TCS Launches Jile™ 2.0 to Support Large Scale Agile Planning and Delivery
Tata Consultancy Services’ Latest Version of Jile Enables Enterprises Adopt Agile for Delivery of Large Systems with Complex Sub-Products, Accelerate Innovation and Build Business Agility
NEW YORK | MUMBAI, January 2, 2019: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, recently launched Jile™ 2.0, a new major release of Jile, its 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. “Scaling Agile to enterprise levels is still out of reach for many... [it] requires teams to apply Lean and Agile principles all the way from strategic planning to product portfolios to products and to actual work in Agile development teams,” said Diego Lo Giudice, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. Jile integrates product management activities, such as visioning, strategic planning, and roadmapping, into Agile development, thus aligning the execution with the business strategy. Existing users can readily access the enhanced capabilities and added features of the latest release.
“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.”
Jile, a product offering from Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, is the first Agile DevOps product on cloud to help enterprises in building and shipping reliable software faster to market. Jile instills a sense of purpose in every Agile team who don't just build products, but want to create real world change. Visit us at https://www.jile.io for more information.
