ONEPOINT Projects has launched version 19 of their hybrid project and portfolio management (PPM) solution. It features a new, completely integrated agile planning and controlling component. The new version also features a “Timeline” view for live management-level reporting as well as a number of practical resource management improvements.
Key features of the new agile component include a Kanban-style sprint board that allows for drag & drop sprint planning with a strong focus on planning more than one sprint into the future. The sprint board also facilitates sprint capacity optimization by displaying sprint utilization based on allocated story points and calculated velocity. Naturally, agile projects can optionally be linked to Jira projects or versions allowing for real-time integration with the Atlassian tool, as the new agile features are fully compatible with ONEPOINT’s Jira Connector.
Users will also love the interactive WBS-style “Epics” view that shows a breakdown of epics and stories that get automatically crossed off when stories get completed. Other new agile planning and controlling views include a story list and a burndown chart visualizing project or sprint progress over time.
