Analysis the Strength of Agile Methodologies in Software Development

Authors(3) :-K M. Jyoti, Tinku Singh, Parul Saharavat

There are several software development methodologies in use today. Some companies have their own customized methodology for developing their software but the majority speaks about two kinds of methodologies: heavyweight and lightweight. The strengths and weakness between the two opposing methodologies are discussed and the challenges associated with implementing agile processes in the software industry are provided. According to our findings agile methodologies can provide good benefits for small scaled and medium scaled projects but for large scaled projects traditional methods seem dominant. The study also focuses the different success factors of agile methods, the success rate of agile projects and comparison between traditional and agile software development.
