Seapine Agile Experts Discuss Bridging Gaps, Agile Business Case at TechNet-Aero 2011

Do requirements still matter in an Agile environment? What is the business case for Agile, and why is the market moving toward Agile solutions? Agile experts from Seapine Software will answer these questions and more at the TechNet-Aero Conference in Dayton, Ohio, October 17-20. Peter Varhol, Seapine solutions evangelist, will present “Requirements and Agile: Keeping up with Change,” a presentation about how to bridge the gaps between traditional requirements and user stories. Peter will show how to reduce documentation needs while still maintaining a minimal level of more formal requirements for validation and traceability. Alan Bustamante, senior Agile consultant for Seapine’s Agile Services group, will also be on hand to present “Only the Agile Survive: Understanding the Business Case for Agile.” Alan will discuss the bare essentials of Agile and the reasons behind the market’s move toward Agile solutions. He will also share some personal observations about successful implementations, including his experience with diverting almost $200,000 USD in project funds to another higher priority initiative, which was only possible with Agile methods. Seapine Software will also be exhibiting at the conference in booth 405. TechNet Aero (formerly AeroTech) is conducted annually by the Dayton-Wright Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) since 1990. Over 2,600 industry, government, and academic professionals interested and working in all dimensions of business and defense technologies attend. The trade show features industry and government displays and demonstrations of emerging technologies.
