Agile has promised more reliability,
but has that happened for your projects?

  • How many times have you been surprised late in one of your projects?
  • Would you have benefited from objective data of telling you where you were really at?
  • Do you have the right tools to have the right conversations?
  • What objective data do you have that gives you confidence that you can deliver?
  • Are there any tools out there that use the data you already have?

How are your
projects running?

Aptage Risk Burndown (RBd) tools help you
increase project success by helping you:

  • Gain continuous objective and statistically valid measures of program risk
  • Promote a culture of shared understanding and open dialogue
  • Provide a platform for inspect and adapt
  • More quickly identify risks to enable early intervention before risks can compound and cascade into late-stage missed commitments, cost increases, and failures.

Aptage RBd has state-of-the art-math and learning algorithms, but is intuitive, easy to learn, and easy for you to use. Aptage’s objective analysis enables development organizations and leadership to better communicate and control the real risks and uncertainties inherent in software development and innovation.

Aptage doesn't look like math,
it looks like answers

  • Confidence in risk analysis provides you a better common understanding between your development organization and the business about acceptable levels of risk and the timing of deliverables.
  • Early identification of risks enables early intervention before program risks can compound and cascade into late-stage disasters and failure.
  • No barriers to adoption through leveraging the Agile fundamentals you already use.
  • Use the subjective and qualitative rough sizing data you already have to start out with, but as time goes on develop real models that decrease variability.
  • Provide Scrum Masters with real tools and suggestions for when problems arise.
