I’ll start with my three favorite things about agile methods:
Expanding on this, one of the most tangible ways I’ve seen agile methods impress is in improving the amount of focus of activity to get the first release of a solution into production. This solves the problem that many organizations have, which is that their projects seem to drag on forever without actually delivering anything.
Agile methods normally achieve this level of focus by planning short-term, using iterations, and by measuring progress in terms of functionality produced by each increment. This works very well as teams are motivated by short-term success. After all, success breeds success! Also, if there are any issues with the project’s delivery capability they will soon be encountered early in the project life cycle rather than being hidden until late. The sooner the issues are identified, the sooner they can be resolved.
Turning to SOA, it’s important to note that many of the important benefits of SOA are realized when building “long-term IT solutions.” It’s fundamentally about building your software in such a way that it improves the long-term costing and flexibility of your IT solutions.1 The following define the usage of “long term” and “short term”:
Agile methods have achieved huge success when approaching short-term IT solutions. However, I have seen issues arise when these same methods have been applied to SOA “long-term solutions.”
This doesn’t need to be the case. The challenge for our agile SOA projects is to stay simple to understand and to keep a short-term focus while adding the necessary support to plan and design SOA solutions and addressing the long-term considerations of the solutions you deliver.
Before we move on to look at my development process, I’d like to outline this challenge by mentioning some of the issues we want to avoid when building SOA solutions:
A number of practices already mentioned contribute to minimizing these costs:up-to-date agile specifications, built-in flexibility, and extensibility through design specifications. An overriding focus on functional delivery at the expense of these practices will mean that any “savings” made by taking shortcuts in the delivery of the first production release will be heavily outweighed by later resulting costs.
