Scrum Agile Project Management

Improve Backlog Management with SpiraTeam 5.1

Inflectra has announced the release of SpiraTeam 5.1, the latest version of its award-winning application lifecycle management (ALM) suite. This version of SpiraTeam brings together major enhancements in performance and usability along with the ability to break the project paradigm for the first time. With SpiraTeam 5.1, you can take control of even the most complex programs.

SpiraTeam 5.1 provides users with the ability to have complete traceability between items in different projects, the ability to view integrated program backlogs and the ability to quickly search across all items and projects to make associations.

Cross Project Traceability

SpiraTeam 5.1 lets you create reusable component projects that can be composed together to handle large-scale programs and system of systems. Unlike other tools on the market, you don’t need to manually copy items between projects, you can instead have a single set of shared requirements, test cases and tasks that are used as needed.

Project Planning

SpiraPlan 5.1 includes new program management functionality that lets you plan your agile backlogs across multiple projects with the new project group planning board. These new features let you view the backlog of the entire project at a glance and prioritize work across all of the projects in your program simultaneously.

New Searching Capabilities

Taking advantage in new database free-text indexing capabilities, SpiraTeam v5.1 has a completely redesigned search interface that lets you find information 80% faster than in the previous versions. The new ranking algorithms ensure you get the most appropriate information first time around.

Enhanced Usability

In addition to the new features, we have continued our relentless focus on refining the usability of our products. In SpiraTeam 5.1, we have streamlined the global navigation bar, added support for resizable columns throughout the application and improved the rich text editor to have additional formatting functions.
