ATLANTA – March 26, 2015 – VersionOne, a leader in agile lifecycle management solutions, has released the results of its ninth annual State of Agile™ survey. For nearly a decade, this annual survey has collected feedback from agile practitioners to help the agile software community make smarter decisions about its software delivery process.
This year’s State of Agile survey found that agile continues to gain momentum. In fact, 94 percent of the organizations surveyed are practicing agile. The survey also found plenty of evidence that agile works. For the fourth year in a row, the top three benefits of agile development remain: ability to manage changing priorities, team productivity, and project visibility. Furthermore, 53 percent of respondents said the majority, if not all, of their agile projects have been successful.
The survey shares insights on the most popular agile tools, tips on scaling agile, how to measure agile success, and much more. For instance, in a year-over-year comparison, the respondents’ future plans to use various agile project management tools doubled in every category. The project management solution with the highest satisfaction rating was VersionOne (92 percent).
“The results of the annual survey prove that more companies, and bigger companies, are scaling and embracing agile as part of a larger vision to deliver great software,” VersionOne CEO Robert Holler says. “We now have nine years of data from thousands of agile practitioners around the world. Leveraging the collective insights of such an open and collaborative community has been priceless. Every year we learn more and more about the positive momentum and associated successes of agile and lean practices in the software development community.”
