Innovate 2014 Presentation: SDLC Transformation @ Paychex



For the second year in a row I was invited to present at IBM Innovate, which is a conference hosted by IBM and focused on concepts such as Continuous Engineering, DevOps and Agile.

My topic was titled “SDLC Transformation: How Paychex Began Adopting Rational CLM (+Agile) and Adapted Along the Way”.  In this session, we focused on a few key topics:

  • Going “behind the scenes” to see what an SDLC Transformation really looks like
  • Condensing 3 years of success/failure into 60 minutes
    • From waterfall to agile
    • From miscellaneous tools to the Rational suite (RTC,RRC,RQM)
  • Hear 5 important lessons that we learned as an organization

Below are the slides.  We had a great crowd and some fantastic questions/discussions about agile transformations at organizations and how to manage some of the challenges.
