Understanding and addressing risk in systems and software delivery
In this paper, IBM proposes that organizations relying on the traditional waterfall process for systems and software delivery—that is, an engineering governance model—need to make changes to reduce risk and improve results. IBM proposes adoption of agile delivery practices—that is, an economic governance model—for attaining significant improvements.
Wizardry at your fingertips–Making tough decisions easier with predictive analytics
Did you ever wish you could have a wizard at your fingertips, to help you make tough program and project decisions easier? IBM develops technical wizardry and makes it more accessible. One of the ways we do this is by encapsulating difficult problems into models, which can then be made available to those who need solutions in a more consumable way. Learn how IBM Rational helps make tough program and project management decisions easier. Murray Cantor and Brian Nolan, speakers.
Agile Development for Safety-Critical Systems: Analysis-Oriented Practices
