The Rally - Primavera Integration combines the best in proven enterprise PPM methods with the versatile capabilities of agile software development methods such as Scrum.
The business motivation for this bridge lies in the need to improve developer's productivity by allowing them to capture their time in the same tool (Rally) where they already capture their development status, while still capturing Actuals in the PPM tool (Primavera). When developer hours are captured as they update their agile tasks (very frequently) the accuracy of the time tracking data is much higher than when developers are asked to fill out timesheet weekly or every other week (in a separate tool).
Customers get to manage ALL of their project portfolio work as they gain access to their Agile projects and the relevant information from their actual work to make intelligent portfolio decisions about all their projects. Customers get the best of both worlds – the ability to manage their ENTIRE project portfolios and leverage the relevant data to make decisions without interrupting the project work software developers prefer to do in an Agile tool. This integration enables their teams to work in the solution that is best suited for their working style thereby increasing their productivity and morale while still gaining the information they need to effectively manage their projects. Developers focus on working in their agile development environments and avoid wasting time performing double data entry (in the agile and enterprise PPM environment.
