VersionOne Announces Story Card and Strategic Planning Enhancements

VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile project management tools, today announced the availability of its Summer 2012 Release.

The new release introduces customizable, printable story cards and several enhancements focused on improving the team experience, strategic planning and performance.

“Strategic Portfolio Management is a primary focus for software organizations that need full traceability from portfolio-level initiatives down to development-level tasks in order to make good decisions when prioritizing work,” said VersionOne President and CEO Robert Holler. “VersionOne’s new strategic planning enhancements help evaluate which initiatives provide the most value with the least risk, while engaging teams with the tools to work their way.”

Release Highlights:

  • Customizable Story Cards – Display the most useful information on board views without drilling into each card’s detail.
  • Printable Story & Task Cards – Print stories and tasks as physical cards for use in planning exercises or white boards. QR codes provide full mobile access and updating.
  • Epic Bubble Charts – Plot epics with drill-down capabilities to quickly understand the right strategic initiatives to work on.
  • Epic Tracking Report – Visualize how epics are progressing with a comprehensive roll-up of key data points within projects. Easily track epic workflows; planned versus interrupt-driven work; and volatility in epic size over time.

Along with its Summer Release, VersionOne has also announced a new integration with qTrace from QASymphony, a desktop application that allows users to capture screens and submit them as defects directly to VersionOne. This integration allows users to create more descriptive defect records and save time in the defect submission process.
