In this session, LexisNexis will speak to the business value derived by combining Blueprint's visual approach to requirements with an agile development methodology. This presentation outlines how agile has evolved the role of the business analyst to become a critical project stakeholder to ensure alignment between business and IT.

LexisNexis will articulate how their internal agile process accelerates development while at the same time increasing the quality of the products they deliver. In the presentation, LexisNexis highlights how rich requirements models, visual simulation, and automatic document & test generation supported by Blueprint software have become an integral part of LexisNexis' agile approach to software development.

Attendees will learn:

--  A practical, proven approach to define requirements for agile projects
--  How rich expression of requirements helps avert miscommunication
--  How requirements visualization can improve alignment in agile projects
"Agile development processes are rapidly becoming mainstream," said Morgan. "Early adopters like LexisNexis 'blaze the trails' by learning the lessons and developing the best practices that will guide the masses who follow, and in return gain competitive advantage in their development shops. We are pleased to be sharing the stage with LexisNexis as they provide incredibly valuable insights on how to leverage requirements software to further improve the results of agile development."
