10 Most Promising Agile Solution Providers - 2018
The prototype of a product or the beta build of an application hardly lives up to the expectation of a customer, and that is completely acceptable. Such a trend of manufacturing or development signifies the implementation of an agile workflow, where multiple iterations of a product are tested by end-user to report bug or errors. As a result, the agile methodology is widely preferred by industry leaders for its potential of reducing the development cost while ensuring efficient project delivery. Utilizing the Agile methodology provides long-term growth in a competitive market as the end product gets delivered to the market faster owing to its iterative nature. In a survey of 50,000 agile teams, by CA Technologies, it was found that Agile can help high-performing teams double their productivity and cut time to market by 50 percent.
Agile methodology is not only a preferred approach to application development but also proves to improve the way digital products and services are delivered to achieve digital transformation. Agile adoption has even gone beyond software development by transcending into other departments such as sales, marketing, and operations. End-to-end agility of business operations will bridge the gap between IT and various departments to attain organizational objectives collaboratively; filling such gaps assists the IT teams to engage with other areas of the business proactively. Thus, an adequately agile organization enhances collaboration and cross-functional communication at all levels of a company to deliver a cherishable end product to its customers.
