Enabling enterprise strength agile with StarTeam has never been this easy.
StarTeam 13.0 and StarTeam Agile 1.0 launched today, introducing a new era of unified visibility and control for software developers. StarTeam Agile makes it possible to combine agile team management support with the rich change management environment of StarTeam. The combined solution provides support for enterprise wide integration, interoperability and co-existence of several ALM and IDE tools, creating a valuable “single source of the truth” for development teams, regardless of size, distribution or methodology.
New and existing users will find StarTeam 13.0 easier than ever to improve adoption and time to value with improvements to the cross platform UI to accommodate both advanced and beginning users. We also integrated menu options to access the StarTeam Agile features directly from within the cross platform client.
With the introduction of StarTeam Agile, assets from agile and non-agile projects can co-exist, thereby connecting agile teams directly with their release assets. StarTeam Agile simply is the most effective way for StarTeam customers to manage their Agile teams and projects. New features include:
- Organize, prioritize and manage your Agile teams’ product backlogs
- Plan sprints, task out work and track progress throughout the sprint
- Intuitive teamboard supports online collaboration and team stand ups
- Track progress with integrated analysis tools and burndown charts
- Extend your reach with info streams to manage incoming work requests
- Complete traceability from requirement or defect, through to story, task and code
StarTeam Agile users benefit from automated traceability between agile tasks and their source code. Tasks appear automatically within the developer’s IDE, resulting in less confusion and wasted time. Because agile processes co-exist alongside existing projects and releases, there is complete visibility into how tasks were executed and all software assets are visible within a common repository. StarTeam Agile eliminates the need for manual synchronisation. By breaking down the barriers between builds, tasks, user stories and requirements, StarTeam Agile is giving developers and their managers full confidence in their releases like never before.
StarTeam has truly entered the enterprise agile arena with a unique take on combined change and agile managment. The successful beta program was tremendously valuable to ensure we are delivering on the needs of Enterprise Agile teams. Thanks to all those customers who helped shape the definitive agile solution for StarTeam!
