CollabNet Scrimmages Down For ScrumWorks Pro 5.0


CollabNet has taken the wraps off of its ScrumWorks Pro 5.0 Agile project and program management software. The new release is said to be a "comprehensive overhaul" of the ScrumWorks Pro core product offering, with what the company calls a modernized look-and-feel as well as better scalability.

Provided free for teams of up to 10 people, CollabNet says that existing ScrumWorks Pro users can upgrade now that nearly every function of the desktop client is available in the browser-based UI. This change is hoped to enable developers to remain in the tool full-time — while also providing a bridge to support the vast majority of a development manager's activities.

Additionally, the UI has been optimized to support larger, geographically distributed teams, with continuous metrics so that developers can adapt to changing requirements and set priorities as they track their work. Finally, a new dashboard feature will present each user a custom project view upon login.

Other key features of ScrumWorks Pro 5.0 include:

  • Upgraded program, release, and spring 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."
