Get More Value and More Visibility using the Agile Software Development Delivery Method
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Biz Performance Solutions, Inc. (BPS) released today its Agile CONSOLE that allows the entire agile process to be executed from a single web page rather than having to navigate to multiple pages or tabs. "This unique CONSOLE style view, shown to early Beta Users, was very positive", said David Mosher, CEO of Biz Performance Solutions.
Wikipedia defines Agile Software Development as a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle.
Agile development, in its simplest form, gives an easy-to-use framework to help teams, faced with a constantly evolving functional and technical design, to maintain focus on the rapid delivery of business value. As a result of this focus and its benefits, organizations can significantly reducing the overall risk associated with software development.
The console provides views for Sprint Planning, Sprint Standups, Sprint Reviews, and Sprint Retrospectives as well as views by role and by person.
Each view is tailored to show just the right information for each Sprint meeting to minimize meeting time and maximize collaboration. The CONSOLE features a unique rolldown/rollup technique to conserve screen space to see just the information needed.
In addition, the console also minimizes time required for creating and updating Stories by allowing for default team member’s default tasks for Grooming, In-Progress, and Done as well as Release.
Tasks and issues can be marked as Blocking for easy review in daily Setup's. In addition, next tasks can be indicated and remembered, so that completion of tasks is a single click.
BPS's Agile console supports not only 'Feature' Stories but 'Bug Fix', 'Spike', 'Refactor', and 'Debt'. In addition, the console supports the concept of Large Technology Initiatives (Epics) as well.
The Agile console seamlessly integrates with BPS’s Value Creator's Change Management system behind the scene to record changes for compliance reporting with no additional effort by the team.
The Agile console is yet another example of BPS's "Power through Simplicity" approach.
