of an agile project (what some processes might call the Warm-UP, Inception phase, or Initiation phase).  Initial requirements envisioning is particularly important for scaling agile software development techniques to larger, more complex, or globally distributed development (GDD) efforts.  The goal is to understand the requirements at a high-level, it isn't to create a detailed requirements specification early in the lifecycle, a traditional practice referred to as "Big Requirements Up Front" (BRUF) which ...

agile requirements modeling
Many traditional project teams run into trouble when they try to define all of the requirements up front, often the result of a misguided idea that developers will actually read and follow what the requirements document contains.  The reality is that the requirements document is usually insufficient, regardless of how much effort goes into it, the requirements change anyway, and the developers eventually end up going directly to their stakeholders for information anyway (or they simply guess what their stakeholders meant).  Agilists know that if they have the ability to elicit detailed requirements up front then they ... market research, surveys and trends


Agile Master Data Management (MDM)
The primary goals of Master Data Management (MDM) are to promote a shared foundation of common data definitions within your organization, to reduce data inconsistency within your organization, and to improve overall return on your IT investment.  MDM, when it is done effectively, is an important supporting activity for service oriented architecture (SOA) at the enterprise level, for enterprise architecture in general, for data warehouse(DW)/business intelligence (BI) efforts, and for software development projects in general.   Traditional approaches to data management (DM), ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Overcoming Requirements Modeling Challenges
To be agile at requirements modeling you need to be in a situation where it is possible to succeed, and for many project teams this unfortunately is not the case.   Very often requirements modeling efforts are undermined by your environment � it is common to discover that an organization�s culture isn�t conducive to effective software development efforts or project stakeholders do not understand the implications of their decisions. industry trends, business articles and survey research
Building a Private Cloud: Get Ready for a Bumpy Ride
became a topic of discussion a few years ago, public clouds received the bulk of the attention, mostly due to the high-profile nature of public-cloud announcements from some of the industry's biggest names, including Google and Amazon. But now that the talk has turned into implementation, some IT shops have begun steering away from public clouds because of the security risks ; data is outside the corporate firewall and is basically out of their control. Tom Bittman, vice president at Gartner, said in a blog post that based on his poll of IT managers, security and privacy are of more concern than the next three public cloud ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I need a cool software requirements specification template. There ...
You need rather a "requirements management" sub-process framework adapted to your general development process. Depending on your particular development process you shall adapt also the requirements specification template to your context. Because an effective template is strictly related to the context (current project), more important is which elements you need to put in the requirements. You shall document all types of requirements: FURPS+ (search for details), where “F” is “functional”, “URPS” are non-functional and “+” are constrains (design, architecture, etc.). These ...
Agile software development at AllExperts
called iterations, which typically last one to four weeks. Each iteration is like a miniature software project of its own, and includes all of the tasks necessary to release the mini-increment of new functionality: planning, requirements analysis , design, coding, testing, and documentation. While an iteration may not add enough functionality to warrant releasing the product, an agile software project intends to be capable of releasing new software at the end of every iteration. At the end of each iteration, the team reevaluates project priorities. Agile methods emphasize realtime communication, preferably face-to-face, over ...
