Abstract

The software industry has always been challenged to deliver quality products to the market at cheaper price, faster pace and better quality year after year. One recent trend to address this challenge has been to build products using agile methodologies. Implementation of agile methodologies require the teams to have the right tools, processes and metrics to measure the success of the processes. The software components of this project are an agile project tracking tool, a process transformation tool and a reporting tool. Project tracking tool will be monitoring the objectives in the various projects and helping company to achieve the target of on time delivery. The process transformation tool will be designed and developed to transform the high level Companywide metrics into team level metrics which will be helping us to follow the process and its measures for a quality end product. This tool will manage to ease the access to various portals & tools and collect required metrics which are project related by gathering those necessary metrics and aggregating them via this tool. The reporting tool will be a breakthrough to track the effort of the employees. Employees can view where and when they have given their efforts in a simpler way using this reporting tool rather than wasting time to count it every week. The tool will also be helpful to the managers to track the effort count and to know which individual is working on which phase of any project.
