A presentation on the agile approach of a Magento 1 to Magento 2 website rebuild. When considering the migrations and upgrades from Magento 1 to Magento 2, it is important to focus on a minimum viable product (MVP) rather than a complete rebuild of the original site. An agile project structure supports this approach and creates a relationship based on trust between the agency and client, as the process is so collaborative. A waterfall contract, on the other hand, is about protection of the parties involved and places a large emphasis on a fixed scope. It’s important to bear in mind that requirements for projects always change, so a fixed scope rarely happens for larger projects. Once the scope changes, all sides of the iron triangle are affected. Using a fixed budget and a number of story points with a focus on delivering an MVP, allows the project to evolve and can accommodate changing requirements and needs without ongoing budget discussions.

The Pelizzatti family founded Chakana in May 2002 reviving an old family legacy. At the turn of the XIX century, the Pelizzatti ancestors made wine from the terraced vineyards of Valtellina, Italy.
Chakana is a winery dedicated to the study and understanding of some of the best terroirs of Mendoza, Argentina. Its goal is to produce authentic wines to express the character and identity of the Andean soils.
The winery is located in Agrelo in the province of Mendoza amongst 80 ha of vineyards. It also manages its own vineyards located in other areas of Mendoza, such as Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo), Altamira and Gualtallari (Uco Valley).
In 2012 Chakana started a conversion process to recover and maintain the harmony of its soils by transforming its agricultural methods to organic/biodynamic.
Chakana’s viticultural management is now oriented towards developing balanced vines through the structuring of its soils and the preservation of their organisms with methods compatible with their texture, organic matter and susceptibility to frost.
Chakana’s Nuna Estate located in Agrelo has been certified organic from vintage 2014 onwards and is certified Demeter (biodynamic) since 2016. The Los Cedros vineyard in Altamira is organic certified. All the other vineyards are in conversion to organic and biodynamic preparations are being used consistently.
Chakana is the only Argentinian winery GMO-free certified by the Non-GMO Project.
Site completed and launched in 2017.
