WASHINGTON, July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ThoughtWorks, a global technology company, today announced that the company will provide the first ever preview of Mingle Plus 2.0 at the Agile 2015 conference, August 3 - 7, in Washington, DC. Mingle Plus 2.0 takes a fresh approach to enterprise-level agility. Its team-centric philosophy empowers teams to work independently while providing management with clear visibility and dependency tracking to enable data-driven decision-making.
Mingle Plus provides capabilities for cross-project collaboration and program management in addition to all the features of the core Mingle product. Other features include:
- Dependency tracking/planning and portfolio management to better serve enterprises looking to increase agility
- Flexible and framework-agnostic to accommodate custom workflows
- Mingle Plus 2.0 is offered on-site or in the cloud and includes robust and responsive support services.
- Allows agile teams to work autonomously: teams choose whatever workflow works best for them using Mingle's Kanban or Scrum templates or their own board format.
- Mingle Plus 2.0's Dependency Board visualizes cross-program and cross-team dependencies.
- Teams raise and plan dependencies, but everyone (including program managers) can track real-time progress from inception to delivery.
"In today's increasingly competitive digital marketplace, organizations that relentlessly pursue time-to-value are winning. Organizational agility, beyond following a few simple agile practices, is key to that success," says ThoughtWorks managing director Chad Wathington. Mingle's original research, "Prevalence of Agile Practices 2015," surveyed 500+ software professionals and showed that more than 60% of businesses say they need to scale agile. Despite the clear need for scaled agile solutions, waterfall is still the No. 1 practice in organizations with 25 to 500 employees. While current solutions for scaling agile are prescriptive, Mingle believes that for best results, agility needs to thrive at the team level and then scale to an organization.
"Mingle is used by software development teams worldwide, and as with ThoughtWorks, it continues to be at the forefront of agile adaptation and evolution," says Wathington. "Mingle Plus 2.0 brings the values of agile to the enterprise level without sacrificing visibility, flexibility or team productivity. Mingle helps managers give their teams independence while also providing managers the information they need to make data-driven decisions and plan next steps."
ThoughtWorks is a Gold Sponsor of Agile 2015 and will be providing previews of Mingle Plus 2.0 at its booth at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
