Goda Software last month released Scrum Spec 10.0, a project management tool specifically tailored for Agile development. It uses a customizable graphic interface to centrally manage Agile components such as releases, sprints and artifacts such as user stories, requirements, features, test cases and bugs, according to a company news release.
Along with the Professional edition, Scrum Spec 10.0 comes in a free Basic version that allows up to three licensed users. The free edition lacks the document management and customization functionality of the higher-end edition and also imposes a maximum database size of 2GB. The pro edition has no limits for users or database size. It is priced according to the number of floating clients, which can be installed on any number of computers, with only the server being locked to one machine. Pricing ranges from $1,300 for five licenses to $12,000 for 100 licenses.
An on-demand option in which Scrum Spec 10.0 is installed on Goda’s servers costs $40 per user per month with a minimum subscription period of three months.
The tool includes functionality such as: inline data editing, access control, import/export features and graphical reports with data analysis capability, according to company sources.
