Agile Development in an SAP Landscape
My team is looking to shift from a 'regular', waterfall-type development methodology which delivers 2 large functional releases per year to a more flexible, nimble project based approach based on Agile Development methodologies.
The goal is to be able to treat each project independently from a resource and scheduling perspective - so multiple projects could be underway at any one time but each one potentially running on a different time line. Of course, life-cycle support for the production environment would be on-going at the same time.
The problem we face is defining an SAP system landscape that supports this approach and that allows for the management of the inevitable conflicts that will arise when different projects require changes to the same development object.
I'm interested to hear feedback from anyone who has implemented an Agile Development approach within an SAP environment ( successfully or not ! ) as well as ideas for what a possible Agile SAP landscape could look like.
