TechExcel, Inc., a leading provider of Application Lifecycle Management software, today announced it will preview DevTrack 8.0 for software development teams (booth #415) at the annual SD West Conference, held March 9 - 13 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. DevTrack comprehensively tracks and manages product defects, change requests, project-related documents, HTML links, and all other development issues. The latest version of TechExcel's award-winning project issue and defect tracking tool adds support for Unicode characters, definable user interface settings for multi-lingual projects, and a new dashboard engine called MyWork. TechExcel plans to announce general availability of DevTrack 8.0 in May.
"With our new Unicode support, we are meeting the process management and defect tracking needs of the thousands of developers in Eastern Europe and Asia. DevTrack is now a truly global solution," said Dr. Tieren Zhou, TechExcel's CEO and Chief Software Architect. "Also, the MyWork dashboard allows executives, managers, and teams to see all their work in one place and quickly navigate between different development projects."
What's New in Version 8
TechExcel's DevTrack is used daily by tens of thousands of developers to track work items and defects through a definable workflow. The software provides managers with the reporting capabilities needed to make intelligent decisions needed for rapidly evolving projects. DevTrack allows for any process to be modeled, including traditional waterfall as well as newer agile practices.
Version 8.0 introduces new and enhanced features that allow organizations to optimize all development processes and reduce the risks that often come with international teams, including:
- MyWork Dashboard
- Full Unicode support
- Multi-lingual support
- User-definable UI names and values for multiple languages
- And More…
"We are very excited to release the MyWork dashboard," said Paul Unterberg, Product Manager of DevTrack. "This addition to the tool makes it easier to see patterns and identify trends much more easily, across all development teams." With MyWork, users are able to configure a special page in DevTrack to show definable widgets. A widget can be defined for any report in the system. This allows users to place all the important information they need to see all their work in one place. Furthermore, MyWork widgets are available to all TechExcel applications, allowing single sign on and cross-product reporting.
