Agile Methodology for Quick and Successful Project Completion To ensure a successful project completion and cut down the possibility of a project failure, many software development teams are continually looking for ways to enhance both the process and technology of software development life cycle. With no software system being simple enough to complete a development that can be scripted from beginning to end in a linear fashion, there are plenty that are looking at a shift in the market towards the Agile ALM. Agile and ALM, once two distinct market segments, are now beginning to consolidate. As a result we now have what is called Agile ALM platforms. Although both the ALM and Agile communities concentrate on enhancing the current state of software development, the agile methodology uses the technology point of view to approach a challenge while agile looks at improving the process itself. The mutual goals and synergies of ALM and Agile are resulting in a number of Agile ALM vendors in the market. Scrum, the most popular implementation of the agile movement, has seen exponential growth in the past and teams using Scrum enjoy the advantage of accelerated product innovation, and minimal project rework. The best thing about Agile is that it preserves the interests of all stakeholders in a project, be it the client, project manager, development team or testing team. Agile promotes transparency and visibility, both of which are crucial aspects for the success of any project. To ensure successful project completion it is essential for your agile solution to maintain artifacts, entities and objects as well as projects, releases, sprints, product backlogs, daily scrum meetings, test cases, issues/changes. It is consequently important for an agile solution to be capable of dealing with several project releases, encapsulating all primary meeting phases, engage in optimized traceability relations and combine visual matters, process designs and handle implementations. Ideally effective application lifecycle management solutions should not require too much product support and maintenance, and be able to selectively import from various sources including previous projects. Managing backlogs and entities is an important step since these backlog items are assigned to different users independent of their locations, therefore agile solutions should allow for user access from anywhere anytime. It must also offer best solution that can allow users and project members to enter various Backlogs as Issues/ defects/ change and enhancement requests. It must also allow for routing of these items through suitable workflows based on the backlog types.
