Danube Technologies has announced the availability of ScrumWorks Pro 4, its tool for implementing the Scrum method of agile development for enterprise development teams.

ScrumWorks Pro 4 enables large teams to meet complex development needs by providing a flexible system to model features and milestones across multiple development groups, according to Danube officials.

"As the popularity of Scrum continues to grow, so has the demand for a project management tool that is sophisticated enough to scale for the largest, most complex Scrum development environments," said Victor Szalvay, Danube chief technology officer and the product owner of ScrumWorks Pro. "This latest release gives users a powerful combination of functionality and flexibility to effectively model features and milestones across multiple related development groups."

New features in ScrumWorks Pro 4 include program management, a release planning view, flexible modeling of development organizations and enterprise reporting. The new release also delivers high-level feature decomposition with Epics. Epics are the stated high-level features or goals associated with any milestone. ScrumWorks Pro 4 enables developers to define Epics and track progress at the project or program level.

"ScrumWorks Pro has always been driven by customer feedback," said Szalvay. "For large-scale Scrum deployments, Release 4 will help coordinate multiple related product backlogs, all of which can work toward common release dates and feature goals."

Pricing for per-seat subscription licenses for ScrumWorks Pro 4 starts at $289 per user per year, or less than $25 per user per month, the company said.
