Danube Releases ScrumWorks Pro 4

Expanded features will allow the most complex development environments to scale Scrum

Danube Technologies, Inc., the leader in project management tools and training for the Scrum methodology, today announced that ScrumWorks(R) Pro 4, the latest release of the only enterprise-capable tool designed exclusively to reinforce the principles of the Scrum framework, is now available for purchase and upgrade. New features added to this release were driven by customer feedback and address the growing demands of enterprise customers. With release 4, large groups organized to meet complex development needs now have a flexible system to model features and milestones across multiple development groups.

"As the popularity of Scrum continues to grow, so has the demand for a project management tool that is sophisticated enough to scale for the largest, most complex Scrum development environments," said Victor Szalvay, Danube CTO and the Product Owner of ScrumWorks Pro. "This latest release gives users a powerful combination of functionality and flexibility to effectively model features and milestones across multiple related development groups."

New to ScrumWorks Pro 4:

  • Program Management. Coordinate multiple related development groups with cross-cutting releases and feature goals. Track through to completion with high-level roll-ups of progress in a single cohesive interface.
  • High-level Feature Decomposition with Epics. Epics are the stated high-level features or goals associated with any milestone. Define Epics and track progress at the project or program level.
  • Release Planning View. The release planner view provides a focused, high-level perspective of a release milestone. User stories are grouped by Epics and progress is front-and-center with embedded roll-up reports.
  • Flexible Modeling of Development Organizations. New Program capabilities in release 4 are flexible enough to accommodate and model complex structures such as shared component projects - where a single project group supplies core components to multiple end-products.
  • Enterprise Reporting. Track feature and release milestone progress across multiple products. Forecast completion and compare progress of contributing products in a Program release. Monitor the scope of features at the program level along with progress breakdown.
