Highly Skilled and Knowledgeable Tutors
Improve Quality: By breaking down a project into manageable units, the project team may focus on producing and testing high-quality code.
Go to Market More Quickly & Improve ROI: By utilising Agile Development practices, businesses may free themselves up from being forced to rely on features and deliverables that were proposed months (or even years) ago, and adjust and deploy more quickly based on today’s needs. Additionally, Agile can quickly produce a working version of software, and early deployment of functional parts means that businesses will begin to see real ROI more quickly.
Mitigate Risk, and Quickly: Frequent testing and shorter feedback loops mean that problems may be discovered and addressed more quickly. And functioning code may continue to operate while issues are being resolved in later additions.
More Easily Manage the Project Scope: Agile Development Practices emphasise a list of requirements, with very short development cycles, that evolves as the project progresses. This flexible process results in predictable release dates and manageable budgets, and helps prevent development projects from mushrooming out of control.
Promote Transparency and Improve Decision-Making: Using Agile Development practices, stakeholders have frequent and early opportunities to see and have a say in what is being developed
In Agile methodology the delivery of software is unremitting.
The customers are satisfied because after every Sprint working feature of the software is delivered to them.
Customers can have a look of the working feature which fulfilled their expectations.
If the customers has any feedback or any change in the feature then it can be accommodated in the current release of the product.
In Agile methodology the daily interactions are required between the business people and the developers.
Changes in the requirements are accepted even in the later stages of the development.
