On March 30, 2011 HP hosted an online event called “HP Software Expert Day”. Experts from HP responded 24 hours to questions around Quality Center and ALM raised from the community.
When I skimmed over the questions my eyes stopped at one named “Further development of agile tools”. The author was looking for better agile solutions than those provided today.
The HP expert provided some encouraging words about the future. HP is working on an agile project management module that is targeted for the next major release. Beyond supporting good management of requirements and tests it will also track progress and backlogs with burndown rates.
That sounds promising to me. As HP is pretty late on this I have the hope that it will release finally a cool agile management client which is build on the new REST API, so that it can be used across a variety of platforms.
The information was posted on the HP blog “Quality Center Information and News” on March 30, 2011.
