Ivar Jacobson International Brings Enterprise-Scale Agile Software Development to Australia

Satalyst Pty. Signs Up to Become Certified Business Partner Delivering Services to Support IJI’s Essential Practices and EssWork.

Ivar Jacobson International (IJI) today announced that Satalyst Pty. has become an IJI Business Partner in Australia. This is IJI’s first business partner in the region and marks the beginning of a relationship where Satalyst will be taking IJI’s innovative practice-based development approach to the Australian market.

IJI’s practice-based approach to software development enables consulting firms and end customers to easily create flexible, tailor-made development approaches to exactly fit the needs of their project. The approach uses lean and agile principles and enables the application of agile software development to strategic, enterprise-scale projects.

The approach is supported by IJI’s Essential Practices and EssWork, both of which will be licenced by Satalyst under the terms of the agreement.

“The Essential Practices are lean and light – they provide just enough guidance to support agile development approaches across large communities of practitioners. In this way they are a real enabler of enterprise-scale agile software development. I am very happy to have Satalyst on-board as our first business partner in Australia”, said Agneta Jacobson, VP Sales & Marketing for IJI.

Satalyst will go through IJI’s standard partner certification process, to ensure the quality of services delivered using the IJI approach. Once certified, Satalyst will be able to provide Essential Practice and EssWork based consulting, coaching and practitioner certification services to its customers.

“Satalyst’s adoption of the Essential Practices has allowed us to sustain exemplary delivery to our clients in Australia. Our partnership with IJI and our certification will enable us to transfer the benefits of an adaptable process to clients in a professional and authentic manner “, said Todd Elliott, CEO for Satalyst.
