Managing Software Releases with Agile Development: A Vendor’s Real Life Approach
sponsored by Oracle Corporation
The use of Agile Development to manage software releases is rapidly growing and there is no shortage in the ways that organizations go about combining development methods. For example, some organizations use Agile methods in a waterfall environment using a cafeteria approach to choosing the Agile capabilities that best fit their needs. This careful selection is likely a factor of incremental organizational adoption since moving from traditional development methods to an Agile development approach requires rethinking how work gets done and making this adjustment can be a major challenge to adopting Agile.
What’s the appeal of Agile then? Agile methodologies tend to help companies responsible for developing software avoid some of the pitfalls that tend to doom these efforts to failure. The emphasis on time to market, collaboration and customer evaluation of functionality enables teams to adjust efforts quickly to stay on track.
While tools abound for performing Agile development, organizations that have used traditional development methods using solutions to manage their project portfolios will learn in this webcast:
