    1. 1. LUXproject Functionality Overview R12.1 Luxoft 19 October 2012
    2. 2. What exactly is LUXproject?  LUXproject is a distributed web-based project management system created on the basis of specific commercial and non-commercial modules developed by third-party vendors and open- source communities (Atlassian JIRA/GreenHopper, Atlassian Confluence, Atlassian FishEye, Subversion/Perforce, Cruise Control, WebDav etc.) as well as Luxoft modules.  The System provides users with a friendly, multi-purpose environment for implementing key project tasks and ensuring communications.  The main LUXproject users are project executors as well as the Customer. LUXproject supports role access, i.e. each project team member depending on his/her project role has certain access permissions to the System functional.  LUXproject management mechanisms as well as availability of project artifacts at any time and from any geographic location allow company management to arrange transparent project management and always have current and reliable information.  Currently, LUXproject allows to choose one of several methodologies for software development and maintenance projects, deploy Service Desk.October 26, 2012 2
