The webinar will introduce the unique demands that agile processes place on legacy SCM tools and ways to build and automate an efficient Agile development process. Damon Poole, AccuRev CTO, and Uttam Narsu will be presenting.
Mr. Narsu, an industry expert on software configuration management (SCM) best practices and former Forrester/Giga analyst, will discuss the most important aspects to consider when applying SCM best practices to an agile world. Mr. Poole will discuss how Multi-stage Continuous Integration can solve some of the underlying impediments to a successful Agile development environment.
"SCM is critical to Agile success. If your SCM tools don’t provide integrated and seamless support for Agile, you won’t get widespread adoption of Agile development," said Narsu. "Development teams require brutally efficient SCM tools, but the tools must still be issue-based, must have support for flexible process models, and enable efficient branching, merging, and refactoring. The SCM tool should also provide private workspaces and assist continuous integration."
Mr. Narsu has worked with hundreds of clients using wildly differing software development environments. While clients who succeed with agile development have strong SCM practices, the best practiced agile SCM: transparently integrated, flexible, and collaborative.
Specific topics discussed will include:
• Typical SCM obstacles to Agile success and how to avoid them;
• Key Agile Process requirements for SCM products and specific use case scenarios;
• Challenges with continuous integration, and how Multi-stage Continuous Integration delivers value and how to adopt it today; and
• Key SCM metrics for delivering on Agile development goals.
