What's New in the All-in-One Agile Suite

What's New in the All-in-One Agile Suite

  
I'm very proud to announce the availability of the new All-in-One Agile Suite, a complete unified solution to address the full life cycle of delivering and managing rich web business applications, based on agile methods.

The All-in-One Agile Suite includes two major components: the Agile Platform, an on-premise solution that equips IT with all the required tools to integrate, assemble, deploy and change web applications, and the Agile Network, an on-demand solution that offers all the tools needed to effectively scope, size, manage and track agile projects and address continuous business change.

To learn more about the new and exciting features of this release, you can explore in detail the attached "What's New" file, and keep in touch to watch the live demos videos we will be posting during the next few days.

Hope you enjoy,

Manuel Dias

As part of our goal to continuously improve our products’ quality, let me share with you the latest enhancements that we have made on the Agile Platform 4.2 Editions:

1. Web Services in Basic Edition - In response to a large number of field requests for supporting web services (exposure and consumption) in every edition of the Agile Platform, the Basic edition can now expose web services, meaning that you can easily connect to external systems, either to consume external web services or to expose your own web services, without having to create extensions or other custom adapters. The Agile Platform takes care of generating, deploying, and publishing standard web services for you.

2. Increase from 5 to 25 Agile Platform Logins in Professional Edition - The number of Service Center users has been increased from 5 to 25, in order to comply with a few more demanding scenarios, such as Team rotation. In these cases, even with a relatively small team, the number of logins required is higher than what previously existed for the Professional edition.

How to take advantage of these changes?
If you are running the Agile Platform 4.2, Basic or Professional Editions, please contact our Technical Support, to request a new license. This new license will immediately grant you access to these functionalities, with no impact in any of your existing applications or in your licensing contract.


If you need more details on the Agile Platform Editions please download the editions datasheet.


Cheers,

Manuel Dias
