May 25, 2018 - by Brijmohan Bhavsar
Software development methodologies in the market today are aplenty: some improve process efficiency, while some minimize risk, some offer immense scalability while some focus on continuous iterations. But how do you know which one is the best for you? Let’s look at three popular software development methodologies – waterfall, agile and scrum – in detail, and see which one would serve your business needs best.
Choosing What Fits
In the world of software development, choosing the right methodology is crucial to ensuring the success of your software. If the requirements of your project are clearly defined and the likelihood of changes are next to nil, the waterfall method with sequential steps will be ideal. However, if your project is large, with changes that happen frequently, agile method will enable you to bring your project to life in the most efficient manner. And if you have a cross-functional team in place that has the expertise to complete a dynamic project within a short time frame, go for the scrum method. Since each method has its own pros and cons, carefully analyzing them to see which one best fits your needs is vital.
