Digité announced the Beta availability of a new line of products called Swift. The first product in this line, Swift-Kanban, focused on enabling Lean software development on the cloud will be available for Beta testing by Dec 1, 2010.
Making the announcement, Mahesh Singh, Sr. VP – Product for Digité said, “We are witnessing a large shift in the way teams are working together to produce world-class software products using very innovative and light-weight methodologies, most of which are highly adaptable to meet the specific dynamics of the team. Kanban is one such enabler that is gaining a lot of traction amongst the software practitioners. Kanban is a system for visualizing work, making it flow, reducing waste, and maximizing customer value. The best thing about Kanban is that it can be adopted by any team and can co-exist, with any other process or methodology they are following.“
“While our flagship product, Digité Enterprise, will continue to provide a comprehensive and compelling Agile Application Lifecycle Management solution to large and mid-sized organizations, we’ll continue adding more innovative products through our Swift line of products to cater to various business challenges arising due to complex business demands”, added Mahesh.
