Let me see a show of hands, who favours the statement by Jorgen, and who favors the one by Emiel ?
Welcome at my talk, which will cover the architecture in an agile working environment
We certrainly know that enterprise architects do not offer enough detail in their guiding for the team to be of practical use
Scrum is by far the most popular agile method currently used.And just to give you an XP example, Google recently launched BigQuery, a BI toolset, this product was developed in 90 days, in those 90 days, 100 releases saw the light.
PA is basically the startup concept, where you empower a programmer and make him the driving force behind the productOpen data & hackaton combined was seen in the Philips Design “Big Data Visualisation”, where programmers and other parties interested, used open data in a session @ Philips, during 2 days, to come up with interesting use cases. Euro prices were awarded. If you get 50 people to come to your office in their free time, with chances of no incentive, this save you more that 50000 Euro
We need some strategies to choose from, they can be combined
