Agile in the Cloud: A Case Study

Speaker(s): 

The Agile project methodology is one that relies heavily on collaboration between team members for success but how does it work when the team doesn't have the advantage of co-location? Join this session to learn about the fundamentals of Agile practices (via the Scrum flavor used by UCSF), a discussion of a real-world UCSF project using Agile, and the CA Agile Vision tool on the Salesforce cloud platform.Collaboration is at the heart of the Agile methodology, as reflected in the Agile Manifesto: individuals and interactions over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan. With a proven and greatly increasing track record of success for projects that have adopted Agile, there is no question that Agile is a worthy topic for discussion in any community of technologists.Though Agile relies on daily collaboration among the team, it can be done successfully with a remote team. A case study of the use of Agile in the ATHENA project will be presented, analyzing both the challenges and techniques to overcome challenges.
