VersionOne Introduces Agile Data Mart for Custom Reporting

New data mart delivers unlimited reporting flexibility

ATLANTA, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- VersionOne, recognized by agile practitioners as the leader in agile management tools, announced today the release of its agile data mart for custom reporting - providing extensive flexibility and insight into development progress and business value. As the market leader in agile project visibility, VersionOne alleviates the pain and effort typically required to build custom reports and dashboards, enabling teams to quickly and easily provide quantitative agile metrics to various stakeholders.

Allowing development teams to easily share project visibility across distributed teams is vital in agile development environments. VersionOne's data mart allows teams to extend this visibility well beyond the standard, pre-defined reports and dashboards typically used. Leveraging existing third-party reporting and analytics tools, teams can define the specific data they'd like to analyze, providing more targeted and actionable business insight to stakeholders throughout the organization. As a result database administrators and developers spend significantly less time and effort creating custom reporting capabilities for stakeholders.

Key Benefits

  • Flexible and easy-to-configure - teams select the data they need, tailoring the solution to meet their unique needs.
  • Easy to get started and use - sample report queries and definitions are provided which can be easily modified.
  • Leverage existing reporting and analytics tools - teams can use any third-party reporting and analytics tool of their choice such as SAP's Crystal Reports and Business Objects, Microsoft's SQL Reporting Service and IBM's Cognos.
  • Optimized for custom agile reporting and analytics - data is organized around core agile activities enabling simple reporting of standard and customer-defined metrics.

"Creating custom agile reports and dashboards has always been a complicated and time consuming activity," said Robert C. Holler, VersionOne President and CEO. "The most popular request on IdeaSpace, our product feedback forum, was to provide customers with a simple way to create their own unique reports and dashboards. With our agile data mart, designed specifically for reporting simplicity, delivering custom reports and dashboards is now quick and easy."

Other Key Release Features:

VersionOne's platform is already the most open, agile development platform available, improving efficiencies and speed-to-market for developers worldwide. As part of the platform, VersionOne provides free, open-source plug-ins for Visual Studio and Eclipse. These plug-ins have been significantly enhanced to provide team members with direct access to view, track, update and close any work items in VersionOne without leaving their integrated development environment (IDE).

Also, VersionOne's integrated ideas management product, V1: Agile Ideas, which is unique among agile lifecycle management platforms, has been enhanced to improve management capabilities for Ideas administrators.
