Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) launched Jile 2.0, a new major release of the company's Agile DevOps product-on-cloud.
The original product, Jile 1.0, launched in August 2018, helped distributed teams (or a `team of teams') easily adopt agile methods for application delivery at scale.
Jile 2.0 takes it a step further, supporting multiple teams of teams plan and deliver large products in various functional areas that the customer sees, uses, and values. With Jile's new large product layer, distributed agile teams can manage synchronized, incremental delivery of large systems involving complex sub-products, across different technology stacks, each with its own product vision, roadmap, and release cycle. As a result, enterprises that develop and manage large IT systems can now embrace Agile and DevOps for their innovation, and gain business agility.
Jile 2.0 is expected to further accelerate adoption of Agile at the enterprise level. Currently, most teams use Agile methods in a limited, IT-specific context.
"With Jile 2.0, large enterprises can embrace Agility in their operational value streams and bring in responsiveness into their delivery," said Vijayalakshmi Gopal, Business Head – Jile, TCS. "The new upgrade ensures simplicity, and includes guidance and near-physical world visualizations through visual radiators, even for large scale Agile adoption. Organizations that adopt enterprise Agile frameworks such as SAFe or LeSS can now leverage Jile to accelerate their business transformation and fuel growth in a Business 4.0 era."
