Real-time planning with work items for all roles

One of the main purposes of planning is to ensure that everyone will know when the project is complete. Tracking project completion involves understanding the scope of the project, often specified in a requirements collection as well as the scope of the test effort, often defined in a test plan. By linking requirements with development and test plans teams obtain a more accurate view of the amount of effort involved in the project. Work items can be used by all team members to track their work whether it applies to elaborating requirements, developing software or designing test cases and test scripts. Tasks are easy to update, status is reflected directly in plan, and all team members participate in keeping the plan up to date.

Lifecycle Traceability

Lifecycle traceability establishes relationships between software artifacts. By creating relationships between artifacts, your team can answer the more interesting about project status. Thanks to the Jazz integration architecture and the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration specifications, linking artifacts across repositories is easy. Lifecycle queries, filters and views help you identify coverage gaps, assess completeness of related artifacts, and make fully informed decisions about where to focus your efforts.

In-context collaboration

Collaborate with your team members online, at any time, regardless of geographic location. By conducting online reviews & approvals, or capturing threaded discussions directly on an artifact, teams create a collective understanding of what is most important to their stakeholders. With link previews and feeds team members have information at their fingertips and the power to stay on top of current events.

Development Intelligence

The ability to make fact based decisions is born from dashboards reflecting team activity and trends. With a shared data warehouse, all team members have access to the same data. Team members can use dashboards, dashboard mashups, personal dashboards, or a dashboard mini along with a catalog of widgets for displaying a wide variety of information using out of box and custom reports and queries.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement is an ongoing effort by a team to optimize their performance. The key to successful continuous improvement is a solution that can not only provide incremental improvement as the team works, but also one that can facilitate break through improvement through automation and reuse of best practices. All team members can contribute to incremental improvement through the use of easy to customize plans, dashboards, queries and work item templates. Continuous improvement can be as simple as creating a template for test plans, test cases, work items, or lifecycle projects that is reused over and over to achieve breakthroguh improvement across an organization. And of course, continuous improvement can include changes to process specifications that define work item types, state transitions and rules that are enacted by the tool to guide the team.
