Bring In More Agility To SCRUM By Integrating Continuously

Bring In More Agility To SCRUM By Integrating Continuously

For over a decade, agile methodology has proved to be a panacea to all or any or the developmental ills faced by software developers. This incremental and iterative method of development defined and paved a whole new way for how software delivery worked. This also resolved the glitches and dear deadline misses that regimental methods brought in.

Now, with evolving needs,

Is The Traditional SCRUM Method Sufficient In IT Software Delivery?

Insufficient, mainly because service-oriented delivery of software possesses to see subtle changes; this primarily addresses the not-so-obvious pain points of agile methodology such as constant close collaboration throughout testing, incurring time overheads, etc.

Secondly, the price factor of a project incorporating agile methodology is subjective to the process. This again, is primarily thanks to the scope creep that is addressed throughout the development process and along with it agile methodology brings an ambiguity in pricing due to a lack of incremental build.

Advantage Of CI With Agile Methodology

With Continuous Integration (CI) working in tandem with agile methodology, incremental project development is achieved.

As each member of the team integrates a number of times every day, these integrations are validated by a build that’s automated, and testing is regressively done to spot errors (if any) as early as possible. This eliminates the need for continuous close collaboration that is otherwise required in conventional agile methodology, thus saving resource utilization time.

With incremental builds generated and delivered, fixed pricing models are often tweaked to realize a common ground with the client.

How STS Does It

In order to eliminate the bottlenecks STS does not classify entire projects under the level of complexity, instead, we break down entire projects into short stories and then classify those under the level of complexity. This act helps us reproduce the last word deliverable in small individual builds to envisage the value addition.

And also having incorporated agile methodology with continuously integrating builds, we ensure there’s no deviation within the builds even if the teams working are in a distributed environment.

In conclusion, the concept of Integrating Continuously with SCRUM will enable faster plug by giving the teams the posh of working in a close domain. Hence, whenever an integration failure is identified, teams can spring into action with not having to travel back to the drawing board to do the root cause analysis.
