Software is integral to the modern society. From individuals to large enterprises, all rely heavily on technology backed by sound software applications and services for all manner of tasks. Due to this growing demand and existing gaps in the market, application development remains a rapidly evolving industry.

In this installment, Koleno and Goodrich take an inside look at recent advances in Agile development and discuss the capabilities of XP and Scrum and how recent IT modernization trends have helped propel the popularity of these frameworks. The Agile philosophy offers distinct advantages over traditional linear methods such as Waterfall, including greater speed, higher quality and increased flexibility to adapt to changing requirements.

While creating solutions quickly and efficiently is important, development also needs to be value-focused, which requires a framework that supports and enables innovation. That’s where FleXP comes into play, offering the best of XP and Scrum joined together in a unified framework.
