SV: [scrumdevelopment] Re: Agile for ERP implementation
- Hi Archana,
Gerard Meszaros and Janice Aston presented an experience report on doing agile development on an ERP-project at Agile 2007 this year. They used many of the XP-practises. They found the tooling inadequate but rated the overall experience as much better than doing it the waterfall way.
You can find their presentation here:

Emne: [scrumdevelopment] Re: Agile for ERP implementation
What kind of engineering practices can be used for ERP.
eg: XP recommends use of refactoring, pair programming, continuous
build, integration, emphasis on test automation etc.
I am not quite sure how well can these be included in ERP
(SAP/Oracle apps) implementation projects. Thus,
1) Is there a real value add for such projects to go agile way
2) If there is a value add then what engineering practices / tools
can be coupled with the scrum managment practices to make the
project implement agile effectively?
Thanks in advance
