Rally Software Launches Editions For Agile Software Life Cycle Management

Rally Addresses the Exact Needs of Both Small Projects and Distributed, Multi-Team Programs

BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Rally Software Development Corp., the leading on-demand provider of Agile software life cycle management solutions, today announced the availability of Rally Agile Team and Rally Agile Pro, two distinct editions that give software development teams the visibility and collaboration needed to deliver high-value software in short, rapid iterations. The new offerings continue the advancement of Rally's on-demand applications for helping software-driven organizations formalize, manage and scale Agile development practices -- one of the fastest growing trends in the software industry.

"The launch of Rally Agile Team and Agile Pro editions are in response to the continued momentum and adoption of Agile development practices we see firsthand with our growing customer base of more than 2,000 subscribers," said Tim Miller, CEO of Rally. "All Agile teams try to deliver customer value incrementally in small batches rather than in big-bang waterfall releases. A small team of 10 or less that is piloting Agile often has simpler communication and coordination requirements than a larger or more experienced Agile organization. Rally's new editions make it easy for companies of all sizes to get started with Agile and will grow with them as their needs change."

Rally Agile Team enables a single team of 10 developers and testers to communicate and manage their iterations more effectively by giving them basic project management, test management and defect tracking features without complexity. It offers a specific set of project management features designed to assist smaller teams, or initial teams within a larger organization, gain the experience, visibility and confidence needed to succeed and eventually scale Agile development methodologies.

Rally Agile Pro supports all roles and activities in the software life cycle with added capabilities for release planning and tracking, requirements management, resource planning and program management. In addition, Rally Agile Pro is fully customizable, and uses Web services that integrate Rally with the company's preferred development, test and build environments to provide seamless collaboration and visibility across projects and teams.

Rally continues to add new functionality to its core technology platform on a regular basis. New enhancements to both Rally Agile Pro and Rally Agile Team include:

    * New User Story requirement type - this lightweight requirement can stand
      alone or be a dependent to features or use cases

    * The ability to add custom fields to requirements, test cases and defects
      with enhanced custom views and filters that control information layout,
      grouping and ordering

    * New inline editing capabilities using Ajax technology is now available
      on requirements, test cases, defects and scheduling cards

    New features that support integration for Rally Agile Pro only are:

    * Enhanced Web Services API for both SOAP & REST (Beta) integrates Rally
      with IDEs, automated test, build and SCM systems by allowing for the
      search, create, read, update and delete of Rally objects from these

"If you are moving your organization toward Agile development, Rally is a great place to start. Their blend of tools, support, training, reference materials and consulting services provide everything you need for your organization to be successful," said Skip Angel, vice president of development/CTO for Integrated Systems, Inc. "The launch of Rally Agile Team and Agile Pro illustrate how responsive Rally is to our needs and how in-touch they are to the realities of making Agile development a success for customers of all types and sizes."

Rally Agile Team and Rally Agile Pro are available immediately. Pricing for Rally Agile Pro is $65 per month, per user. Rally Agile Team Edition can be purchased on Rally's Web site for a special promotion price of $995 for five users for six months. Visit www.rallydev.com for details.
