What to Expect in our Bi-Weekly Live Product Demonstrations! Part 1 of 3

Twice a week we stream an hour long live product demo that provides a high level overview of the application.  We encourage and want all the demos to be highly interactive so feel free to ask any questions you may have.  The demo consists of a moderator and a presenter who work in conjunction to ensure all questions being asked are answered.

These demos occur on Tuesdays at 11am EST and Thursdays at 4pm EST.

The presenter will provide a brief demonstration of how VersionOne can help you and your Team throughout the software development lifecycle.  VersionOne provides an Agile planning and management software that affords visibility to various stakeholders across multiple Teams and Projects.  From idea to software delivery we help organizations scale their Agile initiatives faster, easier, and smarter.

The live product demonstration gives the audience a good understanding of the iterative lifecycle that VersionOne supports.  Below is a high level outline of the demonstration and what areas are usually covered:

  • Product Planning
    • Here we discuss how the Product Owner has several ways to organize their Backlog.  This is where they’re going to do activities such as capture, prioritize, and obtain estimates for their Backlog items.
      • Areas covered:
        • Centralized Backlog
        • Ranking of the Backlog
        • Capturing the Backlog (import, inline, etc)
        • Links and Attachments
        • A dive into Epics and Feature Groups
        • Product Owner visibility on impediments that the team is facing

Once the Product Owner is done with the organization of the Backlog, he or she will be ready to…

  • Prepare for a Release (Release Planning – which is an optional step in VersionOne)
    • Here the Product Owner will take the Backlog they just organized, and select a smaller more manageable chunk to schedule into Releases.
      • Areas covered:
        • Relationship of Child Projects to Parent Projects
        • Visibility into the Project Tree/Hierarchy to understand Parent Child relationships
        • Scheduling work into a Release
        • A dive into the Release Forecasting tool which allows a user to play around with various what if scenarios.

Once the items have been scheduled into a Release, we’re ready to start focus on the Team activities which start with Sprint Planning.
