Alexander Kjerulf, Enterprise Systems
Presentation: Practical experiences with use cases in the early stages of a project

Or: Hey, this stuff actually works! We at Enterprise Systems have begun using use cases quite recently, and this session goes through our experiences with use cases in the early stages of a project. From immediately after the sale, through initial workshops, the analysis phase, contract negotiations, project restructuring, and all those other little project related surprises we know and love.
Use cases turned out to be easier to write, read and maintain through the whole initial project phase than a "traditional" project specification, and we'll show you exactly how and why it worked for us.
Also we'll touch on our future plans for use cases in this area, including som improvements we've thought of after this project.

Monday 16:15 - 17:00

Alexander Kjerulf is one of the founders of Enterprise Systems, and has worked as a consultant in various Object Oriented technologies since 1994. Enterprise Systems still provides him with most of the challenges he needs (and then some), but he also finds time to teach aerobics at various gyms in Copenhagen, partly to stay in shape, but mostly because it's a guy's only chance to see 25 women doing exactly as they're told.

Enterprise Systems was founded in 1997 by three consultants, and somehow still remains true to its original ideals, which are:
  • 1: Software development with an attitude
  • 2: Happy customers
  • 3: Solutions that last
  • 4: The very best consultants
  • 5: Owned 100% by the consultants
