The Agile Application Modernization Project

This month I have been working with my colleague Denzil Wasson to define an agile project approach to Application Modernization.

In a previous report I introduced the Application Modernization process decomposing it into Disciplines, Process Unit and Tasks. In this report, Denzil and I discuss an agile project structure and organization and provide a detailed breakdown of the Application Modernization process in terms of Project Phases and Work Packages, starting with the Assess and Plan phases.

This approach to application modernization will allow an escalation from a solution specific modernization effort to an enterprise SOA effort over time. It can be viewed as the pragmatic middle ground between a difficult to motivate enterprise level SOA and successive SOA projects that will inevitably lead to service anarchy.

The complete report contains a full process decomposition identifying tasks, inputs and deliverables, plus process diagrams.See CBDI Journal Index (modernization tab) for details

Here's slideshare presentation summarizing the introduction to the report
