  4. 4. Software development What we want just well defined process, well structured management In-depth software ”
  5. 5. Software development But what ’ s real? <ul><li>Realistic of developer </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Requirement </li></ul><ul><li>Changing Requirement </li></ul><ul><li>Meeting,reporting,education </li></ul><ul><li>Communication </li></ul><ul><li>Overtime job </li></ul><ul><li>Not tracked work </li></ul><ul><li>Realistic of manager </li></ul><ul><li>Always 99.999..% complete </li></ul><ul><li>Always overtime, but what is he doing? </li></ul><ul><li>When can I release? </li></ul><ul><li>What are risk items? </li></ul><ul><li>Wants know status of issue. </li></ul><ul><li>Task Priority </li></ul><ul><li>Realistic of software </li></ul><ul><li>A house of straw </li></ul><ul><li>Defects are discovered after freezing code </li></ul><ul><li>No testing for changing </li></ul><ul><li>Big bag integration </li></ul>The three little pigs ‘ A house of straw ’
  6. 6. <Insert Picture Here> <ul><li>Many Dr. and genius developed many methodologies </li></ul><ul><li>RUP,CBD,CMMI </li></ul><ul><li>Theories </li></ul>So …
  7. 7. <ul><li>There are only few genius </li></ul><ul><li>Theory is theory </li></ul><ul><li>We need more realistic and practical methodology </li></ul>But…
  8. 8. <ul><li>Practical development methodology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Erich Gamma, Joel Spolsky, Kent beck, Andrew Hunt </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Iterative & Incremental </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Based on agile </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Difference between traditional methodology. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Traditional methodology assumes that there are no change and no defect in each previous step. (eg. Waterfall model) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It assumes there are many potential defects, and focus on finding the defects by frequent testing . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It assumes there may be requirement changes, and try to accept the changes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus on collaboration and communication </li></ul></ul>What is alternative solution? Practical Development

  10. 10. ALM definition <ul><li>Definition from Wikipedia </li></ul><ul><li>Scope of ALM </li></ul>Application lifecycle management (ALM) is the marriage of business management to software engineering made possible by tools that facilitate and integrate requirements management, architecture, coding, testing, tracking, and release management.[1] <ul><li>Covers whole SDLC </li></ul><ul><li>Complex and getting theatrical </li></ul>
  11. 11. Current ALM market <ul><li>All of vendor uses ALM as a marketing message </li></ul><ul><ul><li>McCave just has testing solution, but they said “ We are ALM company ” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HP also has testing oriented solution, but they said “ We have ALM solution ” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>There are few pure ALM players but.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Serena, Polarion etc already has matured ALM product. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But it is complex and hard to apply. (needs genius) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>We need more practical ALM framework. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Depending on teams ’ maturity level. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Depending on customer ’ s mega process (methodology) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Depending on budget and time </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Four pillars of ALM <ul><li>Process </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cover software life cycle from requirement analysis,implementation to release. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Quality Control </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide capabilities to assure software quality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For example : testing, short release </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tracking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide visibilities and traceability of project activity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide traceability between deliverable. For example traceability between requirement to actual code </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Collaboration </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Especially collaborate with Biz dept,. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Requirement management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Task management etc </li></ul></ul>Process Quality Control Tracking Collaboration
  13. 13. <Insert Picture Here> Practical ALM Framework
  14. 14. Practical ALM <ul><li>Lightweight, more easier and practical </li></ul><ul><li>Composed with open source tools and cheap popular commercial tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Open source tools  Reduce learning curves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less investment  Free or cheap commercial tools </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Based on practical and agile methodology </li></ul>
  15. 15. Practical ALM use case scenario Developer Perspective <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><li>Developer goes to office in morning. </li></ul><ul><li>Run eclipse IDE. </li></ul><ul><li>In IDE, there are task list that are assigned to him. </li></ul><ul><li>He checks tasks with priority and pick up one. </li></ul><ul><li>Change a status of the task to  In Progress </li></ul><ul><li>Check out code from source code repository. </li></ul><ul><li>After implementation, he implement unit test with testing framework. </li></ul><ul><li>Execute test with standard build script. It automatically generate test result, code coverage rate and run code inspection. Code inspection shows illegal naming convention or potential bugs. </li></ul><ul><li>He fix the code and re-run the script. </li></ul><ul><li>He checks code coverage rate in eclipse IDE. After confirming the code coverage rate is meet target rate. He commit the code with the task ID. </li></ul><ul><li>CI (Contiguous Integration) system get a notify that main source repository has been changed. </li></ul><ul><li>It check out the code and run build script. </li></ul><ul><li>Compile and deploy the code to staging machine. </li></ul><ul><li>Run a test case. If test is broken. It automatically sends a notification to the developer and project manager. And then roll back the code in source repository and staging machine. </li></ul><ul><li>If the test is passed. it invokes code inspection and coverage analysis. If there is a problem (cannot match up target test code coverage rate or some static bug.) it will also report the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Developer notify that all of implementation has been done successfully. </li></ul><ul><li>He write a his work history in task management system thru eclipse IDE. and change a status to  Resolved </li></ul><ul><li>Project Manage get a notification the task is resolved. He check up a note of the task and task result etc. And then change a status of the task to Closed </li></ul><ul><li>Developer come back home. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Practical ALM use case scenario Project Leader/Manager perspective <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><li>Project manager attend on requirement meeting with customer. </li></ul><ul><li>He summarize meeting minutes and extract tasks from that with customer's agreement (or confirm) </li></ul><ul><li>He creates new tasks with priority. </li></ul><ul><li>He plans the task followed by project milestone. </li></ul><ul><li>He check up developer's load by using task management system to find who is under lower load.And assign it to appropriate person. </li></ul><ul><li>Project manager estimate task implementation time with assigned developers. </li></ul><ul><li>Project manager adjust plan with schedule and estimated time. </li></ul><ul><li>During the project, project manager tracking the task status and everyday adjust the tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>Project manager or senior developer checks project health status with unit testing result and code coverage rate. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition senior developer concentrate testing in high code complexity area. It is founded by code complexity analysis report from CI tool's daily build. </li></ul><ul><li>Project manager also manage risk by using project status report from task management tool and reports from CI tools. And he check up high priority Opened  task every day to control risk. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Practical ALM use case scenario Project Leader/Manager perspective <ul><li>Scenario </li></ul><ul><li>Customer side PM come to office in the morning. </li></ul><ul><li>Execute web browser and go to ALM dash board page. </li></ul><ul><li>Each project has one page dash board. It shows how many tasks are opened and closed for each milestone.How many pending tasks are there. How many critical tasks are opened. </li></ul><ul><li>He just notify potential risk and project healthy status by using the dash board. </li></ul><ul><li>Make a meeting with Project Manager or Project Leader to control the risks. </li></ul><ul><li>If he want to track the critical issue (task). He subscribe the task. All of comment and change are automatically reported. So he doesn't need to make a meeting or make a phone call to check up progress of the critical task. </li></ul>

Requirement cannot contain any child requirement. It is leaf node of requirement tree. Name of requirement has to have number to provide traceability. Ex) 2.1.1 Logging inbound transaction WorkingItem Working items for developer. Eg. Coding,debugging etc. Documentation Write deliverables as document on wiki or document Test Develop and execute test of “ Requirement ” . It includes implementing Unit Test,design, execute etc. Meeting Meeting about specific issue Bug N/A Bug reported by somebody(not a author) after every internal release phase.
