Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization. Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo´s Management 3.0 model recognizes that today´s organizations are living, networked systems; that you can´t simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships. Management 3.0 doesn´t offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond ´´Management 1.0´´ command hierarchies, and ´´Management 2.0´´ fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won´t or can´t resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo´s Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.

Using Agile methods, you can bring far greater innovation, value, and quality to any data warehouse, business intelligence, or analytics project. However, conventional Agile methodologies must be carefully adapted to address the unique characteristics of DW/BI projects. In Agile Analytics , Agile pioneer Ken Collier shows how to do just that. Collier introduces platform-agnostic Agile solutions for integrating infrastructures consisting of diverse operational, legacy, and specialty systems that mix commercial and custom code. Using working examples, he shows how to manage analytics development teams with widely diverse skill sets; support enormous and fast-growing data volumes; and more. CollierÕs techniques offer equal value whether your projects involve Òback-endÓ data management, Ò front-endÓ business analysis, or both. Part I focuses on Agile project management techniques and delivery team coordination, introducing core practices that shape the way your agile DW/BI project community works together towards success Part II presents technical methods for enabling continuous delivery of business value at production-quality levels, including evolving superior designs; test-driven DW development; version control; and project automation Collier brings together proven solutions you can apply right nowÑwhether youÕre an IT decision-maker, data warehouse professional, DBA, business intelligence specialist, or database developer. With his help, you can mitigate project risk, improve business alignment, achieve better resultsÑand have fun along the way.

Comprehensive Guide to Dynamic Time Warping in ...

Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) is a well-known technique used to determine alignment between two temporal sequences. DTW has been used in wide range of applications and it can be applied on any data which can be represented as linear sequence. Existing DTW libraries have out dated implementation of core DTW algorithm, which result in low performance or are inapplicable for big sequences. The aim of this book is to present, detailed concept of DTW along with a comprehensive DTW library, encapsulating the implementation of DTW variants with recently proposed efficient algorithms. Further down the road, in this book I presented a python module for computing and visualizing DTW alignment: DTWPy. DTWPy has implementation of classical DTW and recently proposed performance efficient algorithms i.e. fastDTW and DDTW. Correctness of the algorithms is verified by comparing it with existing R implementation. This book gives the basic idea to the readers about what DTW is and DTWPy have the most comprehensive implementation of DTW algorithms present in literature to date, and is applicable on large temporal sequence.

Applied Algorithms for Bioinformatics Problems

With significant growth of bio-molecular sequence data in the last decade the need for algorithms to extract patterns and meaningful information from such data has been felt strongly. Alignment of sequences, in order to determine regions of common descent, has also been an important area of research as it helps scientist discover the evolution of species. Another problem that researchers are putting in a lot of effort into, is document summary. As the lower bound for computation is being met for various algorithms, to further expedite the computing on large data sets, parallelization has become imperative. New multiprocessor architectures like the Cell Broadband Engine have the potential to do extensive calculations and act as mini-supercomputers. Other applications for these include onboard aircraft fault diagnosis and prognosis. We take a peek into some existing algorithms for these problems as well as propose novel algorithms along with their implementations to address these problems in the field of bioinformatics.
