When we were developing SoftAgile™ and SoftALM®, we faced same challenge as other agile tool makers. Namely creating a tool that is easy to navigate around. As such this is number one complaint about present day agile tools.
Turns out, agile as a development methodology has pretty good depth and thus to add or view data, user have to go deeper in menu. This problem gets exasperated when you add other ALM modules such as product definition and quality management.
This understanding led us to realize that instead of giving a multi-level menu, why don't we give a menu map that essentially provides the flow of application. Of course we made it clickable to allow a single click to go to those deeper views in the applications.
It is a combination of agile project dashboard integrated with SoftAgile™ workflow as shown below:
We think when you integrate project management with lifecycle attributes such as backlog management, test and bug management, along with tracing code, one can end up with a pretty large system. DashFlow™ clearly is an easy way to handle such complexity!!
