Adopting Agile Methods for Safety-Critical systems development
Date: Thursday, September 27, 2012
2:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM PT / 18:00 GMT (Duration: 1 hour)
Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive but undisciplined and lacking in robustness. In actual fact, agile requires a great deal of discipline and its practices enhance both quality and team productivity. Because of the discipline and efficiency that agile brings to development, agile can be – and is – applied to the development of safety critical systems. Join IBM expert Bruce Douglass in this webcast to learn how agile methods can be used in the development of safety critical systems to deliver high quality results with improved predictability.
