codeBeamer 5.5 Released: Agile ALM with Traceability
Date 2010/11/10 2:01:54 | Topic: Press Release
|Intland is pleased to announce the general availability of codeBeamer 5.5, the latest version of its Agile Application Lifecycle Management Solution. |
One of the fundamental problems we addressed in codeBeamer version 5.5 is extracting more knowledge out of the information available in your codeBeamer system, thus supporting more informed decisions. We provide the following tools for that: visualizing current project state and project health using realtime charts, following project events via activity streams and monitoring project progress with fast milestone status reports.
Cross-project Release Management helps to track the realtime state of the issues to be completed in your upcoming and completed milestones with an ease.
Baselining, which makes codeBeamer the only ALM product with this capability, is a unique feature to take, maintain, analyze and compare snapshots of your digital content (documents and wiki pages).
Version 5.5 introduces support for the two most practiced agile methodologies, Scrum and Kanban. This functionality is provided optionally in any codeBeamer issue tracker.
codeBeamer 5.5 is also a major step forward in terms of integrating ALM with the best-of-breed software tools available on the market. Most notably, codeBeamer now supports Microsoft Project, the de-facto Project Management tool, HP Quality Center, one of the most widely used Test Management software, and Mac OS X, Apple's popular operating system.
ScrumWizard is a new extension for codeBeamer, that enables teams to go agile, by adding Scrum and Kanban functionality to codeBeamer.
ScrumWizard with codeBeamer combines Scrum and Kanban based project execution with Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). ScrumWizard is very flexible: Scrum, Kanban, waterfall, or hybrid processes can be optionally used in any project.
ScrumWizard introduces additional value to the codeBeamer platform, leveraging its traceability, security, visibility, and collaboration capabilities. This unique blend of the two worlds results in incomparable productivity and simplified administration.
In order to provide Distributed Version Control for distributed agile teams, CodeBeamer integrates with the Git, Mercurial, Subversion and CVS version control systems. Developers can work fully distributed or fully centralized, whichever is right for them.
