XSolve has decided to create a tool called DevDash, which is a software project dashboard. This is a fast and simple way to gather all data that make your work in a software project easy, transparent and efficient.
Based on 12-year-long experience with software development, we’ve realized that the most popular project management tools, like Jira, Trello or Asana, have some serious flaws which negatively impact on the process of software development. Many times, our customers complained that they did not have an overall view of the software projects’ realization. Thus, taking into consideration our experience with Agile, Scrum and lean methodology, we’ve decided to build a digital tool that effectively helps our customers to manage the development of their products. This tool is called DevDash – created to provide an instant, wide and clear view of the product development process.
“For me, DevDash is like a car dashboard while driving a car. I instantly and constantly see the most important parameters of my projects. Where they currently are, what is their quality, what the progress looks like in relation to the plan or how the scope of work has changed. It helps me run the company as I see first-hand information and avoid risks. With DevDash I can see which part of a company might go along a bumpy road and where I may help most efficiently”, says Piotr Majchrzak, CEO at XSolve.
What is DevDash?
DevDash is a software project management tool driven by Lean Software Development Principles made to improve communication and transparency between Development Team, Scrum Master, Product Owner and Stakeholders. Most importantly, thanks to this transparency, every decision in the project is based on data which reflects its current state. DevDash helps to maintain balance between code quality and quantity of implemented functionalities. It has its impact on eliminating technical debt in the system, which happens very often in various IT projects. On the other hand, Product Owner has current information about the budget left and the scope of the work carried out which enables him or her to react quickly in the way of keeping up the needs and plan which can be changed at any time.
