  26. 26. Typical Software Development Life Cycle_____________________________________________________
  27. 27. Agile Development_____________________________________________________ Agile methods attempt to minimize risk and maximize productivity by developing software in short iterations and by deemphasizing work on interim work artifacts.
  28. 28. Benefits Of Agile Development_____________________________________________________ Google uses it. Microsoft uses it. It’s considered the best methodology for web 2.0 tools like Twitter and Facebook. 1. Faster ROI The trick to achieving faster ROI is simple. Build a functional product across iterations, get it out to market early with limited features, continue adding features and then launch the fully functional version. • Development starts early • A functional ‘ready to market’ product after few iterations 2. Lower Risk Agile ranks very highly on risk mitigation scale. Since iterations are short, the market risk is reduced. A beta version released early in an agile project is a great way to tap the potential market for a product. Feedback from prospect customers can help evolve the product and lowers risk of the product failing to match client expectations. • Client gets early access to product during the life cycle • Greater flexibility for accommodating Change Requests • Early Cancellations hurt less
  29. 29. Benefits Of Agile Development_____________________________________________________ 3. Lower Defect Density Since the testing is frequent and starts early in the project, most bugs are caught during the test iterations. Agile’s “test driven development” approach ensures a high quality product with minimal bugs. • Showstopper/ Critical bugs are caught early in the project • Stories are considered incomplete till they have critical zero defects • Test Automation gets higher productivity for testing team 4. More Transparency & Better Visibility Agile manta promotes greater transparency amongst stakeholders in the interest of the project. Each stakeholder has a better visibility even when the product is shaping up. • Agile imparts better visibility and a greater sense of ownership to all stakeholders • Encourages Close coordination and build mutual trust amongst stakeholders • Brings all stakeholders on the ‘same page’ in terms of project progress and expectations.
