Microsoft announces eScrum Tool
June 22, 2007
Microsoft is finally into the agile bandwagon. They recently announced the eScrum tool.
eScrum is a Web-based, end-to-end project management tool for Scrum built on the Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server platform. It provides multiple ways to interact with your Scrum project: eScrum Web-based UI, Team Explorer, and Excel or Project, via Team Foundation Office Integration. In addition, it provides a single place for all Scrum artifacts such as product backlog, sprint backlog, task management, retrospective, and reports with built-in context sensitive help.
This was a tool which Microsoft has apparently been using internally, they put it up on the web on June 12, so looks like they want to get feedback from users and then commercialize it.
Here are some screenshots.
