Logo for Agile Development: The Enterprise Challenge

Today's enterprises are increasingly interested in agile development for handling complex software engineering projects. Specifically, these enterprises are hoping to bring more efficiency to the development process by keeping costs and schedules under control, and at the same time deliver valuable content that meets their customers' needs. However, the challenge these companies face is how to apply this approach in an enterprise setting where the development teams involved might be scattered across multiple sites and time zones, use different languages, and are working on multiple parallel releases and variants. Adding to the complexity at the enterprise level is the fact that organizations adopting agile software development approaches still need to address issues of governance, compliance, and regulations, as well as meet diverse customer needs and business objectives. Traceability is further a fundamental part of any software development process but, most often, it is accomplished through a top-down approach, which often falls short. Roundtrip traceability is accomplished by taking both a top-down and bottom-up approach to verify and validate your delivery. This increases the predictability and quality of software development for both rigorous development processes that need total control over content and traceability, and for agile teams who must deliver stable, documented releases frequently and efficiently. This Podcast series will address agile development as a whole and cover more specific issues such as Roundtrip Traceability and allowing development teams to embrace change.
