Development with agile teams
The residential property information system was kick-started by defining architecture and doing internal testing before the development phase. Listening to users has been important in every turn.
“Besides the internal testing, we have demoed the service for different stakeholders throughout the project and been listening with a sensitive ear”, Anu Laaksonen, Project Manager at the National Land Survey of Finland, says.
The residential property information system has been developed with scrum, in two-week sprints.
“In every team there is a requirement analyst, developers, and a tester. We have been especially focusing on how information flows and how different teams doing different parts of the project collaborate. We have also mixed teams every once in a while, to enable learning and to enhance communications”, Laaksonen tells.
The members of a multivendor team are working at the office of the National Land Survey of Finland, and there’s no separation between different team members. The chemistry between Siili has been exceptionally good.
“Cooperation with Siili has been excellent, and Siili has always provided to our needs: we have managed to get good experts who fit into teams”, Turunen smiles.
