Today software is everywhere. It’s powerful, complex, and fundamental to business. There can be serious consequences to failure. Some failures can result in significant human harm, others, like security breaches, violations of regulations, or product recalls can have catastrophic business implications. We need strategies for delivering software that not only “do no harm” but add real value faster with less cost. IBM Rational “Five Imperatives for Application Lifecycle Management” provides framework to overcome the high cost of organizational silos. We will demonstrate how you can ride the waves of ever changing project demands using real-time planning that encompasses the entire team’s work, integrated with team execution.
