In addition to the inherent costs of meeting the requirements set forth by these regulations and the cost of preparing for compliance audits, failure to comply could result in even more significant expenses. If that wasn’t enough, financial companies are facing ever tighter deadlines and budgets in their software projects in such a heavily regulated market environment.
As a consequence, cost-efficient ways of ensuring process & product quality, and achieving compliance are key success factors and could mean a competitive advantage for companies in a market operating at such a high velocity. Flexible Agile practices are increasingly used to cut costs and development time, but enforcing processes and ensuring quality are of vital importance even in an Agile environment.
