SDLC – Future Trends in Tools and Processes Balazs Fejes (FB2) Director, Product Management

Topics Interesting Trends • • • • Processes: Agility vs predictability: Enterprise Agile Portfolios Tools: VCSes going upstream vs Lifecycle tools going downstream Release Management: True continuous delivery If time permits: some other cool stuff What is doing about these areas?

Processes: Enterprise Agile Portfolio Agile is king!

Processes: Enterprise Agile Portfolio • 99% of our clients are sold on Agile • From small projects up to large 100+ developer programs • We at EPAM know how to scale and do distributed Agile • Organization structures, Scrum of Scrums • Coaching, tracking team work is solved • Problem: large Enterprises give up (the illusion of) predictable planning • Or even worse: maintain detailed MPP plans, the least agile thing • How to handle cross-team dependencies? • Marketing, business needs dependable release dates • Many client (example: banks) have regulatory constraints on level of auditing, quality control, documentation • Solution: Enable Project Portfolio level, cross-team planning, road mapping, monitoring

Processes: Enterprise Agile Portfolio Business Need Architectural Need Is implemented by Epic Epic Epic Epic PORTFOLIO PROGRAM Investment Theme Is implemented by Story Story Story Story Story Story TEAM Story SAFe Process Framework (Scaling Agile) • Program level governance • Top-down work package assignment • Roll-up progress tracking • Illusion of control is back  Program Portfolio Management Team • PMO • BA pool • Federal, cross-work stream architects • Release Management Is it still Agile? • Decentralized, Rolling Wave planning • Agile Estimation and Sprint Planning • Self-managing Agile teams • Objective, code and KPI based measures

Project Portfolio Management Tooling

Software Development Lifecycle Tooling • In the “old days”: SDLC: single-purpose tools, used by different project roles (BA, PM, testers, technical writers, developers) • Requirements management tool, Project Planning tool, documentation tool, testing tool, IDE, build management tool • Modern, Agile SDLC • minimize non-code artifacts • Roles not separated: developer can test, estimate, plan. Tester can document requirement, implement test code • Minimize duplication • Solution: Single, end-to-end platform for whole Agile SDLC

Software Development Lifecycle Tooling Every tool vendor: Let’s build everything in!

Software Development Lifecycle Tooling Not so great in Project Portfolio – no sub-projects

Software Development Lifecycle Tooling • EPAM’s strategic pick is Atlassian • Self-hosting • Extensibility • Configurability • Not cheap but affordable • We’ll fill in the missing, weak spots • Keep an eye on trends…

Continuous Delivery • How do you apply Agile to Release Management? • Traditionally the least agile aspect of development • Rigid quality gates • Multi-person approval cycles • Separate teams having access to Production environments • Problem: On big projects, actual (Agile) development time shrinks by 3-4 months just to get into Waterfall Release Management cycle • Solution: • Automation, automation, automation • Continuous integration, test automation, deployment automation, data/schema migration • Fantastic quality to gain stakeholder confidence • Or at least rapid problem resolution

Continuous Delivery Implications: • Preferably single system for all aspects (requirements, tasks, workflows, bug reports) • Smart branching strategies • Ability to release single features • Ability to roll back or switch to backup system • Eventually cut out the middle men!

Continuous Delivery - xPMC

Other cool stuff on the horizon PaaS – Web-based IDE - this is how we’ll work in a few years
