Method Park launches Stages 7.5
Value Stream Mapping
One highlight is a new feature for mapping value streams. Value streams capture the tangible value of processes, while process models describe the related details. Stages 7.5 generates work products that serve as a connection between these two layers.
Another new feature is scroll and zoom for process visualization to ease the handling of very detailed processes. Similar to Google Maps or MapQuest, users comfortably scroll through the entire process landscape. They can model processes centrally and reference them with any number of activities.
Support for heterogeneous organizations
Stages 7.5 manages processes centrally on a single Stages server and significantly minimizes the manual effort for process administration in large, heterogeneous organizations.
The new Stages version also offers interfaces to various tools. The interface to PTC Integrity, for instance, allows users direct access to project documents, templates, and checklists in PTC Integrity. Also, user feedback can be stored directly in the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Manager, PTC Integrity Lifecycle Manager, Redmine, and Jira Cloud.
