Planisware announced today that it has joined the Scaled Agile Partner Network as a Platform Partner. This worldwide network includes transformation and platform providers who help enterprises facilitate and accelerate business results through adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework ® (SAFe ®).

As the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, SAFe helps businesses address the significant challenges of developing and delivering high-quality software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time.

Planisware Enterprise supports Enterprise Agile from Portfolio level all the way down to the Team member levels.

At the Portfolio level, companies can use Planisware to apply funding to their strategic themes, prioritize their portfolio on both Agile and non-Agile work, and organize activities into streams. They can organize major initiatives or work into Agile programs (or Trains in the SAFe framework), prioritize features by using the Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) method and follow progress with the Portfolio Kanban.

At the Project and Team levels, Planisware supports the artefacts of Agile methodologies including features, stories, sprints, and kanbans.
For larger initiatives, Planisware provides the ability to organize large teams (or Release Train in the SAFe Agile Framework), and apply cadence and synchronicity to the work (e.g.: the Program Increment and Program Increment Planning).

Planisware tracks dependencies between features/stories carried out by different teams and provide a consolidated vision of the backlog and progress.

At team and team member level, Planisware provides a complete Agile work environment with the ability to manage teams, allocate stories, track progress of sprints and roll-up consolidated information and metrics. In addition to Planisware own capabilities, a standard interface is available with Jira and RallyDev.

“Working with best-in-class partners like Planisware represents our commitment to helping software and systems-dependent enterprises improve time-to-market, quality, and employee engagement,” said Dean Leffingwell, creator of SAFe and cofounder of Scaled Agile, Inc. “By incorporating SAFe into their solution offering, Planisware is enabling the world’s largest organizations to become more Agile in the marketplace and more competitive in their industry.”
