Why is Agile so Popular? 
Modified By Chris Adams  on 7/12/2023 9:48:22 AM)

Before Agile, the Waterfall methodology was the gold standard for Software Development. Developing any software product required a ton of documentation before coding even began. Business analysts prepared the requirements documentation, technical department then prepared their technical requirement documentation from it. Then coding and testing come to the floor.

Agile methodology overcomes the risk of spending a lot of time if there are any changes required. It allows teams to work directly with clients, instead of working with other teams. This provides a clear outcome with a focused goal and in an incremental way. 

From a variety of viewpoints, organizations considered Agile to be more beneficial than the waterfall process. Agile is prevalent in the manufacturing, FMCG, and car industries, in addition to the IT business.

XDuce (https://xduce.com/custom-software-development) adapted Agile methodology many years ago. We worked for the betterment of our clients. A V-shaped model is a good option for companies, combining quick turnaround times in Agile with detailed planning and documentation of Waterfall.

I agree that Agile can be more flexible and responsive to changing customer needs and feedback. It also fosters collaboration and communication among team members and stakeholders.
I’m curious to know more about the V-shaped model that you mentioned. How does it combine the best of both Agile and Waterfall? What are the benefits and challenges of using this model?

Agile is a more flexible and responsive approach to software development than Waterfall. It allows teams to work directly with clients and adapt to changes as needed.
