Software plays a dominant role in today‟s business, regardless of the vertical market or core competency. Every organization must be able to guarantee high quality, working software to properly position and deliver its products to the market. Software does not run the business, working software runs the business. Now more than ever, software is a critical component of winning the competition. To meet the expectations of customers and shareholders alike, businesses must be able to deliver high-quality, working software. As software transforms the world of business, all companies creating software must transform their own ability to create and manage software.
A well-planned and maintained release is the basis for a successful software delivery. Changing circumstances, such as customer requirements modifications, changes in resources and capacity, or adjusted estimates, affect release progress. Therefore, release planning is not restricted to the beginning of the release. It is rather an ongoing process of adjusting to address the changing circumstances. HP Project Planning and Tracking (PPT) provides the means to increase time-to-market and beef up quality of products. Capabilities include defining and monitoring project milestones, dynamic health assessment, and automatic project updates with respect to milestones. With PTT in place, you ensure your software is delivered on time and on quality while monitoring the progress at any point of time.
