HP Discover: A View Through Project and Portfolio Management Tinted Glasses

We came, we saw, we conquered. HP Discover was, as always, a spectacular event. The presentations were well intended, the customer interactions incredible, the partner support amazing, the Venetian beautiful , Las Vegas hot and the 80’s music rocking. After months and months of planning, these three days always feel like they go by in the blink of an eye.  Before our heads stop spinning we wanted to put fingers to keys and invite you to take a look at Discover, through our Project and Portfolio Management tinted glasses.

Agile Methodology in ALM - new agile taskboard

Update #1 from the HP Agility blogger event.  While I typically stay focused on PPM and the strategic challenges of project and portfolio management, I'm going to go off topic a bit to share something I just saw that was very interesting.


One of the challenges many organizations face is when they have multiple development methodologies (waterfall, agile, etc) all working together.  It can be very hard to gain insight and track the status of how things are progressing.  If you’re focused on agile development methodologies and automating the processes – you really should check out the new update that was just announced in our ALM 11 suite - The next version of the Agile Accelerator and the new "Agile Taskboard", which gives the agile team a very natural work environment that empowers the team. You should check it out.


Here’s a link to the press release , and specifically the Agile Accelerator data sheet where you can see a screenshot of the taskboard.
