Mountain View, CA, United States, 2010/03/08 - Mistral Software has chosen Digité Enterprise to monitor their IT investments, and at the same time track project progress and manage resources using Digité's flexible Timesheet Management module.
Mistral Solutions Pvt Ltd, a leading provider of complete technology solutions and professional services in the embedded space, announced the successful implementation of Digité Enterprise, leading Application Lifecycle Management application, streamlining their project execution processes and delivery capabilities further.
Making the announcement, Mistral’s VP, (Quality Assurance and IV&V), Cdr V K Santhanam said, "Given that we are in the embedded space and serve several verticals, we execute various types of mission critical, complex projects with different lifecycles. Digité has enabled us to standardize the lifecycle/execution processes of these projects by configuring the required process templates as per our Quality Process requirements. Digité’s Application Lifecycle Management framework made it possible to track all the relevant project artifacts in a single place. This has significantly helped our project managers to have a better control on their projects. Our Management today is able to easily review the progress/performance of all projects using Digité’s customizable dashboards and reports providing real-time metrics because of which our vision of being a metric-driven organization is soon becoming a reality."
Mistral Solutions had selected Digité as the Application Lifecycle Management solution of choice after an extensive product evaluation once they decided to automate their project execution & delivery. Digité’s Process Governance module helped in automating the lifecycles for all types of projects as per Mistral’s QMS requirements. These Process Template definitions are inherited right at the time of the project creation. This has helped in standardizing and enforcing processes across all projects. Digité’s Integration with Subversion® & cross-project traceability features have helped project teams to easily establish traceability between engineering artifacts and all other Configuration Items.
Digité’s Application Lifecycle Management capability has enabled Mistral to plan and track all engineering activities within an integrated platform. Mistral has implemented a robust defect & change management process using the workflow capability. Since Mistral develops mission-critical hardware and applications, reviews on all project artifacts at the right time is a critical requirement. Mistral has been able to automate the review process customizing Digité’s Review Management module.
Cdr Santhanam continued, "All projects at Mistral are being executed on the Digité Enterprise platform that enforces all project status reporting through the application itself. We greatly appreciate Digité Enterprise as we could see a remarkable increase in the productivity of the Project Managers as they now spend less time to generate and validate reports."
Congratulating the entire implementation team from both Mistral & Digité, Sudipta Lahiri, Sr. Vice President – Engineering & Professional Services at Digité, said "We are very impressed with the commitment, attention to detail and the Implementation approach adopted by Mistral. Mistral opted for a phased implementation wherein the key modules were implemented in phases after ensuring adequate training and support to the project teams. Mistral's Top Management was actively involved and provided their valuable inputs during the implementation phase. To sum it up, it was a great committed effort on the part of both the Mistral and Digité teams that led to the successful implementation of Digite Enterprise at Mistral."
