Could Agile IoT Development Gain Favor?

February 06, 2020 / PETE BARTOLIK

Agile methodologies are increasingly disrupting traditional software development in the enterprise IT and cloud environments. These methodologies can speed up testing and updating of Internet of Things (IoT) systems. But they also challenge the traditionally linear process of creating hardware devices for field deployment in large numbers. Historically, software development followed a “waterfall” methodology involving multiple steps, each of which depends on the previous, so that errors or changes can prompt a reversion to a previous step or a restart. This approach often creates project delays, adds costs and leads to development backlogs.
