This guide will empower you to improve software development efficiency by implementing "rightsized" configuration management processes that fully align with Agile principles. World-class SCM experts show you how to implement agile configuration management and application lifecycle management practices that work in the real world, combining structure, traceability, and repeatability with shorter time-to-market and lower cost. The authors clearly describe the principles and practices that are essential to Agile SCM, explaining proven Agile technical and project management (PM) practices in detail, and showing how they can meet the critical compliance and IT governance challenges that face many large development organizations. You'll learn how to deploy realistic SCM practices in the context of supporting continuous integration, delivery and iterative development. Coverage includes: * Agile source code management, build engineering, environment management, change control, release engineering, and deployment * Supporting Agile in organizations that rely on non-Agile practices * Implementing highly effective Agile branching and overall variant management practices * Using Agile SCM with co-located small teams, larger teams, mixed agile/non-agile teams, and distributed/remote projects * Understanding the unique challenges of Agile SCM in virtualized and cloud environments
