Using Disciplined Agile Delivery approaches for requirements discovery & management of green-field projects is fairly straight-forward. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life that most IT projects aren’t green-field. Most time and effort is spent maintaining existing systems that are operating in the context of an always-on enterprise. Such maintenance projects can be quite complex, due to the need to honor existing system interdependencies and to avoid system downtime. Moreover, IT shops are now frequently asked to substantially modify existing assets to deliver new capabilities that address an array of requirements, such as those driven by competition, government regulations, customer needs, or internal pressures. And "these requirements need to be addressed today!!
Success in this higher-pressure world requires, among other things, more seamless collaboration between IT Development and Operations departments. Here's where agile practices can help. My definition of "Operations" includes infrastructure, ongoing support, maintenance, and improvement of a product. The session will focus on Agile requirements practices and provide some insight on how they can be leveraged to help improve IT’s ability to excel in this current, more challenging and changing world and how can be scaled to cater for future maintenance, and operations on an existing products. I discuss agile requirements practices that can help improve IT's ability to excel in this current, more challenging and changing world. I also explain how to leverage the role of the business analyst (BA) so to bridge the gap between Dev and Ops.
