ScrumWorks Pro Updated

CollabNet has released Version 4.4 of ScrumWorks Pro.

This release of the project and program management software is fully integrated with the CollabNet TeamForge ALM platform, creating an end-to-end Agile ALM platform for distributed software development. ScrumWorks Pro artifacts, such as sprints, backlog items, tasks, releases, and themes, can now be linked with source code, wiki entries, email messages, bugs, and other artifacts in the CollabNet TeamForge platform. Users of each product can view and modify scrum assets in the other, enhancing team-wide collaboration, and TeamForge's tracing and advanced search capabilities are now available to both products.

"The merger of the CollabNet and Danube teams was driven by a common vision of 'Agile ALM in the Cloud' for distributed teams. The vision included fully integrated capabilities for project and program management, software development, and deployment and delivery in public and private clouds," says CollabNet's Bill Portelli "Today's new release of ScrumWorks Pro is the first step in the delivery of that vision, bringing together the disciplines and stakeholders of scrum project and program management and the underlying software lifecycle artifacts of software development teams."

ScrumWorks Pro 4.4 provides bi-directional syncing with TeamForge. Major changes to the ScrumWorks Pro API were also made, enabling bi-directional "polling" syncing with other tools and ensuring future backwards compatibility. Community-requested features, including "Estimated vs. Actual" reporting and an "Original Task Estimates" field, were also added.
