What is most valuable?

In an Agile organization where you are searching for… more»

What needs improvement?

What we would like to know is how to use CDD in Agile, at scale, in our organization. We have rolled out the SAFe model, but what we would like to have is better integration with Agile Central, for instance, or at least at the plugin level, where we would select only certain stories, instead of many… more»

What other advice do I have?

As I said above, a tool is just a tool. What you need to do is more along the lines of thinking about how to roll out usage of the tool inside your organization. Rolling it out for a couple of teams is very easy. Rolling it out for people who are eager to change their way of working is very easy as… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at other solutions from other companies. At that time, CA was not ready with its solution.

CDD and RA should be two modules in the same product. They do not automatically “talk” to each other. and they require endpoint definition. If changed, we wouldn’t have two separate strategies for the… more»

We have not had issues with pricing/licensing.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you understand your firewall environment and decide up-front if you are using CDD or RA for orchestration.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Consider extra licenses for additional release pipelines (maintenance or hotfix releases, for instance).

What other advice do I have?
