xProcess: Agile Planning Product Released under Open Source

xProcess, for project management and process improvement, focuses particularly on agile and priority-driven approaches. The preconfigured processes, eg. Scrum, FDD, Prince2, Unified, can be tailored. Gantt/Burndowns/target status are continually updated.

One of the most innovative project management and process improvement solutions to emerge in recent years, xProcess, has today been officially released under open source license. xProcess allows users to define project management processes (for example task patterns, artifacts, gateways and workflows) and then run live projects while monitoring targets, deliveries and process compliance. Agile methods for software development such as Scrum, FDD and variants of Unified Process are particularly well supported by the technology, which provides priority-driven ordering of activities and resource balancing. The free download of the product includes pre-configured processes for Scrum and other methods. ... read more

xProcess: Scrum and FDD configurations

xProcess, for project management and process improvement, focuses particularly on agile and priority-driven approaches. The preconfigured processes, eg. Scrum, FDD, Prince2, Unified, can be tailored. Gantt/Burndowns/target status are continually updated.

Updates are now available for both the Scrum and FDD processes in xProcess, the open source process and project management environment.

Customised processes for development (or other) projects can be defined in xProcess and live projects subsequently planned and monitored. However it is useful to start from one of the predefined processes now available rather than building customised processes from scratch. The two most popular xProcess configurations, Scrum and FDD, are continually enhanced as preferred ways of working are discovered by users. You can access the processes by downloading xProcess and importing the configuration you require. Alternatively, those wishing to contribute to the base definition can join the open source project concerned with these methods. Contact support@openxprocess.com for further details.

xProcess Web Server now available

With the release on SourceForge of xProcess 3.0.3 (beta) this week, Ivis has also made the xProcess Web Server available. Installing this software on a suitable server enables participants on projects to access their tasks, estimates and hours directly through a browser. This simplifies the job of updating task status day by day and ensures that project gantt and burndown charts display the most update status and forecasts.

First Beta Release of xProcess v3 on SourceForge

The initial beta release of xProcess v3 was made available by Ivis Technologies today, show-casing the new architecture and many new features of the process and project management environment. The xProcess project moved to the open source hosting site SourceForge earlier this month and downloads of the released version (2.9) have been growing steadily ever since. Releasing the binaries for xProcess v3 is the next stage towards the full open source release expected within the next few weeks. Andy Carmichael, Managing Director of XprocessEurope Ltd, commented "We're delighted Ivis has released this early view of the xProcess v3 product, giving our users and evaluators a chance to see the latest capabilities of the product."
