Agile Architecture, Analysis and Modeling

Today, companies that develop software products are invited to be more reactive and effective. Agile approaches seem well suited to this new context by offering solutions with high-added value for users.

For example, the Scrum method explains how it is possible to plan development considering business value in collaboration with experts in the field. However, the Scrum method, which is not very normative, needs to explain how software development disciplines must be adapted to an incremental and iterative approach, contenting itself with talking about emerging architecture, analysis and modelling.

Agile methods may seem light and improvised for organizations that have implemented rigorous processes. In particular, they need to consider the importance of analysis work upstream to manage the technical risks associated with software development projects.
