What can I say? I’ve been busy, but I’ll try to do better in the future.
Since the previous entry two papers I have written for Unisys have been published. One on Agile Development with Agile Business Suite, and the other on AB Suite in the Application Lifecycle.
Both of these papers deal with application development, and ways to do it better. Even if you are not an AB Suite user you may find the paper on Agile development useful because it gives a summary of The Agile Manifesto, which is the core of all that is currently called “agile” development.
Even though the agile development methods have only been popular for a relatively short time, most of the concepts have been around for many years. People who have been following what we previously published as the “LINC Development Methodology” were practicing something very close to modern agile development processes. These include short iterations, frequent delivery, early and continuous involvement with the users, continuous testing, feedback, and ongoing improvement. In recent years development tools have evolved, or new tools developed to assist with agile development and release, and that is essentially what these two white papers address.
