Eclipse Duttile produces a shared Agile/Lean methodology that links the tools and utilities available in the Eclipse IoT ecosystem.
People that use Eclipse Duttile form a full delivery team that follow the AgileIoT manifesto philosophy, principles and practices, working in Agile and Lean manners to improve the efficacy and efficiency of their daily actions.
The need of an new methodology come from the multi-domains that characterizes an IoT solution, with their own rules and specifications related to different aspects: The Hardware, with strong and predictable processes, the Software, where the complexity and the change is always present, the Cloud and Big Data with its own rules and risks.
Today, typically, hybrid software and hardware solutions are developed in a parallel way with synchronization meetings useful to start the integration process and, subsequently, to the test process.
This is a typical Big Bang Integration approach, with different critical issues:
Development efficiency is heavily penalized as different teams don’t constantly communicate with each other, without sharing their knowledge;
Issues are discovered in the late solution development phase, with high fixing problems, mostly due to the hardware fixing;
As of the need of shortening / respect the time-to-market, the final product, often, has a compromised solution to problems (based on software workaround, wherever components cannot perfectly integrate with each other), thus lowering the global product quality.
Eclipse Duttile affords all this aspects in a holist mode to best perform different goals typically annexed with a professional marketable IoT Solutions. Eclipse Duttile is based on the Philosophy, Values and Principles of the AgileIoT Manifesto, that you can find at: agileiot.org
In this talk we would show what is Eclipse Duttile ad how it can help you in your daily work to best achieve business goals.
Eclipse Duttile is an italian OSS project, and the proposal is in the Draft state. The public review will be open in July.
