Internet of Things, Smart Spaces, and Next Generation Networks and Systems. 20th International Conference, NEW2AN 2020, and 13th Conference, ruSMART 2020, St. Petersburg, Russia, August 26–28, 2020, Proceedings, Part II
This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Next Generation Teletraffic and Wired/Wireless Advanced Networks and Systems, NEW2AN 2020, and the 13th Conference on Internet of Things and Smart Spaces, ruSMART 2020. The conference was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 79 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 225 submissions. The papers of NEW2AN address various aspects of next-generation data networks, with special attention to advanced wireless networking and applications. In particular, they deal with novel and innovative approaches to performance and efficiency analysis of 5G and beyond systems, employed game-theoretical formulations, advanced queuing theory, and stochastic geometry, while also covering the Internet of Things, cyber security, optics, signal processing, as well as business aspects. ruSMART 2020, provides a forum for academic and industrial researchers to discuss new ideas and trends in the emerging areas.
We developed the mechanism and tools of risk controlling in agile projects for companies in information and communication (ICT) industry. The relevance of this topic is underpinned by (1) the growing number of failures of agile projects due to realization of unique set of risks; and (2) the fact that standard agile practices neglect important risk management steps. The paper fills the research gaps in this area and addresses inefficiencies in explicit agile risk management frameworks. The results include the development of the mechanism’s concept and the block diagram for scrum framework. They also include risk controlling tools: risk-based release planning, system of key risk indicators and agile risk controlling effectiveness evaluation tree. Unlike peers mentioned in existing studies the mechanism provides holistic approach to the agile risk management while keeps the spirit of agile. It addresses risk governance issues, ensures integration and coordination of risk management activities both inside the team and across the company and provides for lightweight but efficient tools. The mechanism can be adapted for other agile frameworks and can be applied by scrum masters and project managers in ICT industry as well as by the researches who are interested in further enhancement in agile risk management practices.
