We're moving to Agile/Scrum development.
Right now, we're using spreadsheets to track our backlog. It's working fine. But I've got a big project coming up, and the spreadsheets just aren't going to scale. I'm looking for something slightly more heavy weight than a spreadsheet, but still light, easy to use, doesn't get in the way.
It's got to be web-based since we have remote teams.
It has to support multiple teams on a single product with a single backlog.
It has to support a deep backlog with hundreds of items.
It must support the ?, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 13, 20, 40, 100, Infinity point scale
I need a reasonable assurance it'll be around for 3+ years.
It should generate burn up charts for each team and for the project as a whole.
We already have a defect tracking system. I don't need that in the system, and would prefer it to be absent.
Pivotal Tracker is the closest thing I've found so far. But it fails the point-scale and the longevity requirements.
Rally and Version One are close seconds, but they're way too "Enterprisey". I want something quick and light.
I'm tempted to tack something onto Todo-Board, but it's more than I want to bite off right now.
What do you look for in backlog management software?
