Why is Agile so important and who's doing it well? Traditional development methodologies like "waterfall" aren't flexible and don't allow for changes in features or functions as the software is being developed. Using the Agile approach, developers at can produce enterprise software in half the time, with more flexibility to market needs. But, that's not all that happens with Agile. Development teams become more productive, costs go down, and quality goes up. Everyone wins with the Agile approach.
