Hello and welcome to the Agile Road show at Microsoft Singapore.We are really excited to have you here. I believe it is going to be awesome afternoon, we have got a great agenda for you. We have got outstanding speakers, great content and brilliant demos. To top it up we have good food as well…So hopefully you will enjoy the rest of the day with us.With that, lets get started…
What comes to your mind when you hear a word “Agile”?..wait for the answers....highlight giveaways…These are all valid answers. What I want to do today is to take a step back and share with you the big picture, the real business value of Agile patterns and practices. --For this I want you to take a journey with me where we look at the bigger picture. Where we see a real business value of using Agile patterns and practices. In this journey throughout the days we will gain some insights in to the hear of being AgileTo start this journey through this keynote I intend to convey three important messages to you:Software is pervasive, its everywhere and our business depends on it.Benefits of being AgileValue of integrated of set of tools that make Agile happen
The world runs on software:- Last 20-30 years have seen invasion of software into almost every aspect of our lives. If we look around we will find that the software is every where. I believe I don’t have to start counting things in this room that have software running but its not too difficult to imagine how pervasive software is. Its not that difficult to see that software plays an ever increasingly important part in out lives.
1- This is true even more so for our businesses where it has moved from a productive tool to a more strategic asset. Last week I was reading about the use of technology in Fish farming in Singapore. I was absolutely amazed to know that the business is only possible and feasible due to the advanced technology that they are using. Otherwise on their scale they may not make money out of it. I am sure that there so many similar examples around us where we see how software is delivering strategic value to the business.2- Software delivery end-to-end is still a risky process3- Inherent Complexity

Software drives the world …… but IT organizations seem increasingly driven! The ability to use, develop, integrate and deliver custom software is strategic for most organizations But unlike other strategic business processes, there are often large gaps – which is risky! No consistent processes are being applied Reporting on productivity, quality and value is missing Processes and activities are not predictable and repeatable Complexity of software and value opportunities grow without associated maturity and capabilities | 5

Manufacturing as InspirationManufacturing Sources of Waste App Development Equivalents1. Overproduction 1. Too many superfluous artifacts2. Waiting (time on hand) 2. Broken builds3. Unnecessary transport or 3. Too many tool transitions conveyance 4. Rigid architectures4. Over processing or incorrect processing 5. Analysis paralysis5. Excess inventory 6. Late discovery of defects6. Unnecessary movement 7. Rising downstream labor costs 8. Polluted SCM streams7. Defects 9. High null-release ratios8. Unused employee creativity 10. Measures of effort, not results | 32
Lean manufacturing or lean production, often simply Lean is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful. Value is defined as any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.Source: Wikipedia | 33

The Case for “Agile ALM” Software is fundamental to competitiveness today Custom application development is growing in importance because it provides measurable value Agile, delivery oriented methods are on the rise The lifecycle of applications needs to be managed end-to-end – it is not enough to “just” build them Cross platform is a realityDevelopment teams need tools that can handlemore than “just” core development tasks. | 37
Microsoft & ALM Why is Microsoft in the ALM business? Just one reason: to make application development and development teams on the Microsoft platform successful What is our approach?
