APG RUP Implementation Program
APG offers a range of services for implementing the IBM Unified Process® (RUP®) in an organization. Our proven approach to successful process improvement involves a suite of integrated services that we tailor to the specific needs of each of our clients.
APG recommends implementing RUP using a risk-driven, iterative approach. After an initial organizational assessment, APG works with our clients to help determine measurable business objectives for the process improvement effort. For each release of new process to the organization, APG helps our clients:
Identify high-level requirements and scope
Develop iterative plans for the current release
Train core method team members
Select candidate pilot projects
Acquire appropriate tools and licenses
Tailor and extend RUP to organizational needs
Coach and mentor pilot project teams
Deploy and support RUP adoption by the entire organization
Types of Projects
APG expects that for most organizations, a single process is often not sufficient for every type of project. APG is experienced in implementing new development processes for many different types of projects.
Custom, object-oriented, web applications
Application support and maintenance
Real-time and embedded development
While we expect that a single process often does not work exactly the same for different types of projects, APG recommends searching for as much commonality as possible.
APG has a comprehensive classroom training curriculum of over 30 courses that cover all aspects of the software development lifecycle.
