Salient Commercial Solutions Strategically Partners with AgileCraft® to Drive Scaled Agile Transformations

Partnership Enables Enterprise-wide Agile Adoption by Providing Collaboration and Transparency for Active Agile Software Implementations

FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Commercial Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Salient Federal Solutions, Inc., is a leading information technology solutions provider delivering innovative scaled Agile approaches, today announced the inception of a key alliance with AgileCraft. This strategic partnership enables Salient to deliver significant benefits to customers seeking Agile process alignment across each enterprise and comprehensive program transparency throughout the full software development lifecycle.

"Partnering with Salient will help us address a specific market need: helping organizations that need to scale their Agile processes across the entire enterprise from top to bottom," says Steve Elliott the founder and CEO of AgileCraft. "Our commitment is to bring customers the tools and expertise they need to enable the rapid development and deployment of high quality, complex business solutions."

Salient's Agile teams deliver customer-focused expertise and consistently improve application development and integration by delivering working software incrementally. Communication, transparency, and innovation thrive because Salient capitalizes on lessons learned from daily stand-ups, sprint and release retrospectives, and collaborative analyses of knowledge management systems. As projects become larger than five teams, substantiating the investment of Agile implementations becomes a daunting task. Integrating the AgileCraft software product with Salient's proven processes enhances communications and aligns business investment needs with the best people and technology to efficiently deliver the right solutions. It also allows program leaders and customers to govern while ensuring Agile teams are consistently realigned with the corporate vision. Incremental deliveries empirically demonstrate that investments are realized well within the predicted schedule, by delivering functional software in short increments.

"Salient's partnership with AgileCraft will significantly improve service delivery for organizations by providing the visibility where executives can manage budgets, predict with confidence when projects will be complete, and ensure teams are delivering at a consistent velocity," says Brad Antle, CEO of Salient. "We are responsive to constantly changing customer needs and are continuously seeking innovative solutions to add value for our customers."
