ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps, Continuous Delivery - strangers, cousins, twins from different mothers? (Presented by IBM)

Session Type: 
Sponsored Session
Speakers

It seems that the faster our markets move, the faster we invent buzz words. The more complex the market becomes, the more complex our buzzwords. Let's play buzzword bingo while discussing ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Are they practices? Attempts at defining the software lifecycle? Market categories? Tools? Or all of the above? We'll have something to give to the first person who fills out their buzzword bingo card.

Making Agile ALM Work in Regulated Industries

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile practices may seem at odds with GRC (governance, risk and compliance). Skeptics understandably are worried about the prospect of multiple small teams working autonomously, and a resulting lack of accountability and control.
By following the right concepts, you can make Agile work effectively also in highly regulated industries such as Finance, Telecommunications, Pharmaceuticals and Government.

Panel: Agile and ALM – What does Agile mean to ALM ?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

For many in the Agile community software delivery tools are considered to be anti-Agile. Tools are thought of as getting in the way of successful software projects and reduce Agility. But tools are increasingly important for Agile success. ALM, the application of business management to the practice of software delivery is considered by many as a tools oriented approach to software delivery. So, how can you manage these two very different ideas – Agility and ALM.

Looking in from the outside - Scenario-guided design, ALM and OSLC

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

In 2008, the Jazz team set out on a journey to provide a world class ALM solution that allowed for loosely coupled integrations and an experience of 'surfing the ALM web of related artifacts.' In 2012, the solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management received the highest marks in the Forester ALM wave. The team achieved this transformation by having an open architecture based on web standards, building a community for open integrations, and using a user-centric, lifecycle scenario to guide our choices about the experience.

Visual Requirements Management and Decomposition with Kanban

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile teams do a great job working on User Stories in each Iteration or Release and delivering them all - well mostly! - using the typical Scrum Story Board or even a Kanban Board. However, there is a lot of upstream effort that goes in, typically at higher levels of abstraction, with longer cadences and involving multiple stake-holders. Most organizations and teams have not yet understood the criticality of managing this upstream work well, nor the effort that needs to be put in so that the Dev board is continually supplied with User Stories at the right time.

Requirements On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile puts enormous strains on the people responsible for software requirements:

  • How do they get just enough requirements in time for the next sprint?
  • How do you pack enough information into the requirements to provide meaningful guidance?
  • Will you ever provide meaningful guidance for outsourcing partners?
  • How do you spin off additional artifacts for governance and compliance?
  • How do you re-purpose the information in the requirements for other audiences?
  • Do you ever get a chance to do retrospectives on requirements?
