TechExcel, Inc., a developer of issue and process management solutions, announced the general availability of DevTrack 6.0. The latest version of DevTrack enhances the defect and project tracking tool's ability to manage and automate the application development lifecycle through extended workflow functionality, scalability, and integration with IT service and test management solutions.
DevTrack provides development teams with a management tool engineered to manage the workflow. The DevTrack 6.0 graphical workflow allows users to draw shapes and connectors that represent states and transitions respectively. Using the diagramming tools, users can define every aspect of a workflow rule including next actions for each status state, application owners for each status state, who can perform actions, invisible/read only/mandatory fields for each workflow actions and status states. Users can then publish the new workflow settings to a live system. DevTrack 6.0 also offers users the ability to create multiple workflows to cover the full spectrum of development work items, defects, and change requests.
In addition to new functionality, DevTrack 6.0 also introduces two performance enhancements designed for large development teams. DevTrack now supports web server load balancing and dedicated reporting servers. DevTrack customers can now dedicate a single web server or a group of servers for reporting purposes only, thus removing possible performance impact to the normal operations when users need to generate large reports. DevTrack 6.0 also introduces the DevTrack Search Engine to deliver instantaneous keyword search results even when DevTrack databases contain millions of issues.
Lastly, DevTrack 6.0 also continues to offer integration with IT service and test management solutions. TechExcel provides process solutions to manage the entire lifecycle of an issue – from the time issues are reported by customers to support teams to the moment corrections are released.
