Agile Add-ons in SharePoint--Do Any Exist?

  Asked By: Tapasvi    Date: Sep 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1680

Looking at SharePoint, one can easily see that it is not well suited for teams utilizing the agile framework for, in my case, development software applications. It can't even compete with something like Rally Software. That said though, do ANY add-ons exist that can at least partially bridge the gap with the true agile tools for teams that only have SharePoint available to manage their scrum efforts? I've asked some of the Microsoft SharePoint folks here in Northern Virginia, and they couldn't think of any add-ons!

I would just be regurgitating a "bing" search if I were to give you any specific add-ons....but I would encourage you to reach out to SharePoint MVP Andrew Woodward at 21app.com:

He specializes in SharePoint Agile Developement - and if anyone know it will be him.

Thanks for the intro :)

To answer the question specifically, I found the ability to do real agile  projects in sharepoint  disappointing. I tried very hard to make the out of the box functionality work but ended up using another solution like Version One.

But this also lead me to take time out and invest some effort into, as you say, briding the gap. And to fill the gap we have produced 21Scrum. There is a beta version you can try now http://www.21apps.com/21scrum/announcing-21scrum/

And we will be releasing production version on 21st June http://www.21Scrum.com

I would love for you to feedback on this so we can make sure the solution is as good as it can be and have set up a community here http://getsatisfaction.com/21apps.

Please get in touch if I can be of any help.
