Case Study COMIT AG
In the first part of the Geek Night, Oliver Knoll will share his experience about using Scrum with other participants. Since two years Oliver works in the Finace team as a software engineer with COMIT AG, a Swisscom company. He is a ScrumMaster since one year in the product development. The product Finace is used in the finance industry as a Security Lending trading platform and is developed with the Scrum process. Scrum was also successfully applied in a large project for JP Morgan Chase. The challenges they successfully mastered were convincing JPMC of their process and bringing the Scrum process knowledge to their teams in Hyderabad. Current challenges are handling customer issues with quick response time.
