One Order Of Super-Large Agile To Go Please

The Hansoft team collaboration and management tool has reached its 7.5 version iteration. The tool itself combines different methods including Agile, lean, and Gantt in the same real-time view.

Its latest version is said to feature (as a result of feedback from enterprise-level users) the ability to scale Agile to what its developers have called "super-large" size.

"Compared to other tools, Hansoft has proven particularly well to fit in large development environments with several parallel development streams, for the teams, programs, and on the portfolio level. These organizations typically have complex release trains, use multiple developments methods, and work on different OS platforms," said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.

Also included here is something called "flexible release tagging" for developers who face multiple releases mixed from several dimensions. For example, targeting several releases in one sprint and managing complex release trains.

The sprint burndown has also been improved with an ideal burndown line, exclusion of non-working days and the option to turn off sprint prediction, plus there is the ability to turn off the sprint prediction and exclude non-working days.

Other features include the status summary improvements where subprojects show "In progress" when they contain unfinished items and items with "To be deleted"- status are excluded from the summary.

Improvements to the product backlog window make it possible to move it behind other windows and to minimize it and there is an option to lock the position of the "item name" column and archive releases.
