How MAD are we? Empirical Evidence for Model-driven Agile Development.
Paper in proceedings, 2014
Since the launch of the Agile Manifesto there has been numerous propositions in how to combine agile practices with Model-driven Development. Ideally the combination would give the benefits of agile (e.g. rapid response to changes and shorter lead times) with the promises of Model-driven development (such as high-level designs and automation). A commonality among the proposals is that they lack in empirical evaluation. Our contribution is a systematic literature review to find out to what experiences there are of Model-driven Agile Development, MAD, from an empirical context. Among our conslusions is that MAD is sitll an immature research area and that more experience reports from industry are needed before we can claim to have understood the possibilities and drawbacks of MAD.
