The "essence" model spans a unified umbrella over all software development processes - from classic waterfall to agile. Applying a few simple principles creates transparency and order.
We live in the age of digital disruption. Technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud or blockchain have grown out their infancy. Interestingly, there has been hardly any discussion of the engine that is driving the digital changes in the first place. We are talking about software – code that is written in a computer-comprehensible language and can be seen as the driver of digital transformation.

Many companies struggle to create a reliable and understandable framework for software development beyond a team level. But the higher the speed of digitization, the clearer the course must be set. With the increasing replacement of waterfall-like procedures for software development by agile methods, the need for transparency and control capabilities is growing. The Essence model presented here addresses these deficits and, in conjunction with innovative tools, provides a reliable framework for bringing even large and expensive development projects safely to the finish line in the context of digital transformation and beyond. "Essence" is a standard of the Object Management Group.
