In the second part of Agile Pragmatically - Best Practices I dealt with practices which help us at PosAm to get a grip of the reality which is often far away from an ideal situation as described in literatures. Complexity is not necessarily being complex in terms of technology or domain, it may also be induced by the problem of size such as that of a team, which is the topic to be detailed today.
Voice of experts
In the first part of Agile Pragmatically - A Paradigm Shift I focused on the root causes that lead IT companies to a change in the approach in software development. At the same time, I pointed out the way to ensure higher efficiency of delivery procedures. It consists in a change of methodologies for software development. At PosAm, we have implemented the agile approach. We have identified its advantages in reflecting the present day's reality in system development, and pointed out the benefits. However, there are always some Buts.
In many sectors, software is the essential building element of value-creating processes in a business. The complexity of systems grows hand in hand with the proliferation of software systems and their coverage of the business processes, as well as the complexity of the environment where we integrate a new system. The pace of changes is speeding up, and the degree of uncertainty and interference by different factors is on the rise. Undoubtedly, the work done by software specialists is of growing significance, and a vendor's success in implementing a software work directly affects the profit or loss of a customer.
It is commonly noted that the purchase of IT solutions or services by company clients is strongly based on personal relations. It would appear that the ties of the customer with the IT supplier are therefore set in stone. In this context, a recent survey from TNS and PosAm produced an interesting result. It showed that it was not possible to talk about unchanging relationships at all in the purchase of IT services.

Nowadays, thinking about IT with your “head in the clouds” is a standard route for many IT managers for the development of their information systems or as a way of improving existing operation and making it more cost efficient. Do you prefer a private cloud, or will you rely on a public provider? You don’t always have to pick a side, as there is also a “golden” middle way: hybrid cloud, or hybrid IT.
