Top 4 Reasons to Try HPE Agile Manager Today!
By: Matt Angerer
Let’s face it, business moves at the speed of light and you can’t always hire local talent to fulfill operational needs. Niche IT talent is hard-to-find and organizations are often pushed into the position of managing a decentralized remote workforce. If you’re practicing Agile development, this doesn’t bode well for co-locating your team into a “war room” with a whiteboard, sticky notes, and daily stand-up meetings. Although co-location has been the ideal situation in my experience, the reality is that organizations require a common platform that unites your team, providing real-time 360-degree visibility into tasks, metrics, and progress.
We know it can be slightly intimidating when evaluating a new software tool. For that reason, we created an HPE Agile Manager 101 training video (available below) for your team to wet their feet and ease into the features and capabilities of AgM. Before you check out the video, here is our Top 4 Reasons for Trying HPE Agile Manager Today:
1. The inability to co-locate teams from across the globe poses a significant challenge to organizations interested in scaling Agile. The drag-and-drop feature board, story board, and task board built into Agile Manager enables easy release and sprint planning, task allocation, and capacity management across decentralized teams and individuals.
2. Understanding the flow of work and the entire project landscape has never been easier than it is today with HPE Agile Manager. As a product owner, you can truly see “the forest through the trees” with easy-to-understand task and planning boards. You can also use these boards to quickly spot potential issues or bottlenecks that may impact your sprint timelines.
3. Continuous delivery and automation is all about real-time feedback. The feedback loops you have in place can make or break the success of an Agile project. The highly customizable dashboards, metrics, and KPIs provide your scrum master and product owner with the feedback and intelligence necessary to pivot when necessary.
4. Eliminate the “black hole” phenomena with advanced development analytics that aggregates source code and build information. Never catch yourself “wondering” what developer touched a defect fix last, or why problems continue to occur around the same feature set. With embedded Application Lifecycle Intelligence (ALI), you can drive accountability across your teams. Peer down to the granular level and surface meaningful insights into application changes, quickly.
