CollabNet, an agile application lifecycle management (agile ALM) in the cloud, has released ScrumWorks Pro 4.5, an update to 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 an array of new reporting capabilities.

When purchased as a hosted service, ScrumWorks Pro 4.5 provides enterprises with instant access for new team members, upgrades in minutes, and the industry’s highest availability for anytime, anywhere access while eliminating the software, hardware, and administration investment costs associated with on-site installations.

The new version of ScrumWorks Pro includes 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 reporting tools help organizations to track R&D hours, to work more effectively under fixed budgets or fixed schedules, and to more accurately forecast release and iteration milestones.

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