Give project management flexibility. aqua supports agile procedure models such as SCRUM and offers the flexibility of planning and implementation that state of the art IT projects require. Plan on the SCRUM planning board together with your team, shift user stories on the virtual sprint board and track the progress more easily and securely using burn down charts rather than post-its on a whiteboard. aqua even makes SCRUM accessible for teams at different locations.
aqua has an agile board for individual SCRUM processes. The board enables you to combine your entire release planning using a waterfall model with an agile development such as SCRUM. While doing so, the entire development process takes place using a single tool – aqua. Thus, the product owner retrieves all his elements in a prioritised backlog and can furthermore compile his user stories. The user storyboard can be individually customized according to company processes. Every change on the sprint board is visible in reporting in real time.
The aqua project planner is the perfect tool for time planning and allocation of activities within your project. Capitalize on the well-structured presentation of Gantt diagrams when working on project plans. In this way, you can keep track of the progress of the revisions of requirements, tests or defects. Enabling the fastest reactions and permanent project transparency regarding costs, budget and schedule.
Project management is fully incorporated into aqua; from project generation, via implementation, allocation of resources up to compilation of project plans including expenditure estimates and risk assessments. As project resources are always scarce, you can immediately recognise whether sufficient resources are available for your project by means of the cross-project capacity utilization. Thus, it is even easier to plan your projects.
By scheduling the project hours you can also define a project budget in the planning phase. By the offsetting entry of project hours completed you can tell if you are still within the planned framework.
