Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Visual Management – SwiftEASe has visual Work Boards where you can model each level of SAFe. You can set up WIP limits on columns, create Cards, define links between Cards and Boards, and highlight issues using Flags, Risks, Alerts, and others. The Dependency Board allows you to track dependencies across teams. It also has Dashboards as per SAFe BOK recommendations, so you can monitor your operational execution while viewing medium and long term improvements.
- Configurable Tools – The Lean and Agile tool allows users to create configurable hierarchies that can span multiple boards. You can create your own configurable work item types and define parent-child relationships. You can then use these relationships to define links between Cards in Work Boards. You can also track the status of the hierarchy with multiple visual cues on their parent-level Cards. With visual drag-and-drop, you can define agile release trains (ART) and teams that make up an ART. With the shared resources feature, you can plan resources flexibly and allow team members to be part of multiple teams and ARTs, if needed.
- Scrum/Kanban Support, Lean Metrics, Integrations, and more – SwiftEASe supports users whether they use Scrum or Kanban or both. You can define Program Increments (PI) and Sprints, perform PI planning activities, generate burndown for Scrum teams, or CFD and Cycle Time plots for Kanban teams. Lean analytics can provide teams insight into their delivery capability or process bottlenecks. Then they can make changes to improve their flow, throughput, and predictability. With SwiftSync technology, it can integrate with other Agile tools such as Jira, CA Agile Central, VersionOne, and others. Native mobile apps for iOS and Android are also available to see Work Boards and Cards while away from the desktop.
