    Experience Report

    Abstract: Fannie Mae, a leading source of residential mortgage credit in the U.S. secondary market, provides reliable, large-­scale access to affordable mortgage credit across the country to help individuals buy, refinance, or rent homes.

    Coming out of the housing crisis in 2013, Fannie Mae recognized that the lending environment it was moving into required it to be even more responsive to meet rapidly changing customer needs.  Further, Fannie Mae recognized that agility was critical, not just in technology, but across the enterprise to achieving this objective.  

    Over the last 2 years, Fannie Mae has undergone a concerted effort to adopt the agile values and practices and has begun to recognize the benefits promised. Today, there are more than 170 agile teams across Enterprise IT, and both functional and business portfolio's are adopting lightweight agile values and practices as part of their day-to-day activities. 

    As a result of transforming from Waterfall to Agile, Fannie Mae experienced a significant boost in productivity as well as a reduction in delivery risks through the relentless focus on innovation and automation to ship "production ready" code with high and higher frequency. The transformation to Agile has revolutionized how the firm plans for the delivery of large scale ($100 million plus investment/year) programs, has significantly mitigated risk inherent in complex in integration between legacy and new architectures/applications, as well as between internal and external systems.

    Within the larger context of the transformation to Enterprise Agility, this Executive Panel Discussion will provide unique Executive insight with respect to the organization's journey to date and goals for the future.
