We'll compare characteristics of Plan Driven and Agile Software Development so that we know where these things came from and what we can expect out of them. What we ultimately came to understand as Plan Driven or Waterfall Software Development originated with the 1979 IEEE paper from Winston Royce "Managing the Development of Large Software Systems.

The idea of Waterfall was that one phase wouldn't begin until the previous was complete. However, if your team moves from coding phase to testing phase then things will have implications back in the development phase (so we found a bug, he'll fix it).

Another very interesting thing the longer the project goes on, the more the design is going to be understood and fleshed out. Therefore, you can never design a system in the beginning and understand it all the way through to its completion. The design of a system will evolve the more we understand the better requirements.

Software development teams are focused on delivering pieces of a product. The last thing most of them want to do is be in meetings. One thing that's going to take them away from doing that is being in a meeting. So what scrum does really well is provide the minimum set of meetings necessary.

All events are timed boxed events that are such that every event has a maximum duration depenting on sprint duration:

The term "System Development Life Cycle" or SDLC' is an standard industry term used in systems engineering, information systems and software engineering to describe a process for planning, creating, testing, and deploying an information system.

Each of the phases has a series of events or steps that are completed in order to arrive at the final product. It comprises of 5 phases:

The Planning Phase

  • Defining the problem
  • Setting project objectives
  • Identifying constraints
  • Creating project proposals
  • Establishing control mechanisms

The Analysis Phase

  • Creating the project team
  • Idefining information needs
  • Identification and evaluation of sources of information
  • Identification and description of the types of information needed to analyse the system
  • Identification and description of problem areas in the current system
  • Information flow and needs documented using system modeling tools
  • Identification and description of problem areas in the current system
  • Defining system performance
  • Creating a design proposal

The Design Phase

  • Factors to be considered when designing the output requirements
  • Factors to be considered when designing the input requirements
  • Processing requirements
    Evaluating alternative system configurations
  • Select best configuration
  • Prepare implementation proposal

The Implementation Phase

  • Planning and announcing the implementation
  • Acquisition of new equipment (H/W and S/W)
  • Preparing the physical facilities
  • Educating users
  • Developing an implementation schedule
  • Commissioning of the new system

The Use/Evaluation Phase

  • Using the system
  • Auditing the system
  • Maintaining the system
  • Re-engineering proposals

The first stop for Estonia e-Residents service could be our site https://e-resident.gov.ee/faqs/business/ You can find basic information and contacts on establishing a company and possibilities to use e-residency smart card.

Private Limited Company (OÜ or Osaühing in Estonian) is the most popular type of business entity set up by foreigners in Estonia. This type of business has a minimum share capital requirement of € 2,500, which does not necessarily have to be transferred before beginning operations with the company. You can also use the share capital once it’s been transferred to the company’s bank account, for business activities.

In this case, the process would be as follows:

SAP PI (Process Integration) is an integration platform which provides seamless integration between SAP and non-SAP applications within the organization A2A (Application to Application) or even outside the organization B2B (Business to Business). But this was a technical aspect of SAP PI, but to understand this better we will see the example of implementation of SAP PI.

The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) is a composite index that summarises relevant indicators on Europe’s digital performance and tracks the evolution of EU member states in digital competitiveness.

Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands have the most advanced digital economies in the EU followed by Luxembourg, Belgium, the UK and Ireland. Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy have the lowest scores on the DESI.

In 2016, all Member States improved on the DESI. Slovakia and Slovenia progressed the most (more than 0.04 as opposed to an EU average of 0.028). On the other hand, there was low increase in Portugal, Latvia and Germany (below 0.02).

Bitcoin has been flying high lately, making many investors overnight millionaires—investors who poured money into the digital currency when it was trading at a tiny fraction of its current price. And it will make more millionaires, as it could reach for new highs before coming back down to earth.

There are a few good reasons for Bitcoin to do so. First of all there’s the ultra-low interest rate environment, which makes the Bitcoin “carry trade,” an appealing proposition.
