7 Agenda Introduction Getting started with Agile Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge 3 Test automation Automated unit test System test in India Conclusion

8 Getting started with Agile Scrum One month sprints root causes and consolidation tasks Iterative Small corrections released Challenges Testing too time consuming Code corrections too time consuming No test automation tool support Team Dedicated and committed team

9 Agile practices (from agilemanifesto.org) Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly

10 Agenda Introduction Getting started with Agile Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge 3 Test automation Automated unit test System test in India Conclusion

11 Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge Testing is extremely time consuming Causes All functionality in one program Complex test data needed Shared test environment across projects

12 Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Solution Requirement to new system design with high testability

13 Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Agile principle Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility Status Now: Any change tested in 1-2 days Future: Any change tested the same day

14 Agenda Introduction Getting started with Agile Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge 3 Test automation Automated unit test System test in India Conclusion

15 Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge: Code corrections difficult and time consuming Causes Lacking maintainability and extendibility Undocumented functionality Solution Requirement to system maintainability Refactoring System documentation

16 Challenge 2 Legacy system Agile principle Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential Status Now: Main batch program completed Future: All functionality in the invoice flow

17 Agenda Introduction Getting started with Agile Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge 3 Test automation Automated unit test System test in India Conclusion

33 Challenge 3 Test automation Challenge Status of the system not visible Causes Automated test not possible Solution Build our own unit test tool Utilize internal offshore test center for system test

34 Challenge 3 Test automation Agile principle Working software is the primary measure of progress Status Now: Status on modules on request Now: Status on main batch program on request (daily) Future: Daily status on the entire invoice flow

35 Agenda Introduction Getting started with Agile Challenge 1 Huge batch programs Challenge 2 Legacy system Challenge 3 Test automation Automated unit test System test in India Discussion and conclusion

36 Lessons learned Scrum supports a good start on agile Key learning Requirement to Testability Requirement to Maintainability Build own tool Benefits from design before implementing it It can be difficult but it is not impossible!

37 Agile or not? What does it take to be agile? Compliance with the Agile principles supporting the Agile manifesto

38 Principles behind the Agile Manifesto Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation Working software is the primary measure of progress Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly

39 Agile or not? What does it take to be agile? Compliance with the Agile principles supporting the Agile manifesto We are agile!

40 Questions

41 Conclusion Did we managed to become agile or did we just made a huge improvement in our development process and in our test process in particular? I think, we did both! Huge process improvements Started the agile journey
