Otinsoft approaches software development using Scrum (an agile methodology). Scrum offers numerous benefits compared to linear approaches.
To mention a few:
As a Product Owner you define and prioritise the User Stories. The team breaks your stories down into tasks. Otinsoft offers you access to a digital Product Backlog in order to edit, update, and prioritise your stories by means of VivifyScrum. Furthermore, accessing as a Product Owner offers you many constantly up-to-date overviews (burn-down charts, velocity reports, work boards) of the current Sprint and Sprints passed.
While you benefit from form using as Product Owner, the team uses other functionality allowing them to divide tasks between the team members, monitor the progress, assure that code (corresponding to a task or subtask) compiles and checks in. Many of these processes are not directly your concern, but by bridging both ends – you representing the Stakeholders and the team responsible for developing good software – we are able to improve our quality. In case you are not familiar with Scrum or TFS, we are happy to help out and explain more.
