Designed for agile teams, version 11.2 of Visual Paradigm comes with a significant improvement in the support of requirements gathering by introducing features like user story, sprint management and use case statements.
"Visual Paradigm 11.2 is designed for software development team who has ever wanted to develop great software with effective requirements gathering and management support," said Mr. Angus Chan, product manager of Visual Paradigm. "We believe its capability to write and detail user story, categorize stories by use cases, document user story scenario and manage project sprints make it the most advanced agile software design tool in the marketplace."
Despite there are lots of discussions relate to use case and user story upon their similarities and differences, Visual Paradigm has integrated the use of UML use case and user story in their software design tool. According to Visual Paradigm, the distinction between use case and user story is clear with use case represents business goal while user story describes a specific functionality to be implemented. Visual Paradigm allows the grouping of user stories in use case basis. This enables project manager and development team to keep track of the progress of supporting use cases and to ensure the user stories written are all within the agreed system scope.
Besides user story, Visual Paradigm 11.2 has also revised UeXceler from 1.0 to 2.0. UeXceler 2.0 has incorporated the idea of use case statements, user story and the use of wireframe in detailing user story, making it a much more “agile-friendly”
