Why Agile Source Control?

Your old ways of work not working for you anymore?

It has been many years but it would seem the old dependency type implementation methods are a thing of the past having been replaced by agile methods, teams and streams that work in unison and in a much more flexible, fail fast manner.

Agility in your work has become an essential part of success. You need to prove the value first, reach the high impact benefits first, be able to re-prioritize and change direction at any stage of the work so how do you keep it all together?

Companies have invested in on-premise requirements management and incident management systems which work across the board and the business. Cloud SaaS solutions like Jira and Services Now have become household names but there are hundreds of these type systems that are supported both on-premise and in cloud. Running these systems across your business and managing the issues and requirements is important but when it comes to the management of data, decisions, actions it is important to ensure your decision support systems are well managed, quality controlled and auditable at any stage.

These systems end up being quite customized to certain processes and is not integrated to your business intelligence processes to ensure efficiency, active collaboration between business and IT or requirements stakeholders and developers and administrators or the systems.

What is the value of Agile Management?

  • Supports any agile methodology with boards such as a Kanban board with all issues in various development stages and responsibilities, stakeholders, deadlines etc.

  • Teams work in streams and resources are allocated according to your planning process and deliverable deadlines

  • Fail fast and much better solutioning methods when working in teams of different types of skills

  • Work collaboratively and always know the dependencies and workloads are managed

  • Always be on point with the plan and deliverable dates

  • Always be testing! Collaborate and ensure the product is what the stakeholder requires

  • Updates are managed daily
