Since much of the implementation work for RSA Archer involves configuring, the platform lends itself particularly well to an agile development approach.
But a 100% agile approach doesn’t always work within traditional development environments. At the annual RSA Archer Summit, October 21-23 in Chicago, I’ll be presenting a talk along with Kevin Corbett from BMO Harris Bank called “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls: An Agile Approach to Configuring RSA Archer” (Thursday, October 22, 3:45pm-4:30pm in Room E351).
(Our colleague John Heuer has written previously about the hybrid agile-waterfall (watergile?) approach that Iceberg has developed.)
We’re planning to make this an interactive presentation, diving into the pros and cons of waterfall vs. agile approach when it comes to Archer. We’re hoping to hear from Archer users in the audience and start a good discussion around their best practices as well. Kevin and I have different perspectives in a number of areas so it should be a lively discussion, and maybe even a bit of a debate as we get going.
