CollabNet Releases ScrumWorks Pro 4.5 in the Cloud

CollabNet has released ScrumWorksPro 4.5, the latest version of the company’s Agile project and program management software.

The new version is available both as a hosted service and for on-premise installation and features a wide array of powerful new reporting capabilities.

When purchased as a hosted service, ScrumWorks Pro 4.5 provides enterprises with instant access for new team members and upgrades in minutes.

The new release is the latest element in CollabNet’s aggressive Cloud strategy, following closely on the company’s acquisition of Codesion, for worldwide Subversion hosting. Currently, CollabNet Cloud services host millions of software developers, project and program managers, and other users.

“The new ScrumWorks Pro capabilities were selected based on CollabNet’s real-world experience working with thousands of Agile enterprise customers worldwide,” said Victor Szalvay, vice president and chief technology officer, Scrum Business Line, CollabNet. “The product is intentionally designed to support the core Agile values and processes and is the ideal platform both for small teams and for organizations scaling Agile to meet the requirements of large, distributed enterprise development environments.”

The new version of ScrumWorks Pro also delivers powerful new program- and team-level Web-based reporting features for monitoring and modeling work, even within the largest, most-complex, and distributed Agile development environments. New reports include:

  • Hours Spent by Theme
  • Lean Cycle Time
  • Release Burn-Up
  • Team Average Velocity
  • Epic Budget Progress

These advanced reporting tools are designed to help organizations track R&D hours, work more effectively under fixed budgets or fixed schedules, and to more accurately forecast release and iteration milestones.

Additionally, a new comments feature enhances team-level collaboration, enabling development organizations to log vital notes and discussions pertaining to ScrumWorks Pro artifacts.
