ThoughtWorks, the pioneering Agile IT consultancy and software company, today announced the availability of Mingle 2.1, an upgrade to its Project Management tool for iterative software development. Mingle 2.1 offers enhanced workflow management capabilities, multi-level access control and an enriched user experience. With the release of Mingle 2.1, Project Managers can get more actionable intelligence through real-time collaboration data.
Mingle 2.1 provides organizations that require intelligent, multi-level user management, with premium user access options like Anonymous User Access and Light User Access. Mingle 2.1 enables teams to easily set up four levels of access:
- Project Administration - for those that need to change the structure of project(s),
- Team Membership - for other core participants (such as PMs, BAs, Devs, QAs),
- Read-only Team Membership - for Portfolio Managers and clients,
- Anonymous Access - for a wider group of stakeholders.
Mingle 2.1 also comes with easier-to-use Card TreesTM and Hierarchies, new macros for creating write-once-reuse-often reports and other enhancements based on feedback received from thousands of users.
"With projects getting more complex, project teams need simple tools that help them collaborate and deliver software faster. Mingle 2.1 contains new features and enhancements that help teams work the way they want to even when their teammates are located around the world," said Adam Monago, Mingle Product Manager at ThoughtWorks.
Mingle is a part of ThoughtWorks' Application Lifecycle Management Suite which also includes the recently launched products Cruise (Continuous Integration and Release Management tool) and Twist (Collaborative Testing tool).
