Abstract: Scrum is one of the leading agile software development processes. Numerous conference talks, certification offers and specialized consulting companies drive managers and software developers into using this framework in their projects. But with all things that are shiny and new, people tend to overestimate its merits but also to underestimate the changes needed in their organizations, their processes and habits and last but not least their software architectures. The talk gives an insight into practical implementations of Scrum in complex environments and the problems that arise beyond the „Hello World“ of Scrum as well as possible solutions.

Speaker: Andreas Gärtner graduated in Computer Science at a time where Java just began to overtake C++, Object Orientation was the only relevant architectural concept and nobody questioned the rule of Relational Database Systems. Scrum had been a term only known to hard-core Rugby fans. Today Andreas is a partner at Senacor Technologies and has experienced how the (IT-)world has changed. Being a long-year product owner in an agile software development project, Andreas is able to share his rich experience in that area.
