About Saudi Central Bank - SAMA
The Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority is both the central bank of Saudi Arabia and a Saudi sovereign wealth fund. The SAMA is a particularly opaque sovereign wealth fund, established in 1952 to manage trade surpluses linked to the export of hydrocarbons.
All TMO test cases and defects are being migrated from ALM QC to XRay (Jira app) because it allows them to merge and better reuse test cases, manage test data sets, have defects directly assigned to the development team, and other new features.
Migrating all source codes from TFS to Bitbucket DC in order to initiate and control SAST scans and their results in response to certain actions within SSDLC, as well as to enforce source code reviews.
The Saudi Central Bank Business Technology Deputyship is all working together to support all of their different functions, and management has 360-degree views with multiple dashboards built on EazyBI and PowerBI.
We migrated enhancements running on SAP Solution Manager and migrated ongoing projects from a Share point-based EPM tool to be unified as Demands.
On Jira, a demand lifecycle was built that empowers the Demand Management team, from creation to qualification and delivery approval.
During the delivery phase, these demands evolve into either projects governed and planned with Big Picture (Jira app) or enhancements that follow a Waterfall or Agile methodology.
Agile enhancements are broken down into user stories and scheduled for future pre-planned releases using Jira’s user interface and roadmaps. Waterfall enhancements are managed by an automated enhanced SSDLC, ensuring quick and secure solution delivery.
These enhancements and project tasks feed the BigPicture resource planning module, which manages capacity and capability schedules
The project was a success it became an opportunity for SAMA COE to digitalize their ideation and initiative process using the same instance of Jira and Confluence
