November Meeting – Scaling Agile: A Real Life Experience
The next Agile Edmonton user group meeting will be on Wednesday, November 4th at noon.
PAS: Scaling Agile – A real life experience
PAS was a joint venture development initiative by 4 major oil and gas companies and CGI. Devon, Encana, Husky and Talisman joined with CGI to develop a new Production and Revenue Application. Each company put 3 senior business resources on the project. The development component of the PAS initiative cost $35M over 5 years with up to 90 people on the team. This presentation is on how we used Agile to achieve this mammoth undertaking.
The product is currently running in production at 5 major oil and gas companies with great reviews. It is also in production for several mid and smaller sized companies. CGI is currently marketing the product.
