    The key objectives of any organization is to provide / derive value from the products / services they offer. To achieve this, they need to be able to deliver their offerings in the quickest time possible, and of good quality!

    In such a fast moving environment, CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery) are now a necessity and not a luxury!

    There are various practices that organizations need to implement to enable CD. Changes in requirements (a reality in all projects) needs to be managed better. Along with this, processes and practices need to be tuned based on the team capability, skills and distribution.

    Testing (automation) is one of the important practices that needs to be setup correctly for CD to be successful. But, this is tricky and requires a lot of discipline, rigor and hard work by all the team members involved the product delivery.

    All the challenges faced in smaller organizations get amplified when it comes to Enterprises. There are various reasons to this - but most common reasons are - scale, complexity of the domain, complexity of the integrations (to internal / external system), involvement of various partners / vendors, long product life-cycles, etc.

    In such situations, the Testing complexity and challenges also increase exponentially!

    Learn, via a case study of an Enterprise, a large Bank, the Testing approach required to take them on the journey to achieving CD.

    In my experience, Agile adoption started in some of the organizations with lot of hype and inflated expectations. And in such cases, if Agile transformation is not handled properly, it can result in multiple challenges rather than providing the expected benefits.

    This practical experience sharing session would cover some such problems I faced while applying Agile in different environments. The audience practicing Agile can relate some of these challenges with their own environment as well. The attendees who are on their path to Agile transformation can learn from the lessons and mistakes shared by the speaker.

    The session would cover challenges observed due to nature of the project, customer-vendor engagement model, application of processes, attitude of people rolling out agile, unrealistic expectations, conflict in roles and responsibilities. It would also highlight challenges introduced to some of the roles (like Project/QA Manager/Manual Tester etc.) in Agile environment and impact on billing / project contracts / SOW etc.

    With business agility the new watchword in senior management circles, more and more enterprises are looking for ways to adopt ‘agile’ into their technology practices. However, such an initiative needs to go beyond the mere adoption of agile in a few projects. To successfully implement enterprise IT agility, organizations need to understand the impact of agile across functions and groups, develop frameworks to sustain agile, empower teams across the board to work in an agile fashion, and invest in the right infrastructure. A strategic roadmap based on these considerations can help organizations infuse agile into their practices, processes and systems, thereby achieving true benefits of agile – faster returns, better quality and quicker time-to-market.

    This session  discusses the critical factors for an effective roadmap to implementing enterprise IT agility. It also outlines how these factors contribute to a successful enterprise IT agility strategy.

    The objective of sharing this experience report is to showcase how disruptive changes in the market place have driven the execution strategy for transforming a traditional waterfall organization to Agile. 

    It also contains a narration of our transformation journey so far and challenges we faced to understand the Key word "Value" across the business value chain.

    However for embedded systems & solutions many believe that Agile is not going to work, "our product is so complicated and distributed" (Is this supposed to be a quote?), their nature of business is so unique etc.. and if you ask about scaling then "Forget it".

    Hence my session is going to share the practical challenges we encounter and interesting stories of the transformation journey.

    Agile for embedded and firmware product development can be very complex and challenging than traditional software development. For example, how do we coordinate hardware design and development with embedded and firmware work, how do we map extensive verification and validation like lab testing to the Agile framework, or how do we even ensure we have enough time in the Agile process to design out the features for implementation before a Sprint. These are just a few examples of difficult challenges we have. This presentation will discuss agile approaches based on the Scaled Agile Framework to address these challenges for embedded and firmware development.

    How you think defines how you act.  Agile is more of a people practice than huge technical methodology. 

    In traditional setup with waterfall methodology where each phase of the projects are serially aligned and more often than not take longer, testing is slow paced and quite reactionary. When moving to an agile setup, it requires a paradigm shift in the mindset. 

    Its important to open our minds towards not only learning more technical but also soft skills and inspire our teams to do so too. Moving from competition to collaboration (with developers), moving from mere bug finding to bug investigation, moving to exploratory testing.

    Emphasis is laid on team members and interactions instead of processes and tools. The idea is to encourage testers to think more about Agile as mentioned in Agile Manifesto than getting blindly into agile projects.

    The majority of organizations have adopted, or are in the process of adopting, agile software development techniques. For the most part this is working out well for them, with organizations reporting that on average agile teams are producing better quality, achieving higher levels of stakeholder satisfaction, quicker time to delivery, and better return on investment (ROI) compared with traditional strategies . However, organizations are also experiencing challenges with applying agile strategies at scale.

    In my current organization we started the journey two years back to Scale agile for a mid sized ECommerce Program implementing Scrum and Scrum. My attempt will be to share some of the fundamental principles, Best parctices and Learning of Scaling Agile while going through my personal experiences.

    The first read through Agile Principles and practices gives an impression that Agile is suited for smaller, co-located projects. A deeper thought around the agile principles, imbibing the principles and then trying to push the boundaries by trying to use agile principles and practices on larger distributed projects can eventually lead to amazing results, but the path is not well paved and has a number of pit falls.
     
    For anyone trying to use Agile on a large distributed project, it is important to understand the pit falls and what might succeed. In this talk, Nitin will be sharing his experience and learnings of leading multiple distributed agile projects with team sizes ranging from 30 to 220 members, over the last 5 years. This is must attend talk for anyone trying to use agile on large distributed projects.

    Agile development methods have been easily applicable for software where a worabkle product can be demonstrated in short span of time. However  with the benefits that Agile philosophy brings in i.e.  Visibility of progress, transparency, quick demo and feedback cycle, these seems to be applicable to all scenarios including enterprise software implemantation like Peoplesoft , SAP or Oracle apps.  The talk will be on highlighting the challenges which are faced in such scenarios and approach to mitigate those
