Agility in Software Development

Updated: May 3, 2023


Agility everywhere! Agility in all activities today. The way we respond to an uncertain situation has changed. Today we have more options available, and being agile is the way forward. Being agile is the ability to respond quickly and successfully manage a changed situation.

Agility is the new approach we have adopted in our software product development. As we remember, in the traditional software development approach, the scope is generally well defined at the beginning and to only know the gap between the initial understanding of the scope and the final product is at the time of acceptance. There was no other way to understand this gap well in advance. Also, there was no room for changes during the development phase. This leads to many conflicts at the end of the development cycle.

During early 2000, the agile manifesto formulated the guiding principles to software development and addressed all the challenges of the traditional software development approach.

Manifesto for Agile Software Development


We are uncovering better ways of developing

software by doing it and helping others do it.

Through this work, we have come to value:


Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

Working software over comprehensive documentation

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Responding to change over following a plan.


While there is value in the items on

the right, we value the items on the left more.

The essence of the agile approach added a great value for the organization to establish the customer needs gradually. At the same time, the customer gets better visibility about the products features and its progress.

Being agile is not an easy task for everyone as it involves a cultural change. An overall change from the traditional approach towards software development. As we give more value to items on the left of the manifesto, we have to transform gradually.

  1. Change in the overall work culture

  2. Evolution of a project manager to be more of a guide, facilitator, mentor, coach, change expert, and/or trainer.

  3. More Communication within the team and with the stakeholders

  4. Empowerment of Development by self-organizing

  5. More empowered development team

We will see agile in working rather than agile way working.

At Intertech Software Development-ISD, the product designs are enabled with highly dynamic micro-service architecture to bridge the gap between traditional application design architecture and container-based micro-service architecture. We adopt the best practices of Agile in our software development methodologies.

RAMSYS is one of the flagship software products of ISD and has been built with the most modern Microservice Architecture, which enables RAMsys to provide a consistent user experience across a range of platforms, spanning the web, mobile & IoT etc.

ISD also has a secure development environment certified by TUV-NORD after complying with international standards for information security – ISO 27001:2013.
