Agile Software Development

The modern era software development market is transformative and demanding for a better software solution in increasingly shorter cycles, allow to add immediate scope or change scope in between for better product achievement.

 

The key goal for agile development is to apply shorter development cycles and allowing more frequent engagement between the development team and the business. A flexible scope to patriciate in a series of activities with shared mutual understanding to bring up right features as best suited for the business.

Feature Estimation and Plan

Feature estimation is the core aspect to deliver right business values. Features are the key for better planning that to provide business value, estimation to implement it, small to fit within iteration, a testable criterion to be accepted by the customer.

 

Feature Breakdown Structure

Over a traditional approach as work break down structure (WBS) used in waterfall development agile development favors a Feature Breakdown Structure (FBS). There are good reasons why feature breakdown structure is benefitted.

 
  • Allowing frequent communication between stakeholder and development team
  • Allowing stakeholder to prioritize work depend on business value
  • Allowing work process tracking to compare with actual business value
 

Feature Breakdown Structure

 
Methodology Feature Term Description
Scrum Backlog Items Include core features and hardware for productions
Dynamic System DM - DSDM Requirements System features and modules
Extreme Programming (XP) Story leads to define feature functionality
Agile Up Requirements Also, termed as use cases

Agile Development - Key advantages

Agile is more likely a philosophical approach towards software development then just a methodology. There are multiple principles over proscriptive and prescriptive methods, Scrum is well known to implement with agile fundamental approach, overall a team must have better insight making agile a best suitable development practice for its key advantages.

 
 

Addressing Project Risks Quickly

Quick phase deliveries and reduced batch complexity associated with agile development quickly eliminated to meet the rapidly changing demand of the market to enable project risks to be easily revealed.

Ease of Uncertainty

The value being uncertainty is the key advantage as in the beginning don’t know everything about a project in the very early stage.

Agile is a way to ease uncertainty for major technical solution, in such case where client thinks what is being achieved so far is not something much desired or lately discovering such issues with the solutions result in uncertainty.

Applying agile fundamentals and principals allows to ease uncertainty with greater adoption in client side value before delivering solution.

Client side Full Control

Operational transparency combined with the iteration-based delivery feature guarantee a fully functional system always during the Agile engagement. This helps client to have full control of the project.

Time and Cost

When best planned with a few more best practice Agile methodology proven to be more cost-effective quality development in less time. It depends on project size, scopes, key requirements to work on maximizing time and cost advantage, sometimes it become a transparent mutual process between the development team and project stockholders to adopt suitable best mix of practice specially maximizing a time and cost advantage.

Business Value Prioritization

Software functionality is prioritized to deliver Business value prioritization With Distributed Agile development, to enable faster realization of benefits and result the business value prioritize by the company.

Change Adoption

Agile is the practice to adopt change so frequently, more in advantage term to achieve better software product with change adoption approach. In generic term emphasis to adopt and responding to any challenging change during the development process that avoid big change in future. Agile allows change adoption while focusing back on client side key aspect then just following predefined plans.

The key advantage is that resolving many key issues quickly for better solution, reflecting sudden change in development in line with change requirement.

Improves Quality

Manageable iterative development help in improving quality. The project team producing frequent build, conducting testing, reviews during each iteration, get immediate findings and fixing defects eliminates mismatched expectation. Overall it is about quality improvement.

Fast Release and Reviews

Agile is the way of rapid development in small iteration development allow fast release and immediate client feedback, this become advantageous in terms of incorporating feedbacks before initiating new phase or iteration, the best to implement any given feedback during the raw development itself so fast release is another agile advantage.

 

Ideally, small and medium size software developments requirement with limited number of resources highly benefited from agile practices. Agile mean a flexible approach intensify to achieve rapid fast quality solution within limited time and cost, ultimately to achieve highest level of client satisfaction.
