An Agile Model-Driven Approach - A case study

This case study describes the introduction of a Model Driven Development (MDD) approach in a large global financial services software company with a conservative culture and high time-to-market constraints. By the application of agile and lean principles on model-driven development, we produced an agile MDD approach for constructing a new architecture. The main point is to show how lean and agile principles helped us with producing a solution, with a short implementation phase. In that way we coped successfully with the management constraints, achieving the implementation within the given time-frame. Our Agile MDD approach is based on the general Model-Driven Architecture idea but is shaped with the lean and agile principles. It resulted in a simple, but not simplistic, architecture with a single modeling level. The model is designed by reverse engineering of the legacy code in a Test Driven Development (TDD) fashion. The TDD logic improved the development efficiency and decreased the total time spent on the development and testing. We got a simple and applicable solution with a new methodology that is successfully applied on two industry projects by now.
