BizDock R10.0 Release Note

Fusion Release and Initiative

From now on, a Release is managed as an Initiative. All features available with Initiatives are now also available with Releases! And to correctly separate them, Initiatives and Releases have their own types and life cycle processes.

More details

Deliverable management

A Deliverable represents a part of the scope of an Initiative or Release. It is a very flexible principle:

  • A Deliverable is owned by an Initiative or Release and could be “followed” by others: like this, BizDock solve the duality between Initiave vs Release delivery tracking.
  • A Deliverable can contain a set of Requirements so that its scope is clear.
  • A Deliverable could be related to a BizDock Package so that the 3 dimensions of the Project Management Iron Triangle (Cost, Schedule and Cost) can be totally managed via BizDock.

Import and export plugin configurations

The full configuration of a plugin (parameters, mapped objects…) could now be exported as an XML file, edited via a standard text editor and imported back.

New Notification Plugin

Notification… and much more! With this plugin, it's now possible to trigger notification, call to Web Service, logging… following a change on a BizDock data.
