Successful companies have multiple teams working in parallel, all with shared purpose and understanding of company goals. To keep up with accelerating development cycles, team coordination is critical. Development team members need visibility to the most up-to-date requirements and product decisions to ensure they’re satisfying customer needs. Product Managers, Business Analysts, and the rest of the company need visibility to the work in progress, and opportunities to adapt based on new information. With little room for error, a tight communication feedback loop is essential.
Using Jama and the Integrations Hub powered by Tasktop, the business and development can stay in sync without breaking their workflow in Jama or VersionOne. Developers track active backlog items and sprints in VersionOne. Jama provides cross-functional teams a place to openly discuss customer needs, manage changes, track decisions and capture approvals on project plans. At any time in the process, business and development team members can collaborate in Jama on key decisions, issues or questions affecting the product and sync relevant data to VersionOne in the form of future backlog item updates, comments, and status updates. VersionOne users can send status updates, questions and comments to Jama to clarify requirements and share progress.
Key Benefits Include:
- Connect strategic decisions between business and development
- Continuously sync business requirements with Agile backlog items
- Maintain Agile processes in development, and increase visibility to the rest of the organization
- As changes happen, notify those impacted in both tools
- Manage complex portfolios of products and projects
How it Works:
Jama’s integration with VersionOne, powered by Tasktop, creates that continuous feedback loop. The ongoing and automated syncing of data gives everyone confidence that development activities map back to customer expectations and priorities. This integration is an ideal solution for organizations practicing a hybrid approach to Agile, where Agile development teams work in real-time with stakeholders and formally document requirements to meet regulatory compliance and contractual commitments.
