What Is NowPoker
NowPoker is a ServiceNow Application that is fully integrated with ServiceNow Agile Module. It is a gamified technique for estimating points for Agile Stories.
ServiceNow provides comprehensive DevOps and Agile functionality within the IT Business Management(ITBM) application family. The agile module, together with Portfolio and Project Management module, provides your organization to manage agile or hybrid projects by integrating scrum functionality (stories, epics, themes, scrum teams) with product releases and projects.
Our company and customers, as well as many other ServiceNow customers, use the agile module in ServiceNow for their development teams. However, ServiceNow does not provide a Planning (scrum) Poker functionality. NowPoker is a ServiceNow application that is available for free in the store to fill that gap. NowPoker is Now Certified and is fully integrated with the ServiceNow Agile and ITBM modules.
NowPoker allows Scrum teams to virtually bring together the project team around the Scrum Master, who facilitates the discussion taking place between the participants, in order to estimate the workload for the User Stories presented.
The main advantage of the NowPoker is to allow all participants to share knowledge and to enable the accurate estimation of user stories directly in ServiceNow without leaving the platform. The story points agreed upon by the team from NowPoker will automatically be allocated to the corresponding story.
