  5. Forces in Motion • Evolving business requirements • Agile programming • Web 2.0 and Social Networking • Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) • The Eclipse phenomenon and our experiences

  6. The Shift: Intense focus on business outcomes • Align technology and business goals to enable flexibility & innovation • Manage value and mitigate risks via improved project management • Increase customer intimacy & knowledge to grow relationships & markets • Control costs & gain operational efficiency while meeting compliance mandates Consume & integrate value in organizationally diverse environments

  7. What’s different today? • 2007 and beyond: Shifts in software delivery • What we’re seeing • Increasingly diverse and cross organizational global project teams • SOA, Web-centric & Web 2.0 enabling new business models • Popularity of Agile development and social networking models • Interest in replicating the proven models of open, community- governed software delivery models • What we’re hearing… “2/3 of our projects span multiple business units”“People knew it was a train wreck; no one could see what to do.” “We’ve done two acquisitions in six months and we can’t lose customers” “We run on the Web – and we run fast — new code makes us really nervous” “We have to go where the best talent is, but we have IP and compliance realities”

  8. Changing Business and IT Environment “Managing dependencies between high-priority change requests and ongoing application development efforts “sometimes seems like it isn’t humanly possible.” (US healthcare company) • Demand for visibility into IT • Mandate to drive down cost of ongoing operations • Changes in IT governance • Geographic and organizational distribution • More complicated architectures and processes “We do progress reporting the same way we've been doing it for 40 years. It's all manual: weekly status meetings, progress reports, demonstrations. We’d love to get test results from nightly builds posted somewhere instead of having to run people down to ask them whether things are working yet.” (Bank) “We had a consulting company define a methodology for us. We still have it on a shelf somewhere. A process needs to live in the tools we use if it's ever going to be followed.” (Transportation company) “Automating our build-deploy-test processes would probably save each of our developers about an hour a day.” (Financial services firm)

  9.

  11. You cannot be Agile if you are not in shape • Scrum is CMM Level 3 compliant • Implies that it builds on a Level 2 organization! • If you do not know what proble, you are solving, then any solution is as good as any other • If you do not have the preconditions for going Agile, you will fail • Half of all SCRUM projects fail • Preconditions to Agile: • Open communication • Basic competencies • Lean • Stakeholder Engagement • Freedom • Balanced Maturity Coplien – Bootstrapping Agile

  12. Social Networking – Power of communities • Wikipedia on Web 2.0: • a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services … that facilitate collaboration and sharing between users • Key principles of Web 2.0: • the web as a platform • data as the driving force • network effects created by an architecture of participation • innovation in assembly of systems and sites composed by pulling together features from distributed, independent developers (a kind of "open source" development) • lightweight business models enabled by content and service syndication • the end of the software adoption cycle ("the perpetual beta") • software above the level of a single device, leveraging the power of The Long Tail. • ease of picking-up by early adopters

  13. e-mail, phone etc. Social computing Social computing turns individual preferences into niche markets that can be identified and reached syndicate you tag blog review people you know rate society economy people you don’t buy sell comment the world

  14. Pillars of ALM* • Traceability of relationships between artifacts • Automation of high-level processes • Providing visibility into the progress of development efforts * Forrester Research report, “The Changing Face of Application Life-cycle Management”

  15. The make up of ALM support* • Greater insight for problem resolution and better control and management • Collaboration and communication across the board • Better quality control, risk management and impact analysis • Connected requirements lifecycle • Instrumentation and more relevant metrics • Support for geographically distributed IT teams (internal and external to the organization) • Democratization of roles and role support • Process and workflow • Change and agility-driven environment • Seamless integration between the different phases of the application lifecycle and interoperability with solutions from other providers. *Ovum report “Application Lifecycle Management Market Analysis”

  16. From Eclipse to Jazz • Pre-Eclipse Way • Culture: shipping matters, delivering quality on time • Eclipse • 6 years shipping on time • Reflecting on process • Describing the process  the Eclipse Way • Jazz • Tooling the process

  17. fitness The Eclipse Way --- Iterative/incremental sign-off sign-off sign-off release 3.2 3.1 warm-up M1 M2 … endgame retrospective decompression initial release plan plan stabilize plan stabilize plan stabilize test fix test develop develop develop fix - spit & polish 6 weeks 6 weeks 6 weeks

  18. What is behind the Eclipse Way • Practices underpinned with values • ship quality on time • Used, developed and improved over time • Worked for us (and others) • Practices are from all kinds of sources • XP, Scrum, Crystal Clear, RUP, … • Patterns - Organizational Patterns of Agile Software Development – Coplien • It is not low ceremony • Approvals, verifications, reviews • It is agile: iterative, time-boxed, incremental, feature-based, collaborative, transparent, customizable

  19. What is behind the Eclipse Way

  20. 5 Years Shipment in Time !

  21. But… there are Pain Points… • Joining a team • Get my environment configured to be productive • What is happening in my team • Collecting progress status • Following the team’s process • Ad hoc collaboration/sharing of changes • Starting an ad hoc team • Is the fix in the build? • What will be in the next build? • Tracking a broken build • Avoid breaking a build/personal build • Why is this change in the build? • Reconstructing a context for a bug/build failure • Creating, tracking iteration plans • Interrupting development due to a high priority bug fix • Working on multiple releases concurrently • Tracking the code review of a fix • Referencing team artifacts in discussions • How healthy is a component? • Collecting project data/metrics? Teamawareness Buildawareness Boring and painful Projectawareness

  22. What if your tools know… • … about your teams • … about your artifacts • … who is responsible for what • … rules under which circumstances code can be delivered • Code quality, traceability, test runs, intellectual property • … how to bootstrap a project • … howto help new team members get started • … your favorite work item types and their state transitions • … when the build runs and what to do if it breaks

  25. What is Jazz? Rational Products Innovation A commercial project led by the IBM team that brought you the Eclipse Platform. Rational Team Concert will be the first product built on Jazz and feature tooling the agile practices. A major investment by IBM to create a scalable, extensible team collaboration platform for seamlessly integrating tasks across the software lifecycle Innovative Software Engineering Vision Community A vision for the value and experience that future Rational products can bring to software and systems delivery teams Jazz.net – Jazz project venue for open commercial development of Jazz platform and Jazz-based products and an extension of the world wide Eclipse ecosystem

  26. How is the Thinking Behind Jazz Different? DesktopIntegration Lifecycle Integration Eclipse established a desktop client integration model for individuals, Jazz will establish a similar integration model across the lifecycle of software projects Function First Team First Jazz will challenge us to think first about how people work together and then about the tool function needed by individual practitioners for specific roles Manual Process Aware & Transparent Focuses on automating the unique dynamic of a team enhancing productivity by enabling real-time collaboration, visibility and transparency across the team, and process enactment

  27. The value of the technology? Enables teams to collaborate in real time in the context of the work they are doing Provides visibility into accurate current project health information drawn directly from actual work across the team Automates traceability and auditability by managing artifactsand their inter-relationships across the lifecycle Enables custom process enactment via process automation & definable checkpoints Provides an extensible technology platform for building products & adapters ThePlatform An Open, Services Oriented Architecture Eclipse Client Jazz Client Extensions Eclipse Platform Web 2.0 or Web Services clients Lotus Sametime or open source Jabber Team Server Web UI Jazz Server Extensions Jazz Kernel DB2 or open source Derby Eclipse Equinox J2EE Web Services 27

  28. Jazz Customer Value • Accelerate time to value: Steer projects iteratively and integrate/test continuously to cut downstream scrap and rework • Improve project predictability: Real time instrumentation of changing work products for lifecycle assessment of progress and quality • Extract organization value and knowledge: Balance existing reusable assets with evolving user needs and employ know-how and skills from anywhere in a collaborative development environment. • Right-size development governance: Dynamically adapt process agility and level of process rigor to be commensurate with the uncertainty in the estimate to complete. • Focus value to the business: Link work and artifacts across the lifecycle to optimize economic outcomes • Improve effectiveness in a globally and organizationally distributed environment: through improved transparency, best practices capture and enactment, project dashboarding • Tap into community value: Extend Jazz-based offerings, e.g. Rational Team Concert, with broader value of the Eclipse community

Small teams in large enterprises who want an agile development process. Bringing the Jazz technology to the ClearCase and ClearQuest Customers Create innovation and thought leadership for Rational Customers ** In the first release 2008 39

  40. Rational Team Concert for Agile Teams • Agile teams need more than just an SCM system. They need tools to help them plan, organize, build, and ship their products. • Traditional SCM Agile best practices focused on the structure of the artifacts, Rational Team Concert adds the structure of the team and its process. • Helps structure and plan iterations with measurable executable output so that the teams know what is expected of them. • Rich integration allows team members to easily switch between different roles which is typical for agile teams (planning, development, testing). • Low total cost of ownership.

  42. The Roadmap to the Jazz Vision • If you are using or buying Rational’s existing products (e.g., ClearQuest, ClearCase, BuildForge, Reqpro) you are on the Strategy Roadmap for Jazz. That is, we’ll evolve you to the value over time with minimal disruption … • We will introduce a new middleware jazz-based server family to the Rational product portfolio enabling more flexible & dynamic lifecycle service integration & team collaboration brandedRational Team Concert … • As we introduce new offerings, they will increasingly be based on the Jazz technology (e.g., Lab manager, EQM , Reporting, etc) although they may not necessarily all be branded RTC • Jazz is an enabling technology designed and built in an open commercial community model at jazz.net. Jazz is not an IBM Rational product

  47. Open Commercial Development • IBM does two types of development - open source and commercial • Open source has traditionally implied two things • a license agreement that makes the result free • an open, transparent, release early and ofren development process • Commercial development has traditionally meant two things • a commercial license (inherent) • a closed development process (traditional practice, but not inherent) • IBM's innovation is to use an open, transparent, release early and often process for commercial development. • The license is still commercial • "Open" means that people are free to join the community doing development • "Transparent" means everyone can see what's going on. • “Release early and often” means more opportunity receive and incorporate feedback • Open transparent process is more than publishing the source code. In an open transparent process, from requirements and planning through delivery

  48. Open Commercial Development: What can you do? • Open Commercial Development: Participating with the Jazz and Rational Team Concert development teams in an open and transparent way that reduces friction • Download, try out, and (we hope) feedback on betas and incubators, including source code • Access, Create, and update work items • Access milestone and component iteration plans • Provide input on requirements • Access the development wiki • Participate in discussions on the development community newsgroups
