Metronome is 100% compatible with SAFe 4.5. More Importantly Metronome is designed to support the Scaled Agile Framework.
Essential SAFe and Configurability: Whether you are using essential SAFe for team level activity or full SAFe for the enterprise, Metronome can be easily configured to your specific requirements. As your needs Scale, and new SAFe features are added from the framework, our tool is just a simple configurable click away from adding these features to your agile teams.
Metronome fully supports the Lean Learning Life Cycle of Hypothesis, Build, Measure and Learn. Whether the epic comes from the Portfolio or from the Agile teams, they through the same exploration cycle in Metronome. The Product Managers will use Metronome for Epic research and synthesizing the research into a Vision and a Roadmap.
Metronome supports the Lean and Collaborative Design model by introducing the Benefit Hypotheses statement when Features are identified. Metronome leverages the Weighted Shortest Job First (WsJF) prioritization model for prioritizing Features to ensure Features are implemented till Minimum Marketable Features (MMF) are met.
Metronome allows Product Managers and other Business Owners to visualize and control the flow of Features through the Continuous Delivery pipeline. Metronome’s workflow can be configured to support all or parts of the four phases of Continuous Delivery, namely: Continuous Exploration, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Release on Demand.
PI Planning logistics seem overwhelming to experienced agile experts, let alone people just getting started on SAFe. Metronome includes features to ease the PI planning process, such as setting the Business and Actual Value for the PI Objectives, a Program Board which displays the story and feature dependencies, and a Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD) which streamlines your PI Planning effort.
During Daily Stand ups, the Metronome Storyboard can be used to manage the flow and Work in Progress (WIP) limits. You can capture the notes during Iteration demo and have a central location to look up all the information collected during the various ceremonies.
Metronome uses all the power of the AWS platform to provide you with the simplicity you need in your program management efforts. In addition to being in an ecosystem where you are able to connect to a host of applications through the AWS marketplace, Metronome is also

What if I am already using JIRA for team Scrums or Issue Tracking? Or Service Now for Help Desk?
If a program is in the AWS ecosystem and has a REST API, we can connect to it. Whether you are seeking to connect to other Agile tools, DevOps tools, or Reporting tools connecting them to Metronome is a breeze.
DevOps work is intense. DevOps teams require flexibility in their agile toolset to manage and track releases, deployments, environments and tasking. Metronome can connect with any tool that provides a Rest API. This integration enables Metronome to enhance your existing capabilities, to help improve efficiency and productivity.
Metronome has a Risk Management module that allows you to view risks at the program, feature, and story levels, including their impact on time and cost. Metronome also leverages the WsJF Prioritization model to sort the features in the backlog.
Metronome uses the powerful search capabilities of elasticsearch full text search, to provide search as you type capabilities across teams, trains, backlogs and Kanban using the Elastic Search engine. All search results are visually categorized for ease of use.
Do you have to write complex queries to the data exported from JIRA? Are you struggling to summarize the data collected from multiple teams on your train? Metronome provides out-of-the-box support for multi-level reporting using information captured during the agile ceremonies allowing for real time decision making across all levels of the enterprise. We will soon be coupling these measures with machine learning and our custom algorithms to provide predictive insights into risks and resources across programs.
