Agile software development is characterized by adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery and continual improvement; it provides rapid and flexible responses to change. It has been widely adopted in industrial software production.
S IT Solutions needed to accelerate the time-to-market for innovative software: deploying more frequently, but also doing this at a lower cost. When done successfully, agile software development can offer the key to finding this golden balance. However, introducing agile software development relies on a full awareness of current processes, which allows the team to see where they are missing targets for speed, cost, reliability and flexibility in the coding activity and deployed software.
Seerene’s software analytics platform supports agile processes with AI-based, data-driven insights that promote informed discussion.
A main challenges of agile software development for an organization is to bridge the knowledge gap between engineers and non-engineers, such as those in sales, business and management. Companies often do not find effective ways to communicate about software development between all involved.
When brought into an agile team, the Seerene platform provides a common communication platform along the software production pipeline and across various stakeholder groups. The results and recommendations of the platform reduce the overhead of creating manual reports or reviewing software development groups by consultants. The platform encourages discussions and transparency among software developers so that they can localize and reflect on their own activities better.
