Danube Technologies releases its ScrumWorks Pro 4 project management tool, which enables large development organizations to scale Scrum deployments across the enterprise.
Danube Technologies, a provider of project management tools and training for
the Scrum methodology of agile software development, has released its new
ScrumWorks Pro 4 project management tool.
Danube released the tool at the Agile 2009 Conference
in Chicago. The product, initially
launched on Aug. 3, enables large development organizations to scale Scrum
deployments across the enterprise.
"Agile 2009 is the premier event for the entire agile community, and
ScrumWorks Pro 4 represents an additional proof point on the continued maturity
of Scrum practices in the enterprise," said Laszlo Szalvay, co-founder and CEO
at Danube. "We are excited to officially introduce
ScrumWorks 4 directly to the agile community in Chicago, and look forward to
gaining continued feedback from hands-on practitioners that will help us
continuously improve our products."
Moreover, Danube officials said as Scrum continues to
gain popularity among developers and managers, the framework that was
originally conceived for use with small, co-located teams is being scaled to
accommodate Scrum-of-Scrum installations of thousands of users. However, as
many large organizations have attempted to translate the benefits of small-team
Scrum to enterprise-level installations, the available Scrum and agile tools
lacked functionality powerful enough to accurately model such complex
development, the company said.
ScrumWorks Pro 4 addresses the needs of larger development organizations by
providing an intuitive way to track cross-product development at the program
level. By using "Themes," or keyword tags for convenient sorting and
filtering, users can assign an "Epics" theme to all the constituent
products in a program. This allows them to roll up data into a high-level
program view, providing a realistic assessment of progress and enabling
informed release forecasting. For more information, visit
ScrumWorks Pro 4 is available and can be purchased directly from Danube.
Pricing is offered through an on-site, per-seat subscription license that
starts at $289 per user, per year, or less than $25 per user, per month, as
well as an on-site, per-seat fully paid license for $500.
