Scaled Agile Framework SAFe
SAFe, developed by Scaled Agile, Inc. ("SAI"), is a framework for scaling Agile. It is a broad body of knowledge that includes guidance on roles, responsibilities, deliverables and activities required to implement agile practices at an enterprise scale. Scalable and configurable, SAFe provides support for small-scale solutions employing 50 to 125 project workers to complex systems requiring thousands of people.
- Improve time-to-market, productivity, and quality by combining Lean, Agile, and DevOps principles, practices, and competencies.
- Customer-centric approach puts the customer at the center of all decision-making and ensures that solutions are desirable, viable, and sustainable.
What is the "technology" used in SAFe?
SAFe is an agile development framework for enterprises.
The "platform" and the people, teams, and concepts that design, build, and support it provide the technical support for the agile development team (Scrum team).
SAFe defines these in strong association with organizations and processes.
NTT DATA became a "Bronze Partner" of SAI in September 2016, a "Gold Partner" in June 2018, and became the third company in the world and the first Japanese company to be certified as a "Global Transformation Partner" in September 2020 in recognition of its global support system for SAFe.
The NTT DATA Group operates the Global SAFe Community, a group of SPCs belonging to group companies in 14 countries around the world, including Japan. Knowledge in each country is accumulated and utilized mainly through the SPCs to facilitate smooth implementation of SAFe for customers.
