English abstract:
The application of software process models in industry includes tradi‐
tional processes, agile processes, and process variants that aim at balancing tradi‐
tional and agile with focus on specific industry needs. To investigate the charac‐
teristics of such hybrid software and system development approaches that
combine agile and traditional approaches the HELENA project was initiated.
HELENA is based on a large international survey. Based on the first HELENA
survey, conducted in 2016, in 2017 a second round of surveys has been launched.
This paper focuses on initial results and discussions of the data from Austria where
22 persons participated. Results showed a good balance of small and medium
enterprises and large organizations. Iterative development processes and Scrum
are widely spread in these organizations where traditional approaches are often
combined with some agile practices.
