Adapt to Changing Business Requirements in a Quicker, Easier and more Cost Effective Way. Increase Your Business Agility.
Business Agility, is how fast a business can respond to different types of changes. These changes probably have different sources and reasons. But businesses in order to keep pace with changes, require to take advantage of technologies, tools and methodologies.
In a business context, agility is the ability of an organization to rapidly adapt to market and environmental changes in productive and cost-effective ways. On the other hand software development practices are adapting agile and lean methodologies to manage changes in a more adaptive fashion, and receive feedback earlier in the development cycle.
Historically, product development in IT adapted many different methodologies to develop and deliver software. One of the main goals in this evolving process was to find a way to deliver software faster in order to receive feedback earlier in the process. Software development in IT started from traditional waterfall methodologies and moved to iterative and incremental methodologies and then agile and lean processes. Throughout all this, one of the main challenges for IT development teams was to deal with change and manage its impact… yet the software development industry is still unable to satisfy businesses in this respect.
In this paper, we discuss current challenges and approaches that they aim to address these issues. We then describe the obstacles in the current process and propose another approach to eliminate some of those obstacles effectively.
