Ryma Technology Solutions’ Flagship Product – FeaturePlan – forms the central point of the FeaturePlan-VersionOne Connector. In capturing and providing a single system of record for the voice-of-the market within a highly collaborative environment, this solution facilitates product management’s ability to anticipate market demands, cultivate opportunities and innovate products. Using VersionOne, all project stakeholders – including product managers, project managers, developers, product owners and software executives – can easily plan, track and report on new product features as they move through the development cycle via a highly intuitive user interface and multiple dashboards and reports.

“The FeaturePlan-VersionOne Connector facilitates collaboration between product management and software delivery teams to ensure product innovation is based on and supports the right market requirements,” said Rene Bellei, President and CEO at Ryma. “The application connector enables product managers to gain visibility and ongoing development status of product requirements, known as user stories in agile, being managed within the VersionOne Agile project management tool. It also provides visibility to the market-driven requirements managed by the product management community within FeaturePlan.”

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Ryma in announcing the FeaturePlan-VersionOne Connector,” said Robert Holler, CEO of VersionOne. “The solution enables an electronic transfer of requirements from FeaturePlan directly into VersionOne – eliminating the manual entry of user stories and backlog items in VersionOne. Of greatest value for product managers and other executive stakeholders is the visibility they now gain into the development of their product. They can see the progress of each feature and of the overall software release via instant access to visual dashboards and reports, no more guessing if a specific feature has made it into a release or if the release is on time.”

The status of each requirement is automatically synchronized between FeaturePlan and VersionOne. Software delivery teams now have visibility into the value and user benefit of each market requirement helping the team prioritize user stories during the planning of an iteration and release.
