PRLog - Aug. 9, 2012 - Agile is a framework for the process of software development that adopts the open collaboration, iterative approach and process adaptability throughout the life spanof a project. This iterative approach is more flexible and the improvements required in short time-span with very little planning.The use of Agile Tools minimizes the overall risk and the project can adapt to changes more quickly. A lot of emphasis is laid on the involvement of the stakeholder, and they are consulted about the product and comments after everyiteration.
This approach by Agile Tools is in direct response to the issue that was earlier associated with traditional waterfall method. The tools are in its simplest form and provide a lightweight framework for helping the team members. This in turn provides a constant evolution on the technical and functional landscape and maintains focus on the rapid delivery of business value.
The point described below shows the advantages agile has over waterfall development processes.
1.When a stage is completed in the Waterfall method you can never go back. This makes most of the software designed and implemented under the waterfall method non-dynamic and change is almost impossible. If the system is problematic, you need to redesign the whole thing to fix it.This in turn is reflected in the involved cost and time.On the other hand Agile toolsprovide flexibility and allows the project to cope and adapt to new ideas which allows seamless changes. No program needsrewriting and becomes extremely useful when programs are being upgraded.
2.Another advantage of the tool is that it is a ready to launch product after the successful completion of every stage. This also includes an easy and thorough debugging process; the tools catch the bugs and eliminate themduring the development cycle. This means that the process is tested again after the first bug elimination.
3.Agile Tools produces a more efficientobject-
4.It also allows specific changes as per the requirement put forth by the end-users.
5.The waterfall method stands for predictability while agile methodology is all about adaptability. The Agile method reduces the overhead and keeps them as low as possible.
