Bringing Agile technology to business transformation: launching swarmOS(c)
A new company, swarmOS©, is developing software to support business executives as they transform their organizations.
Traditional business organizational models are falling by the wayside as organizations seek to transform themselves to become more efficient, effective and responsive. Modern, so-called "Agile" techniques actually form an ideal approach to this transformation, but thus far use of the technology has been largely limited to software development projects, as current Agile software tools can be unnecessarily detailed and technically complex to allow business executives to gain significant benefit.
Mülheim a.d.R., June 28th 2017 - Traditional business organizational models are falling by the wayside as organizations seek to transform themselves to become more efficient, effective and responsive. Modern, so-called "Agile" techniques actually form an ideal approach to this transformation, but thus far use of the technology has been largely limited to software development projects, as current Agile software tools can be unnecessarily detailed and technically complex to allow business executives to gain significant benefit.
What is needed is a way to bring these Agile technologies to the business. Spotting this gap in the market, a team of experienced software executives and organizational developers, led by Dieter Weisshaar, has joined forces to develop swarmOS(c) - a package of solutions to support agile transformation projects that address the needs of business users. The software solutions support companies as they implement their business strategies using the Agile approach, such that everyone in the organization can see objectives, understand progress and contribute positively to execution.
"With the products we will launch from swarmOS, business decision-makers will soon have help to manage agile transformation, " said Dieter Weisshaar, CEO of swarmOS. "Extensive analytics and adaptable dashboards provide complete visibility over all projects at a glance. This enables the people who have to make decisions - from the shop floor to the board - to do so promptly and on the basis of comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date information. "
The swarmOS products are built on the proven strength of the Atlassian platform, ranked by Gartner as the leading provider of Agile software capabilities, and provided as a cloud service. swarmOS extends Atlassian's considerable capabilities, already used by thousands of people to manage software development projects, to address the needs of business executives undertaking transformation projects.

 Gartner: "The "big bang with predetermined phases over three years" methodology isn't working anymore. Business transformation leaders and other change agents need more agile business transformation approaches to respond to big change situations."
 swarmOS seamlessly integrates with the Jira, Confluence and HipChat software solutions from Atlassian, already used by many thousands of users to manage Agile software development; the principle of Agile work (SCRUM or Kanban) can also be transferred to other project types, including business transformation.
