Project Management

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again. The management of these two systems is often very different and requires varying technical skills and philosophy, hence requiring the development of project management.

White Paper Published By: IAG Consulting     Published Date: Aug 24, 2010
Requirements excellence cannot be achieved without first understanding the critical capabilities of requirements maturity, and recognizing your organizations strengths and weaknesses. In order to develop a focused plan of attack, it is necessary to assess your requirements practice in each of six areas: process, technology, staff competency, organization, techniques, and deliverables. You will then be armed with the information you need to identify key improvement opportunities, recognize organizational strengths, and form concrete goals for action.

White Paper Published By: IAG Consulting     Published Date: Aug 24, 2010
Requirements quality is tangible. It is possible to look at the specific characteristics of requirements documentation and determine if it is sufficiently clear, accurate and complete to lead to a successful project. Since flawed requirements trigger about 70% of all project failures,1 this paper will present some hard and fast rules for looking at requirements documents, in any format, and being able to determine if they are reasonably well constructed. It will outline the key points to look for in a requirements document, and why this can save a company hundreds of thousands of dollars. Finally, it will offer five straightforward questions to address when evaluating requirements quality. The paper is not intended to be a full audit of requirements, but rather act as a guide and checklist for evaluation.

White Paper Published By: Zycus     Published Date: Nov 30, 2009
If the go-go 1990s, with its fast money and flush credit seeking rapid and steep returns, created the demand for "renaissance" Chief Financial Officers ("CFO"), who could manage (and market) both the strategic and financial operations of the enterprise, the more sobering decade that followed led directly to the creation and subsequent rise of the Chief Procurement Officer ("CPO"), who could reduce costs, build internal relationships, and develop strategic suppliers efficiently and effectively.

White Paper Published By: Electric Cloud     Published Date: Oct 13, 2009
In this whitepaper I argue that the person most affected by the introduction of agile or extreme programming techniques is not the software or quality assurance engineer, but the build manager. And the build manager can no longer make do with home grown tools; software production automation tools are required to make agile development a build reality.

Drive quality earlier in the development process with continuous testing. Large development organizations have increasingly been adopting select agile practices to enable faster development, create more reliable software, and reduce costs. Chief among these practices is providing developers early and frequent feedback from users, from other developers, and especially from the programming, build, and test tools. In the latter category, continuous integration and continuous testing are emerging as valuable techniques for identifying errors early so they can be corrected immediately by the developer who made the code changes.

White Paper Published By: Tidal Software     Published Date: Sep 03, 2008
IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.
