I would like to be able to show dependencies in the Roadmap Timeline and Pivot views

We have an internal technology group that releases core functionality that other products are dependent on. I need to be able to show that to the execs so they can visually understand one of the internal constraints of delivering the product.

This is a Release to Release dependency.

As an example, in the good ol' days BA (Before Aha!), we'd do something in powerpoint like the attached.

    I would also like to show the reverse.  If we plan to create an experience next year, but the technology group hasn't yet planned the technology that will be needed, we'd like to have some way to show that there is a gap or a need.

    Technology is one driver to Roadmaps but there are more. Generally, a good "technology roadmap" for a product portfolio shows Features, Technologies, Skills, Staff, Funding, Calendar Events, and Disrupting Threats. The two screenshots (from PersonalBrain) show a few of the kinds of roadmaps that are needed. This paper (one of several like it) http://www.vgu.edu.vn/fileadmin/pictures/studies/MBA/Handbook_Roadmapping.pdf illustrate a few of the common needed patterns.

    Generally, one must be able to show the evolution of multiple facets of a solution domain (capability, technology, economics, skills) over time on the same graphic AND show the dependencies between the facets.

    Only then can an Enterprise Architect, a Product Owner, a Project Manager, a Scrum Master, or a Buyer answer the crucial "What if?" questions.

    So +100 for the original poster's capability request. What's the ETA?

    From a PMO standpoint, we would like to use Aha! to show a Project Initiative based Roadmap showing a summary view of all Project Initiative Dependencies on the Roadmap View.  We want to build one Roadmap View showing all of our Product Initiative and Project Initiatives associated with our Organizational Goals on one Dependency Roadmap View.

    From this request I'd like to see the visualization of the relation of features, releases, master features, etc. in a larger canvas.  Something like what you can already see in the "visualize" area of each feature with respect to linked records, but say on a whole product line, or even better across all of Aha.  In my case, I am running a Platform network of websites, described here: 



    What would be ideal is to be able to see these dependencies across all the go-to-market products that interact with the individual features, and in particular master features, of the product that is the platform.

    Thanks guys!
