In August 2018, information technology services (IT) major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) launched Jile 1.0, its agile DevOps product-on-cloud, in an attempt to help distributed teams improve application delivery at scale.
Four years and a pandemic later, the company has rolled out the fifth version of the service -- Jile 5.0 -- as businesses in the hybrid work era hunt for solutions to get their software products up and running.
Jile 5.0 will enable organisations to better align execution with strategy by providing a unified view of portfolios and programmes, helping business stakeholders and teams to collaborate, and accelerating time-to-market for new software, according to a statement.
Through its Lean portfolio budgeting, Jile will further help business stakeholders to make informed investment decisions to achieve targeted business goals.
The new release is available in two editions: a Standard one for medium and large enterprises that are beginning to scale agile practices to multiple team-of-teams, and an Enterprise edition for large enterprises that have mature agile practices and are looking at agility at the business layer.
In addition to the features available in the Standard edition, the Enterprise edition allows teams to track budget allocation versus consumption as well as portfolio, programme, and team performance using customizable dashboards.
“With its intuitive user interface, Jile is easy to learn and enables our customers to embrace industry-proven Agile methods and frameworks across the enterprise and accelerate their growth and transformation journeys. The new release of Jile comes in two editions catering to the needs of organizations at different maturity levels, and helps customers manage their portfolios better to align execution with strategy,” Durga Maruwada, Business Head, Jile, TCS, said.
The Standard and Enterprise editions have a free trial of 30 days for 20 users.
Earlier this week, TCS partnered with OTT streaming platform SonyLIV to create an innovative business model enabled by digital technologies, enhance customer experience and pave the path to future growth.
