As an architect, I want to do things, so that my Enterprise remains Agile


Yashasree Barve has been working as a technologist in Tata Consultancy Services since last 13 years. She has an extensive experience in delivering solutions for Enterprises. She has executed and worked on several projects in the role of a developer, designer and architect across multiple domains such as Insurance, Retail, and Hi Tech using various technologies such as Java, Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE), Ruby on Rails and such. She is passionate about Agile methodology and Open Source. As a TOGAF Certified Enterprise architect, she has always pondered how role of an architect has changed from traditional models to the agile world. She plays a key role as a core member of the Architecture CoE for the Agile Enterprise she works for. She is also a core member of the Agile community in TCS evangelizing Agile within TCS by bringing the community together and organizing internal conferences.

Enterprises and Enterprise Architectures are complex animals. When Enterprises adopt agile, it brings on its own unique challenges. Our Agile teams (typically the architect or the senior developer) have to ensure that all the pieces of the Enterprise puzzle remain intact while they travel the agile way. This includes ensure high quality while delivering frequently, follow enterprise specific architecture patterns while the architecture evolves, take care of non functional requirements such as security, performance, availability etc. Agile also brings us the risk of applications being support's nightmare, though it is developers' delight when it comes to documentation. As an architect, we needed to think about knowledge retention within the Enterprise, knowledge transition to support teams. We also have to help the agile teams to scale the agility while they work with traditionally not-so-agile support teams such as infrastructure, application support teams of the enterprise. During my talk, I would like to dive deep into these challenges that we face everyday, and the practices that we have followed over last few years while adopting and sustaining agile in our Enterprise. I would also like to introduce a few next practices that we are playing with to sustain the enterprise IT agility. I would like to conduct this session in the form of various examples, challenges from my experience, and share how we as an agile group worked towards being agile!


Basic knowledge of Agile

Benefits for the attendees

The Agile Architects and Developers would benefit from my experience sharing about sustaining agile in an Enterprise. They would have some new thoughts and ideas to make things work that they can carry with them and experiment when they go back to their teams.
