Rally Software Launches Nationwide Agile Success Tour

BOULDER, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 25, 2009— Rally Software Development Corp. ®, the leader in Agile application lifecycle management (ALM), today announced the Agile Success Tour, a series of interactive half-day seminars for software and IT executives who are currently adopting or considering adopting Agile development practices. The free seminars will be held in Denver on March 18, Los Angeles on March 26 and New York on April 2.

In its December 2008 report, “Lean Software is Agile, Fit-To-Purpose, and Efficient,” Forrester Research wrote, “The trend toward lean software has been building for years, but the worldwide recession is accelerating it. All application development professionals should know why and how to incorporate lean software into their software strategies for the future.”

The Agile Success Tour will focus on how development organizations can adopt Agile and Lean practices to achieve the measurable results that today's economic climate demands – faster time-to-market, improved productivity, and fewer defects.

“Now is the perfect time for organizations to lower their development costs by improving team productivity and cutting waste,” said Ryan Martens, founder and CTO of Rally Software. “Our goal for the success tour is that attendees get a crash course in how they can leverage the proven cost-saving benefits of Agile development and leave with the first steps needed to be successful.”

“Rally held its pilot event for the Agile Success Tour in Austin, and it was incredible,” said Scott Killen, President of the Agile Austin users' group. “The event brought together a variety of software and IT executives in different stages of their Agile adoption and started some very insightful conversations within our local community. I think we all left the event buzzing with ideas about how to improve our software development practices.”

Attendees of the Agile Success Tours will:

  • Hear real-life Agile implementation stories from companies like AOL, Avaya, Beatport, BMC, Condé Nast Digital, eCollege, Gorilla Nation, MPower IT, NBC Universal, Qualcomm, Real Capital Markets and Spatial
  • Find out what worked, what didn't, and the lessons learned from peers and other Agile experts
  • See how every aspect of the development organization can benefit from adopting Agile practices
  • Network with other technology leaders searching to implement development best practices
  • Ask questions during an interactive Q&A session
  • Create a real plan for Agile adoption at their organization

Each event will include an executive roundtable discussion made up of Agile industry leaders and users, an open space breakout session where attendees can guide the conversation, and an in-depth review of how Agile practices can measurably cut costs using data from a report completed by QSM Associates.
