VersionOne and Enthiosys Announce Solution Integration at Agile 2009 Conference
Enthiosys, the leading provider of Agile product management strategy and consulting services, and VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile management tools, announced integration of their software solutions. The companies have built interfaces between the VersionOne Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platform and Enthiosys’ Innovation Games® platform so that VersionOne’s customers can involve internal and external stakeholders in collaborative product development.
“As pioneers of the agile lifecycle management market, we’re always looking for ways to improve our customer’s software development process. Innovation Games Online lets our customers involve their own users into the planning cycle,” said Ian Culling, VersionOne CTO. “They engage stakeholders more intimately, understand requirements better, prioritize backlogs more effectively, and thereby increase business agility.”
The Innovation Games platform currently includes two online collaborative games based on Luke Hohmann’s book “Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products through Collaborative Play.” Buy A Feature brings together groups of users to collectively decide which product features are most valuable. Prune the Product Tree lets participants collaboratively design visual representations of a product’s evolution. These online games provide rich, real-time interactions without the cost or complexity of bringing participants physically together.
“VersionOne has helped define the agile tools market, with thousands of teams at innovative software organizations worldwide,” said Luke Hohmann, Enthiosys CEO. “Innovation Games Online can help these teams collaborate with customer sprint by sprint, ensuring that market inputs keep pace with Agile’s dramatically faster pace of development.”
