"The Scrum framework and ScrumWorks Pro have given us a shared framework and vocabulary," said Mark Wightman, head of development, Red Gate Software. "The transparency we now have improves productivity, surfaces impediments early in the cycle, and enhances collaborative communication."

Enhanced User Interface
The ScrumWorks Pro Web user interface has been completely redesigned for the 5.0 release. Now, nearly every function of the rich desktop client is available in the browser-based UI, enabling developers to remain in the tool full-time and supporting the vast majority of a development manager's activities. Additionally, the UI has been optimized to support larger, geographically distributed teams, with enhanced transparency and continuous metrics that enable developers to adapt quickly and to easily manage requirements, set priorities, and track their work. Finally, a new dashboard feature will present each user a custom project view upon login.

More Industry-Leading Technology
Other key features of ScrumWorks Pro 5.0 include:

  • Upgraded program, release, and sprint planning capabilities, which streamline Scrum project management.

  • Overhaul of the project taskboard, which delivers more power to the team while enhancing ease of use.

"ScrumWorks Pro version 5.0 significantly raises the bar for Agile project management solutions. The redesigned UI helps to scale Agile across an enterprise like no other available product," said David Parker, vice president and general manager, Scrum business line, CollabNet. "On top of that, the full version of the product is now free for small teams, another industry-first."

ScrumWorks Pro integrates seamlessly with a wide variety of popular development tools and platforms, including the award-winning CollabNet TeamForge application lifecycle management (ALM) platform.
