Over the last decade, agile development has become one of the most talked about methods of software development. It encompasses many methodologies that are used globally, Scrum being one of the most popular. Danube released its ScrumWorks Pro version 3.1 program in July, 2008 to support Scrum methods. IT leaders practicing Scrum techniques should evaluate ScrumWorks Pro to determine if it is a fit for the organization.
