Agile Software Development
Agile software development is a group of software development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams.
There are multiple concrete Agile methods. In common, they promote development, teamwork, collaboration, and process adaptability. The two most widely used methods are Scrum and Kanban.
codeBeamer support Agile methods throughout the full lifecycle of the project, from defining requirements, through development, to operations.
codeBeamer supports agility on three levels:
- Team level: set up a Kanban Board for each Agile team to give visibility to the current status of the iteration. codeBeamer is an efficient tool for team communication and collaboration.
- Project level: use the Agile Planning Board for Agile requirements management (elaborating User Stories) and for setting up Sprints. Additional elements of Scrum can also be applied (for example, story points for evaluating tasks’ complexity).
- Program level: codeBeamer supports SAFe® – Scaled Agile Framework.
