Graz, Austria - May 10, 2022. Organizations running agile projects find it increasingly difficult to scale them while simultaneously struggling to keep an eye on all their traditional projects and programs. The new version of ONEPOINT Projects, a leading web-based project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, helps overcome both challenges by integrating support for the Scaled Agile Framework® in a new optional module. The new Enterprise Agile Option, initially supporting the Essential SAFe® configuration, enables Agile Release Trains (ARTs) to be executed directly within a hybrid project portfolio. Other new features include practical improvements for program and risk management and for the bidirectional integration of ONEPOINT with Atlassian's Jira.

"SAFe is becoming increasingly popular for managing complex, ongoing development processes," says Dieter Freismuth, CTO of ONEPOINT Projects. "But ARTs often live in silos which is far from ideal. By integrating them into the world of standards-based portfolio management, we can pave the way for a more frictionless agile transition."
ONEPOINT's Essential SAFe® Implementation empowers Release Train Engineers (RTEs) to manage distributed teams more efficiently. The agile teams level is realized using Scrum projects and can be executed in ONEPOINT Projects and Jira. Using an optional connector to SAP®, customers can even integrate the software with their enterprise-wide ERP systems if needed.
