Agile Development

Businesses can't stand still, innovation is standard as you try to get an edge on your competitors or close the gap where they have stolen a march on you. As a consequence business can't hang around for months and years to innovate through the use of technology.

As a consequence of this need to move quickly and adapt to new requirements or challenges Agile Development is becoming the preferred approach for software development. Unlike other methodologies such as Waterfall that are more linear, Agile Development is an iterative process that puts the needs of the business at the center and cultivates a more collaborative process between the development team and business stakeholders.

The Agile Development process breaks down features, defects, enhancements, estimates their effort and then assigns them to a release (each release can be viewed as a mini project.) The release has a deadline, these deadlines can vary but these are typically every two weeks. By breaking down large initiatives into smaller releases priorities can be easily managed and changed. Importantly as there will be a new release of the software that will go into production frequently, the business is able to see constant value as applications are being continually improved to support the business at the point of need.

At Deccan Enterprise we have significant experience in Agile Development in numerous industries, partnering with companies as a provider of Extended Software Development Teams since 2006. In this time we have worked in SCRUM, Kanban and Lean organisations although it is important to note that these methodologies are not prescriptive and organisations adapt, borrow and mix these methodologies to suit their personal needs. Consequently our exposure to these approaches and the combinations allows us to adopt to your particular methodology quickly and productively.
