ONEPOINT Projects 19 Reinvents Agile Project Management for Hybrid PPM
New integrated agile component introduces multi-sprint planning and dynamic forecasting
ONEPOINT Projects today launched version 19 of their award-winning hybrid project and portfolio management solution -- featuring an all-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.
Integrated Agile Planning and Controlling
"Our new agile component is an integral part of ONEPOINT's Planning & Controlling Option and as such, enables true hybrid project portfolios for the first time," explained Gerald Aquila, founder & CEO of ONEPOINT. "Agile planning is now also fully integrated with our robust resource management capabilities allowing for automatic velocity calculation and agile resource forecasting."
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.
Kanban-style Sprint-Board & Epics/Stories Breakdown
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.
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.
Timeline & Capacity Reporting
ONEPOINT Projects 19 also comes with many other new features such as a "Timeline" view that enables project and program managers to easily create high-level timelines for management reporting based on their existing project plans. Other areas of improvements include a new capacity analysis view and drag & drop support for uploading file attachments.
The new version is available immediately and can be tested on the US and European cloud servers via visiting www.onepoint-projects.com. In selecting the "Professional" plan to include the Planning & Controlling Option users will have access to the new agile and timeline features.
