Scaled Agile Unveils Enterprise SAFe™, a Hosted, Customizable Version of the Scaled Agile Framework®

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) July 29, 2014 Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of SAFe, the world's most comprehensive framework for adopting Lean-Agile best practices across an enterprise, today unveiled Enterprise SAFe, a new software product that allows organizations to create a custom version of the Scaled Agile Framework website while maintaining automated updates as the methodology advances.

When an organization applies Lean-Agile practices without adapting them to their actual context, they often find that over time, their processes start diverging across the enterprise, causing teams to move away from common process goals. Enterprise SAFe allows organizations to align around common process objectives while providing the capability to adapt the process to their unique needs and culture.

"SAFe provides a robust framework for implementing Agile practices at scale and now, Enterprise SAFe takes it to the next level by filling the context gap with features that provide greater extensibility and object-level customization," said Dean Leffingwell, Chief Methodologist and creator of the Framework. "We believe Enterprise SAFe will revolutionize how the software development industry interacts with the Scaled Agile Framework, especially for highly complex organizations who are looking for a scalable and sustainable solution to long-term adoption of SAFe." Provisioned by Scaled Agile and built on WordPress in a private, secure, cloud-based website, Enterprise SAFe provides an ecosystem of customization that enables organizations to revise the graphical representation of the SAFe Big Picture, as well as the entire SAFe content offering. Content is controlled locally by the enterprise via a set of tools that allow for reviewing differences between local pages and content updates, accepting or rejecting framework updates from Scaled Agile, adding custom content such as icons, labels, articles, and graphics, and managing large numbers of users.

"This is our response to feedback from the SAFe community and its rapidly growing demand for custom instances of SAFe," said Drew Jemilo, SAI's President and Chief Technology Officer. "For organizations new to scaling Agile, Enterprise SAFe can help them envision making the transition to Lean-Agile best practices because it can so easily adapt itself to their context. Based on what we are hearing from our early adopters, we are enthusiastically looking forward to sharing the first wave of case studies." Through the Enterprise SAFe license, organizations have the option to include advanced content, including the Implementation Playbook, a premium add-on that provides detailed processes, role descriptions, and guidance to support rapid implementation in highly structured organizations.

The newly launched Enterprise SAFe product is now available for licensing. Learn more at: About Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI): Based in Boulder, Colorado, USA, privately-held SAI's mission is to help software-dependent companies achieve better outcomes, increase employee engagement, and improve business economics through adoption of Lean-Agile principles and practices based on the Scaled Agile Framework. A 2014 winner of the Red Herring North America Top 100 Award, SAI supports tens of thousands of practitioners of the Framework through training, certification, consulting services, and a global partner network that reaches over 35 countries and 350 cities.
