  • What is SCM?

9
What is SCM ?
  • Software Configuration Management (SCM)
  • A discipline that supports and controls
    modifications to all key assets within a software
    development lifecycle
  • Integrates with all other lifecycle stages and
    tools
  • The primary components of an effective SCM
    solution include ALL of the following
  • Version Control Process Management
  • Audit and Security Build Management
  • Change Management Release Management
  • Task Management

10
Common SCM Tasks
  • Version Control
  • Check out/check in
  • Revision history
  • Branching and merging
  • Project views
  • Change Management
  • Defect tracking
  • Enhancement lists
  • Requirement specification
  • Linking/traceability
  • Task Management
  • Task creation/status
  • Recording work
  • Process Management
  • Workflow definition
  • Entry/exit criteria
  • Notifications
  • Approval tracking
  • Security enforcement
  • Build Management
  • Compilation
  • Identifying dependencies
  • Release Management
  • Labeling
  • Promotion States
  • Deployment

11
Why Care About SCM ?
  • Meta Group
  • To increase relevance and cut costs, Global
    2000 organizations must consider coordination of
    key life-cycle phases, such as requirements
    analysis, testing and version control, and
    best-of-breed functionality when making vendor
    choices, to better and more efficiently manage
    application programs and projects.
  • Hurwitz Group
  • One of the most important pieces of application
    development is the management of the actual
    software development process, and CM is a method
    by which companies can keep track of that
    process.

12

22
Unified Repository For All Assets
StarTeams unique Project and View definitions
provide unlimited flexibility for
sharing/restricting assets
23
Automated File Status Tracking
Group By options let developers perform bulk
operations quickly
24
Flexible Branching and Merging
Powerful branching and merging capabilities make
parallel development easy, no matter what the
size of the team or the number of concurrent
releases
Viewing branches or performing time travel is
just a matter of a few mouse clicks
Graphical wizards quickly create branches and
provide prompting merging when necessary
25
Customizable Filters and Queries
Options include sorting, grouping, queries,
context, and column order and membership
Filter definitions are defined graphically,
without the need for programming experience
These filters and queries can either be
user-specific or public objects that any other
StarTeam user can select
26
Multi-Level Labels and Promotion States
StarTeam includes a unique 2-level labeling
ability that allows for both component and build
labels
Promotion states provide an additional level of
abstraction so that dynamic views can easily be
defined for lifecycle stages
27
Integrated Change Management
Change requests record defects, enhancements,
suggestions, etc.
Change requests are native objects that the
StarTeam Server understands
Change requests definitions can easily be
customized with custom fields and forms
Change requests can be entered in StarTeam or
synchronized from other defect tracking sources
28
Integrated Requirements Management
Requirements are native objects that the StarTeam
Server understands
Requirements can be entered in StarTeam or
synchronized from CaliberRM
29
Integrated Task Management
Tasks are native objects that the StarTeam Server
understands
Tasks can be entered in StarTeam or synchronized
from Microsoft Project
30
Customizable Workflow Forms
Graphical workflow definition allows
customization of StarTeam process rules and
enforces standards
Alternate Property Editors provide custom user
interface and can be setup for all object types
Make the process fit your environment - not the
other way around!
Alternate Property Editors are also stored in
StarTeam Server as configuration items
Workflow definition stored in StarTeam Server as
configuration items so client deployment is
automatic

33
Setting the stage What is Requirements
Management?
34
What is Requirements Management?
A continuous process of managing requirements
from their inception to implementation and
maintenance.
  • Requirements Management
  • Ensures a project meets end-user needs that are
    feasible and within approved project scope.
  • Establishes a common understanding of
  • Business Requirements
  • User Requirements
  • Functional Requirements
  • Nonfunctional Requirements
  • Manages changes to those requirements.

Sources of Defects
Note Most Studies have shown that requirement
errors typically constitute between 40 and 60 of
the total number of errors, while design and code
defects combined attribute to only a third of the
errors. Thats a pretty significant difference.

Approaches to Requirements
43
Three approaches to requirements automation
  • Document-centric requirements
  • CaliberRM 6.0 provides many benefits in a very
    easy to use GUI. Through the use of HTML, and
    improvements in editing and document production,
    CaliberRM is leading the way. CaliberRM is now
    the momentum leader in this space.
  • Developer-centric requirements
  • CaliberRM integrations into CB, TCC, TJB,
    VS.NET, and Delphi (C, JB and Eclipse coming
    soon) ensure that the developers are always and
    easily kept in the know. If the developer
    isnt made aware of the requirements, why bother
    doing them? CaliberRM is the clear leader in
    this space.
  • Infrastructure-centric requirements
  • CaliberRM has an open API and the ability to
    amplify the Voice of the Customer throughout the
    ALM. Live link integration without the need for
    import / export is also a clear technical
    advantage. CaliberRM is the clear leader in this
    space.

44
Building a requirements community
  • Begin with requirements expertswho understand
    the importance of requirements automation
  • Add subject matter expertswho want to express
    requirements in the ways that make sense to them
  • Support the management of additional definition
    artifactsUse Cases, Scenarios, Storyboards,
    Requests, User stories, etc.
  • Provide a variety of output formats targeted at
    various demographics
  • Use change notificationto ensure everyone stays
    in the loop
  • Integrate with other key ALM technologiesand
    customize to fit your process

45
Metcalfes Law
  • Metcalfe's Law the value of a network grows by
    the square of the size of the network.
  • Originally referring to network theory, it can
    also be extended to the network of subject
    matter experts and stakeholders defining a system
    (or building an ALM project) a network of
    people or capability network
  • Due of Metcalfe's Law, the largest network
    always wins over smaller networks, even if the
    smaller network has some larger initial value due
    to some special-purpose feature or benefit.
  • As the size of the network increases, the value
    accelerates

46
Augmentation and aggregation are key
47
Borland ALMAnd CaliberRM
48
ALM Fundamentals
  • Attention is the scarce resource solutions must
    help clients manage signal-to-noise ratio
  • Unfiltered information must be available
    solutions which require summary translation from
    medium-to-medium change the message
  • Context switching must be minimized solutions
    which force users to continually change contexts
    steal productivity
  • Member aggregation is more important than the
    amount or type of resource owned
  • Value increases exponentially as stakeholders are
    engaged in the process

52
What happens without integration?
  • Cutting the value network into pieces
  • The law is usually quoted in terms of growth of
    the network, but we can run Metcalfe's Law in
    reverse and use it to characterize the effect of
    cutting a network into pieces
  • The value of partitioning a network into N
    isolated components is 1/N'th the value of the
    original network.
  • Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox, (http//www.useit.com/al
    ertbox/990725.html)

54
So, what does that mean?
  • With tight integration momentum, velocity and
    synergy help deliver value

Poorly Integrated
  • Without tight integration, potential value lies
    untapped
  • Momentum from each discipline is self contained
  • No cross-project synergies

Tightly Integrated
