VersionOne Ultimate Edition Provides Unparalleled Visibility for the Agile Organization

VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile management tools, today announced the availability of VersionOne Ultimate Edition – a comprehensive agile lifecycle management platform for scaling agile organizations. The Ultimate Edition builds on VersionOne’s proven agile development platform and delivers an organizational solution that includes new Agile Analytics, Test Management and Ideas Management capabilities. The Ultimate Edition provides the only integrated, out-of-the-box agile management platform where all stakeholders - customers, managers, product owners, executives, developers, testers and analysts - can easily work together in a single, centralized environment.

“An organization’s long-term success with agile development depends on collaboration and alignment,” said Robert C. Holler, VersionOne president and CEO. “An understanding that agile impacts multiple departments across a company is crucial to the long-term success of agile organizations. The Ultimate Edition provides teams and stakeholders unparalleled visibility into agile development initiatives across organizations.”

The Value of Agile Analytics

VersionOne’s Ultimate Edition offers a fully-featured analytics tool that includes role-based dashboards, data analysis, and custom reporting and charting capabilities. The robust data analysis and reporting options extend visibility beyond the standard, pre-defined reports and dashboards currently available. Agile teams can easily build the reports they need without purchasing a separate analytics tool.

Key Agile Analytics features include:

  • Sample reports and dashboards to get started quickly
  • Powerful, spreadsheet-like data analysis grids
  • Interactive, easy to configure role-based dashboards
  • Intuitive wizard-based custom report builder
  • Integrated user and project-level data security

“One of the biggest pain-points software teams routinely confront is the ability to quickly and easily build customizable reports that convey project-specific insight for their management teams,” Holler said. “With our new Ultimate Edition, VersionOne is the only agile management platform provider to offer integrated data analytics. Our customers have requested advanced analysis tools with extended reporting and custom dashboard functionality, and this new edition offers a holistic view of the entire development process, including testing and customer idea management, to anyone in the organization.”

The Value of Regression Testing

With VersionOne Ultimate Edition, teams now have an integrated environment for planning, tracking and reporting on development and testing activities. Teams have complete visibility into regression testing activities, ensuring testing consistency across iterations, projects and releases. Teams can also plan and track the time and effort they spend on development and testing within a sprint.

Key Regression Testing features include:

  • Reusable test inventory created from completed tests
  • Tagging of tests for easy searching and flexible grouping
  • Comprehensive regression test planning for new projects and releases
  • Regression test suites to organize testing for each environment
  • Roll-up reporting and a visual display of test progress and results via the Testboard

Other Key Release Features

Adding to their extensive portfolio of free, open-source tool integration connectors, VersionOne now offers a connector for Hudson, a very popular continuous integration solution. Teams want to build the agile development platform of their choice while avoiding the expense and rigidity of traditional software development suites. VersionOne provides an open, extensible agile management platform which can be easily customized to fit the unique needs of any team.
