Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • Waterfall methodologies can take a long time to achieve value
  • We are experiencing PLM solution obsolescence
  • We lack the ability to adapt to changing requirements
  • It is hard to achieve a high level of stakeholder engagement
  • Enterprise software environment has constraints that commercial software developers do not have

Agile software development practices were introduced in the late 1980s and early 1990s and became mainstream with the publication of the Agile Manifesto in 2001. The methodology is widely used in commercial software development and is now being applied in new areas such as hardware development and enterprise software deployment. CIMdata has observed clients using an Agile methodology for PLM deployment achieve benefits in line with those observed by commercial software developers. Benefits include faster time-to-value, a higher quality solution, and improved user satisfaction.
