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.
Agile Project Selection from a Portfolio of Projects

Meeting the Challenge of Enterprise Cloud Development: 7 Best Practices for Hybrid Cloud
A major transformation is underway. What historically operated behind firewalls is migrating to public and private Clouds. Across these interwoven Clouds, business solutions must interoperate, share data and deliver value to customers, suppliers and other business partners as the developing Boundary-free Enterprise™ emerges and evolves. Read this whitepaper to learn how to manage these multiple hybrid Clouds through ongoing, continuous delivery of new functionality and the integration of other Cloud solutions.
From Revolution to Evolution: The Case for Agile ALM
The wait is over for the next generation of ALM, as new Agile ALM tools and techniques provide a path to greater productivity. To many in the IT industry, the introduction of application lifecycle management (ALM) as a central discipline in software development ten years ago was seen as nothing short of revolutionary. But every revolution must itself confront change, in this case overcoming challenges with legacy ALM products that proved to be too monolithic, inflexible or costly to manage. Called Agile ALM, the next generation of ALM delivers an evolution towards embracing change, and focusing on what matters most: productivity and value. Read this paper to find out what is happening in the industry in regards to ALM and what you can do to take your dev teams to the next level.
Building a Stronger Agile Enterprise with Subversion
How a State-of-the-Art Version Control System Supports Agile Principles. Any software development methodology depends heavily on version control, but none more than Agile. With its emphasis on faster production, flexibility, and continuous integration to drive ongoing software improvements, Agile places a premium on the quality and efficiency of version control. This paper also describes how Subversion’s features and functionality lend themselves to Agile’s values of Ease, Speed, Facilitation and Flexibility, and explains how Subversion reinforces the guiding principles of Agile that are outlined in the Agile Manifesto. Six of the 12 Agile Principles will be examined in detail.
An Introduction to Agile Software Development
What is Agile? How can Agile help improve my organization? This paper discusses answers to these questions.
This paper is written for IT managers and CXOs with an interest in improving development productivity. First comes an introduction to the two broad schools of thought common to software development: traditional sequential, a.k.a. "the waterfall method," and iterative methods, of which Agile is one subset. The objective is to demonstrate the shortcomings of the waterfall approach, while providing a solution in iterative and, more specifically, Agile methods.

Strategic Vision & Scrum: Looking Beyond The Next Sprint
When organizations adopt an agile approach like Scrum to product development oftentimes there is so much focus on the iterative nature of agile development that long range vision and strategic product design can get lost. In fact, it is critical that projects include long term product vision from the start, and that the iterations are designed to specifically support that vision. This long range planning should include elements such as user experience and user centered design and to ensure that the result is one that delights the users and at the same time, maximizes an organization’s return on investment.
