Polarion Solutions for Agile Software Development

Next Steps

Best of Breed Templates, Processes and Reports for enterprise development with Scrum or any Agile process

Agile methods took the spotlight in software development and product engineering in 2001 with the advent of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. Today, with ever-increasing competition and shrinking resources, more and more companies, even in highly regulated industries, are going with Agile methods like Extreme Programming (XP), SCRUM, and Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM). The key to success is having the right tool to keep you Agile and satisfy the regulators.

  • You must comply with regulations like ISO 26262, FDA 21 CFR Part 820 or IEC 62304.
  • You must meet standards like CMMI, SPICE, etc. to achieve transparency in globally distributed environments.
  • You're required to demonstrate diligence in Corporate Governance for shareholders, regulators, et al.
  • Requirements Management, Engineering and Test Management are key for time-to-market and success.

"Polarion adopted the Scrum process years ago and it has helped us develop products transparently and predictably. So far I haven't seen a better Scrum implementation in practice than in our R&D, and I'm convinced that using the same tool we sell to our customers daily, and sharing our ongoing experience and knowledge with customers by embedding it to the releases, is a major factor in Polarion's success. "

Nick Entin, Polarion’s VP R&D, Certified Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner

>"Polarion's performance on the Technology scale is impressive, particularly in ... enterprise Agile where they score 100%."
