Carson Holmes, EVP of Software Delivery for Software Development Experts, explains how their Software Development Practice Advisor helps businesses with process improvement across the software delivery lifecycle.
They have boiled down their prior experience into concrete body of practices, which business can pick from. The business can then see if things like test-driven development or a particular agile practice are working in their environment. The advisor integrates with IBM Rational Jazz suite and other ALM technologies to harvest data from projects to determine how they are performing within the organization based on the practice they have chosen.
On the subject of skills required by the market right now, Carson suggests that students need both the technology skills and collaboration skills – to understand how their business and the end users derive value from the products they deliver.
