New perspectives with agile software development

New products and services are needed to respond to changing requirements on the part of markets and customers. This not only demands flexible software solutions, but also new business models.

New digital ideas can be implemented quickly and coherently thanks to agile software development, with the methods used also supporting innovations directly. This is because the learning-driven error culture and transparent handling of findings encourages an eagerness to experiment in the company.

Zero-bug policy – An amusing project empirical report

The entertaining empirical report looks at a project that threatens to fail under the pressure of too many bugs.
