Rally Software Wins Fourth Consecutive Jolt Award
BOULDER, Colo., March 18, 2009 - Rally Software Development Corp.®, the leader in Agile application lifecycle management (ALM), today announced it has been awarded its fourth consecutive Jolt award. Rally Enterprise received the Jolt Productivity Award in the Project Management Tools category. Rally was previously awarded the Jolt Product Excellence Award in the Project Management Tools category in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
"We are so proud to receive our fourth consecutive Jolt award," said Tim Miller, CEO of Rally. "Rally is constantly striving to improve our products and services in order for our customers to be successful. This award further validates our efforts to make distributed development organizations faster and leaner by dramatically cutting the time and effort needed to deliver their software."
Rally Enterprise 2008.5, the specific award-winning product, leverages the first programmable Internet platform for Agile lifecycle management to give teams infinite ways to tailor ALM to their needs. Increasingly, multi-team development organizations find that they cannot adapt or combine their role-based tools to deliver working, fully-tested features in short cycles. Rally Enterprise and its Internet platform enable the open collaboration that drives enterprise Agile success. Organizations can create and deploy their own customizations to better manage their unique workflow or reporting needs - all with zero infrastructure costs.
The Rally platform delivers three critical capabilities:
- Open web services API's and programming toolkits to build integrations with other systems, or create custom charts, views and mashups using readily available web components
- The ability to embed outside applications into Rally, and allow Rally screens to appear in other applications
- The opportunity to share and leverage over 50 integrations, applications and mashups with Rally's customer community on Agile Commons at www.agilecommons.org
- For the past 18 years, the Jolt Awards have been presented annually to showcase products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. The Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards are judged by a respected panel of judges consisting of industry insiders, columnists, and technology leaders. The Jolt Awards ceremony took place on March 11, 2009, at the SD West 2009 Conference & Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
