  • Is Pure Agile Always an Option?

    on Oct 4, 11 • by Todd Landry • with 2 Comments

    Even industries heavy on process (because of regulatory requirements) are taking the leap into agile. How agile are they?

    Over the past few years I’ve talked to a number of customers in the embedded software and medical devices industries, and I continue to see a significant number of these organizations either moving to, or planning on moving to agile development processes. With all of the inherent challenges for agile in these organizations such as standards/regulatory compliance, hardware changes and integration, security issues, etc. I must say that I’m a little shocked that customers are moving away from their current processes towards something like agile. Add to this the fact that the Agile Manifesto specifically

  • And the word of the day is… docragination

    on May 19, 11 • by Helen Abbott • with No Comments

    I came to the practice of procrastination late in life. I was always one of those annoying people who arrived for appointments early, handed in assignments early, went to bed early. Becoming a full-time working parent drove me to the dark side. Now I’m routinely late — late for exercise classes, late going to bed, late getting the kids to daycare. My forgetfulness factor has increased about 26-fold too. I’ve always been a list-maker, but now I have a few sayings that my husband is sick of: If it’s not in my calendar, it’s not

  • A Rockin’ Agile Roadshow

    Last week I toured the West coast with our friends from VersionOne, Perforce, and Electric Cloud on our Agile roadshow hitting the cities of Seattle, Santa Clara, and San Diego. In one of the after meeting discussions, one of the attendees asked me what the differences were between Agile and Lean. Having only been involved with Lean from an outside perspective, I didn’t really think there were huge differences and that they shared many of the same beliefs. Luckily, it looks like others believe this to be the case too. So rather than me trying

  • Medical Devices Roadshow – Minneapolis style

    on Jan 14, 11 • by Todd Landry • with 2 Comments


    Yesterday we did our second Medical Devices software seminar, this time in snowy and cold Minneapolis. Say what you will about the weather, but this city is built for winter…it has various overhead ‘tunnels’ called ‘skyways‘ connecting what seemed to be the entire downtown core, so you rarely ever need to go outside. Anyways, our seminar drew the interest of over 75% of registrants, mostly software engineers and QA, so really another great turnout. The format was the same as our Boston event, with the same players from SterlingTech, Klocwork (duh) and Vector Software. There

  • In standards we unite, in agile we diverge

    on Jan 11, 11 • by Patti Murphy • with 2 Comments


    What comes first—the process or the tool? Yes. Any tool worth its salt should integrate into existing processes and tools. What’s interesting and informative is seeing the similarities and differences in how the same tool is applied in different organizations, across continents and oceans. The emphasis on quality unites everyone, but the level to which agile is adopted is what makes static analysis markets different. No one knows this more than Mark Grice, Klocwork Director and Manager of the International Reseller/Partner Network, and Steve Howard, head of Partner Support in Europe. Trying to talk to
