Agile Accelerator: Salesforce's Not-So-Secret (Anymore) Weapon!

The agile development model has quickly earned its place in the software world, rapidly moving into territory previously ruled by the waterfall development model. Salesforce adopted it years ago, after which the cloud-computing leader saw major bumps in productivity and a huge increase in the turnaround time for major releases. A major reason Salesforce's successful implementation of agile development was a tool called GUS or Grand Unified System). GUS was built on Force.com with the purpose of consolidating scrum, quality assurance and bug tracking into a simple-to-use interface.
 

And now Salesforce has made GUS available to Force.com customers with the tool now being branded as the Salesforce Agile Accelerator. The Agile Accelerator by Salesforce Labs allows development teams to: 
  • Control all aspects of a software release directly from Salesforce; everything from tracking business requirements to delivering the release. 
  • Manage key development tasks using a drag and drop interface. 
  • Use Chatter to collaborate with other cross-functional teams.
