Oracle is making its popular APEX low-code development platform available as a managed cloud service that developers can use to build data-driven enterprise applications quickly and easily.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) launched Jile 4.0, a major release of its on-the-cloud enterprise Agile DevOps platform that enables software teams to manage, automate and measure the end-to-end software delivery value stream from ideation to deployment.
With Jile 4.0, teams can choose an Agile Way of Working (WoW) template that best fits their delivery needs, and then customize their WoW by turning applications on or off from a list of more than 50 applications and features. The WoW templates in Jile include Scrum, Kanban, Disciplined Agile, Large Scale Scrum, Agile Portfolio, and more. This flexibility provides an adaptive and tailored way for organizations to adopt Agile at scale across the enterprise, and digitally transform into a Business 4.0 enterprise.
"Jile 4.0 helps organizations of all sizes—in any stage of their transformation journey—embrace risk to become a Business 4.0 enterprise. Jile was developed with the customer in mind, knowing that every software development and delivery team is different and needs a customizable solution. Jile 4.0 has a flexible design that allows software teams to tailor the solution to meet their needs—whether it is by selecting a specific Way of Working or utilizing either a project- or product-centric delivery model," said Vijayalakshmi Gopal, Business Head – Jile, TCS.
"Organizations today are going through an evolutionary transformation starting with Agile adoption at the team level and gradually scaling across multiple teams that are building large software solutions," said Melinda Ballou, Research Director, Agile Application Lifecycle Management, Quality and Portfolio Strategies, IDC Research. "Enterprise Agile planning and delivery tools, such as Jile, support this transformation by providing multiple Ways of Working to meet teams' software needs and, most importantly, to help deliver valuable software quickly to customers."
Jile 4.0 is an Agile DevOps platform that enables organizations to choose their Agile WoW and follow a fail-fast, minimum viable product approach to engineering, and a product-centric approach to business. Product-centric delivery involves enterprises moving away from project-centric delivery and reorganizing their teams based on their core value streams and products, therefore delivering continuous value to their customers.
