new version of its project management tool with Kanaban support.

ScrumWorks Pro is designed to addresses the project management challenges of Agile development and enables organisations to optimise project and programme management of distributed agile teams.

The new version comes with complete support for managing "Kanban," a continuous process method rooted in Lean software development.

It is also capable of managing both Scrum and Kanban teams from a single tool to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve visibility, the company said.

ScrumWorks Engineering senior director Victor Szalvay said customer interest in Kanban development led the company to design a clean and modern approach that complements the Scrum capabilities. "Adding Kanban extends the reach of ScrumWorks Pro, providing more flexibility for development teams that are applying agile methods in increasingly diverse situations," Szalvay said.

ScrumWorks Pro can be provisioned in the cloud to enable agile developers to code, connect and deploy software on an enterprise-grade, hybrid cloud platform.

It helps customers adopt and scale agile methods by providing programme, product, iteration and new Kanban management capabilities, along with complete reporting and user management controls.

The tool supports Kanban with custom "swim-lanes" to model team process, "pull-based" work item workflow, work-in-progress limits and work item lead and cycle-time reporting.

It also can simultaneously manage Scrum and Kanban teams working together on the same project, allowing developers and product owners to shift between Scrum and Kanban work styles.
