VersionOne Fall Release includes several new and enhanced features that provide insight and traceability across the entire software lifecycle and support leading methodologies like the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), including: Program Increment (PI) Objectives and Program Predictability Reporting; Delivery at a Glance visibility at the Portfolio Item level; Strategic Theme Reporting and Visualization; Continuum Package Metrics; Bugzilla 5.0 integration and more.
For organizations practicing SAFe – or any large-scale agile initiative – PI Objectives provide visibility into the specific business value being planned in each Program Increment and an assessment of what value was actually delivered. The agreed upon PI Objectives help ensure alignment between the development teams and the business so all understand the goals driving the plans and the relative importance of them.
The Program Predictability Report uses the PI Objectives to compare the potential business value to the actual business value delivered for each Program Increment. The report gives you the ability to review each team’s performance on delivering the established objectives within each PI and assess the performance for each PI as a whole.
