Summary :1. What is ZenTao for? 2. Why is it called ZenTao? 3. Design philosophy of ZenTao PMS 4. Why choose ZenTao PMS 5. Features of ZenTao PMS

1. What is ZenTao for?

ZenTao is an open source project management software, developed by Qingdao Nature Easy Soft Network Technology Co. Ltd. Combining product management, project management, QA management, document management, bug management and todo management. It is a professional project management software, covering the core process of software development projects.

ZenTao is practical and pragmatic. It has full features and beautiful interfaces and is easy to use. ZenTao is well structured and can be flexibly extended. It also has powerful search features, various forms of statistical reports and complete API.

ZenTao focuses on development project management.


2. Why is it called ZenTao?

Zen(禅) and Tao(道) are the two Chinese characters that have rich meanings in both religion and culture. ZenTao Project Management Software takes the cultural meaning of Zen and Tao, and is expected to convey our understanding and thinking of management. Inspired by The Tao of Programming and The Zen of Programming, we named our software ZenTao.


3. The design philosophy of ZenTao PMS

The main design philosophy of ZenTao Project Management Software is based on Scrum, an internationally popular Agile methodology. Scrum is very pragmatic and easy to operate, so it fits in the fast iterative development of software projects. However, Scrum only defines the core management framework. There are still many details and processes that have to be extended and developed. Based on the philosophy of Scrum and with the observation of the current development situations in China, ZenTao integrates bug management, test case management, release management and document management, and it completely covers the entire lifecycle of software development. In ZenTao, the concepts of product, project, and test are clearly defined. Product team, development team and QA team coordinate and check with each other while they function differently. The three teams interact with each other through stories, tasks, and bugs, and eventually deliver the product with quality.


4. Why choose ZenTao PMS

  • ZenTao is a professional development project management software and cannot be replaced by any simple project management software.
  • ZenTao has precise and pragmatic management philosophy, which will accelerate agile development.
  • ZenTao has full features, so you don’t have to integrate several systems together, like mantisbt + trac + testlink.
  • Open source code and flexible extension mechanism, and is convenient to deploy and re-develope.
  • Underlying framework and frontend UI framework are developed independently; robust and stable with a beautiful interface and friendly interaction.
  • Perfect community mechanism; you can get technical support and help in time.
  • Zero input which means you have no risk for choosing ZenTao compared with other business software that could cost you ten thousands of dollars.
  • Support various deployments, either private deployment or cloud services.

  • Product management: including products, stories, plans, releases and roadmaps;
  • Project management: including projects, tasks, teams, builds and burndown charts;
