30.06.2016 - With the release of the first server hosted in the DBM IaaS facility, today LABITEM officially adopts the open source project management platform Taiga as an internal resource.

"Taiga is an open source project management platform for startups, agile developers, and designers. It focuses on agile development methods, and has all of the required features such as a backlog, Kanban board, tasks, sprints, and issues. Notable pros are the integration with GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket, making it an interesting project management tool for developers. Taiga can also be extended through plugins, and has a REST API. Taiga is licensed under GNU Affero GPLv3, and requires a stack which includes Nginx, Python and PostgreSQL." (source: Opensource.com)

Taiga is a Kaleidos spin-off. Kaleidos is a Madrid/London based venture delivering free software for innovative projects that co-creates and develops IT-heavy technological platforms for new Internet-oriented startups. Taiga consistently ranks high in the comparison charts. Taiga recently won the "Best Agile Tool 2015" award.

Part of the LABITEM's Project Management Facility initiative, Taiga will complement OpenProject as a project management platform specifically suited for agile methods (Scrum & Kanban). The Taiga platform will be also released as a service to the research community at DBM, available through the Project Management Services initiative, by the end of this year.
