Good software requirements are critical for delivering high quality software. Managing the changing requirements of a new system through the application lifecycle is one of the most critical aspects of software development today. Developing a system that is guaranteed to meet the needs of the customer when it’s time to release requires using the right tools and processes. In this paper we discuss some of the key challenges of requirements management and how organizations are addressing these challenges to increase their likelihood of success.
This article describes an "Agile Scorecard" that can be used as a first pass filter for selecting Agile projects. The intention of the Agile Scorecard is to provide a simple manner in which projects can be reasonably selected by a project team that is unfamiliar with Agile methods.
A continuation of the ideas introduced in “Enterprise Strategy for Introducing Agile,” Mar turns to the challenges organizations most commonly face when introducing agile or Scrum at the enterprise.

Implementing continuous integration involves choosing the right tools and technology. It also involves examining the software delivery pipeline for waste, introducing automation, building feedback mechanisms into processes, and fostering cohesive teams that collaborate across functions. This paper is written to provide guidance for teams new to continuous integration or wanting to explore ways to improve their implementations. The topics explored in this paper include Value Stream Maps, Antipatterns, and Tools and Technology for Continuous Integration.
A major transformation is underway. What historically operated behind firewalls is migrating to public and private Clouds.
