System Team Responsibilities
The System Teamis a specialized Agile Team that assists in building and using the Agile development environment, including Continuous Integration, test automation and Continuous Deployment. The System Team supports the integration of assets from Agile teams, performs end-to-end Solutiontesting where necessary and assists with deployment and release.
Collocation, Collaboration, and Knowledge Sharing
The collocation of Agile team members and the blurring of the traditional roles optimizes velocity and quality. It also helps create empowered Agile teams. However, this means that developers no longer operate collectively from a shared resource pool, where one could argue that it was easier to learn, share, and advance collective competencies. To address this, the Agile enterprise must consciously create a culture and environment where best practices and knowledge are shared. This includes new-found Agile skills such as story writing, Continuous Exploration, Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, collective code ownership, and automated unit and acceptance testing, which are easily shared across teams. This is often facilitated by Communities of Practice.
As implied above, the Dev Team is directly responsible for much of the culture and many of the practices necessary for building the Continuous Delivery Pipelineand implementing DevOps. To this end, their ‘T-shaped’ skill training also includes developing expertise in developing and managing staging and deployment environments and mastering techniques for independently releasing elements of the larger Solution. They assume additional responsibilities for following the code downstream and into production. This further blend traditional siloed responsibilities such that Agile teams, and even individual developers, can master the ability to Release on Demand.
Design for Testability
Since all code is tested code, developers design and evolve the system to support testability and test automation. In practice, designing for testabilityand good design are synonymous and imply modularity, low coupling, and high cohesion of layers, components, and classes. This supports the testability of any separate fragment of logic, as well as the ability to create higher, system-level, integration tests. In a similar manner, the solution should be designed to make it easy to deploy and release.
