Abstract

Cisco Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSCO) is the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet. Inside Cisco’s Development Organization, the Network Management Technology Group (NTMG) is the group responsible for developing and delivering Network Management software for Cisco devices. The Converged Management Platform (CMP) Development Group within NMTG is building the Next Generation Network Management software called Active Network Abstraction (ANA), a platform which is aimed at converging numerous network management applications into a single platform, leveraging the capabilities of scale and distribution, and allowing the benefits of advanced technologies and a uniform interface. In this report we tell the story of a transition to agile software development in the Active Network Abstraction (ANA) project, including lessons learned.
