Ivar Jacobson International Announces New Version of EssWork

    Stockholm, Sweden, April 19, 2010 (ots/PRNewswire) - Ivar Jacobson International today is releasing a new version of EssWork which provides a "smart" framework for developing, browsing and executing software development practices. New features in EssWork 3.0 enhance and simplify an organization's ability to roll-out large-scale agile software development by giving software teams process guidelines that efficiently ensure software project success.

    "Software development is seeing radical changes as new processes and methodologies, principally of the Agile variety, are being adopted, as well as improved automation that is bringing progress in tooling," said Michael Azoff, principal research analyst with Ovum Research. "Overall, Ovum is impressed with the EssWork and Essential Practices solution, which makes IJI stand out from the many other consultancies supporting software development. Organizations looking to transition their processes and methodologies, or address specific pain points in their way of working will benefit from IJI's approach."

    EssWork 3.0 can easily capture successful ways of working between projects and document good patterns so positive behaviour is replicated. "The aim is to reduce development costs and deliver projects predictably and with better quality," said Azoff.

    With EssWork 3.0, new role-based entry points provide more personalized support. Now users can view and gain quick access to relevant information based on their responsibilities. Enhanced views and navigability facilitate easier access to the precise information a user requires at any point in time. Architecure improvements aid in large scale deployment for organizations that standardize on EssWork and the Essential Practices. To further support distribution, EssWork can now be internationalized and practice guidance can be developed for any language. EssWork 3.0 comes pre-loaded with IJI's simplified Essential Practices, EssUP and the IJI software development kernel.

    EssWork trial version is available online for 90 days for non-commercial use. Continued use of the full EssWork 3.0 software requires a support agreement priced at $200 per user.
