BizDock R2.0 Release Note

KPI

KPIs are now much more powerful and configurable. You can now decide the colouring rules of your KPIs and see their evolution over time, all of this via the new KPI Manager administration menu. A new set of KPIs has also be added for Initiative and Portfolio

  • Org Unit allocations (with split confirmed / not confirmed)
  • Employee allocations (with split confirmed / not confirmed)
  • (With Redmine plugin): Requirement status (open / closed) and Story Points (open / closed)
  • (With Redmine plugin): Defect status (open / closed)

The Roadmap also includes the KPIs: it's now possible to select the ones which are displayed, and to filter on them.

Requirements

(Only via Redmine Plugin). See your Requirements / User Stories / Defects directly in BizDock and get a graphical overview of where do you stand. Categorise them in “Must” (Requirement) and “Blocker” (Defect) to directly see the Hot topics.

Initiative: Integration with external sources

Configure, for each Initiative, the Redmine repository you are using and which Master Data you want to synchronise. You can even have multiple repositories for one Initiative (for example in a multi-providers environment).

Cockpit: Allocated resources

As a Manager, see directly all the request for allocations (confirmed or not) of your subordinates. You can then easily planned and organised the capacity of your team.

Reporting: Data quality

The BizDock Report repository has been enriched by some new Standard reports and especially the BizDock Data Quality report. Its objective is to detect low data quality Initiatives (it will be enriched in the upcoming releases with more KPIs)

Package Groups

You can now add by group a set of pre-defined Planning Package. This is particularly useful to support Project Management methodologies like HERMES that recommend a set of standard project artifacts.

Reference data management

You can administrate yourself BizDock reference data like Employee or Stakeholder type.
