Titel der Keynote: Be Smart!
Datum und Uhrzeit: Dienstag, 10. März 2009, 09:15 Uhr
One of the most popular buzzwords in software development is agile. Today everyone wants to be agile. That is good! However, being agile is not enough.
For several years Dr. Ivar Jacobson has expressed that the most important character you need to have to be a great software developer is to be smart. What does that mean? Most people know intuitively what “being smart” means in everyday language, but what does it mean for software.
In this session, Dr. Ivar Jacobson will describe what it means to be smart when it comes to developing software from requirements through to deployment. And being smart is more than being agile!
Dr. Ivar Jacobson is a father of components and component architecture, use cases, aspect-oriented software development, the Unified Modelling Language and the Rational Unified Process. He is the principal author of six influential and best-selling books. Ivar Jacobson is the chairman of Ivar Jacobson International which has subsidiaries in the US, UK, Germany, Korea, China, Singapore, Australia and Sweden.
Titel der Keynote: HOOD Capability Model for CC&VM
Datum und Uhrzeit: Mittwoch, 11. März 2009, 16:15 Uhr
Once upon a time there where three baby cats, one called Change Management, one called Configuration Management and one called Version Management. They lost their Mother and didn't know what to do. They wandered around aimlessly.
Excellence in Change, Configuration and Version Management can only be achieved if the correct goals are identified and reached. As these supporting disciplines are intertwined, reaching a specific skill level in one discipline requires appropiate skills in the other disciplines in order to be effective. Change, Configuration and Version Management, CC&VM, are essential to enable other disciplines such as Project Management, Requirements Management, and Software Engineering. The HOOD Capability Model (HCM) for CC&VM shows us how to be successful, one step at a time.
We help the baby cats find their Mother.
Since 1977, Colin Hood has driven the evolution of the control systems from relay based systems, the Programmable Logic Controller (PLCs) up to modern software controlled systems. In various fields Colin Hood has been responsible for the analysis, design, implementation, testing and delivery of complex software systems.
Colin Hood´s methods have always involved application of Requirements Management & Engineering, which explains his success at companies such as Alcatel, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Hella, Interpolis and Miele. An expertise of Colin Hood is besides the improvement of processes within development departments, the support of the change process when implementing new methods or tools. This almost invariably necessitates a cultural change within the affected organisation.
Colin Hood is founder and Chairman of the HOOD Group and co-founder of the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB).
