Accelerating Process Improvement Using Agile Techniques

Accelerating method development utilizing Agile options explains how agile programming is utilized to plain technique development. by way of utilizing agile strategies, IT firms can accelerate method development tasks, reduce the assets those tasks require, and maximize the advantages of technique development.

What Computing Is All About

Keep track of the changes Easily revert to a prior version No loss of data Reliability Continuous integration process? Concentrate on developing software Early feedback Integrate with code from others Get high-quality production code Fewer errors Repeatable process Faster and shorter release cycle Early feedback Working software Automated build? No loss of valuable time Everything is coordinated by a script Prevents mistakes Fast feedback cycles * For example, deployment, delivery, maintenance 8 In The Art of Project Management (O’Reilly, 2005), Scott Berkun talks about three different perspectives: the business perspective, the technology perspective, and the customer perspective (chapter 3).

All of these points make it a lot harder to align tools and processes. Let’s summarize the key issues in how ALM was commonly organized before the next evolutionary step occurred: ■ ■ ■ Alignment of tools, roles, and organizational borders—The approach was mainly aligned at organizational borders and roles. As a result, there often was a single tool for each role or business unit. For example, let’s consider a big integration project that has a central build/config/release business unit. In another business unit, the test management runs in isolation, starting its main activities only after the software is released.

That leads to concrete, positive business outcomes. Agile ALM’s integrated approach leads to the protection of software assets, improved reuse, better requirements traceability, cleaner code, and improved test results. A high level of automation, seamless integration, and service orientation leads to a successful project and better team awareness. An Agile ALM enriches a traditional ALM with Agile values and strategies. With a focus on communication and collaboration, ALM processes already have the prerequisites to support Agile software development.
