Bill Yetman and Jeremy Pollack discuss using several Agile techniques -start simple, get going, iterate- and the “measure everything” principle to create the architecture behind the Family History website.
Steve Lawrence showcases several agile metrics supporting an organization’s objectives, but also addresses some of the bad metrics and the 7 sins of Agile measurements.
Graham Brooks explores internal measurements used in a continuous delivery feedback mechanism in order to improve a system's design.
David J. Anderson explains how to use predictability, measurement and change management to balance the factors of observed capability, staffing, and delivery targets to achieve predictable outcomes.
Justin Sheehy explains why a paradigm shift is necessary when dealing with large concurrent distributed systems and what are some of their requirements: no global state is shared, ACID no longer works but rather BASE and CAP, getting rid of RPC and using protocols over APIs instead, prepare for failure, degradation, understanding the harvest-yield balance, and using measurement.
Next Generation of Business-Driven SOA: The Convergence of Performance-Driven Business and Service-Orientation
John DesJardins believes that a new generation of SOA is about to emerge, one based on business performance achieved through continuous process improvements driven by business metrics and IT collaboration. Organizations will measure their businesses alignment with IT in order to asses the impact of services, the impact of changes or new initiatives, up-time, response time, etc.
Project managers new to agile methods often have questions about how to track progress on agile projects. Some of the traditional measures don’t line up very naturally with agile thinking and agile practices. The presentation shows how to project realistic completion dates based on empirical observations based on Velocity for iterative methods and on Cumulative Flow for non-iterative methods.
James Shore and Rob Myers help you examine the role of metrics on Agile teams. We take a broad survey of metrics being used on Agile projects, both traditional and innovative, and look at the value and dangers to the success of the team. We look at how the simple act of measuring, itself, can be harmful, and when it is well-justified.
