ScrumTable

Go digital - even for your Scrum meetings

Scrum and electronic project management tools don’t mix well. It’s a tedious task to manually synchronize Scrum boards and project management tools. ScrumTable takes the effort out of Scrum meetings for teams using ALM tools. ScrumTable enables efficient Scrum meetings by letting users interact with optimized paper-like views with data stored on your ALM repository.

Take your Scrum meetings digital – with ScrumTable. It eliminates the need for typing out meeting notes.

ScrumTable enables teams to hold efficient digital Scrum Meetings with a paper-like, touch-enabled user experience. ScrumTable supports all major types of Scrum Meetings and selected Scrum boards, such as Task Boards, Story Boards, Burndown Charts, Scrum Poker, Iteration Planning, and many more. Views are optimized for team settings and allow fast user switching. All user actions are logged, synchronized and undoable using the repository in a backend system. This way users may work at their own pace, without having to wait for the background system to respond. Currently, ScrumTable synchronizes with the Microsoft Team Foundation Server or alternatively an XML repository. The latter can be generated from existing Excel data. Future versions will also support Jira, OpenXML Excel Files and offer more configuration settings.
