What Exactly Is “Agile Development?”
Kipu has been built in what’s known as an “agile environment.” Agile development (with agile project management) is a method of software development that focuses on quick rollouts from an efficient and flexible team. These rollouts, known as “sprints,” include new features and enhancements based on a continuous flow of feedback from our clients to constantly release a steady flow of quality improvements. In an agile environment, changes in the marketplace are embraced–and modifications made–at any stage of the process to provide our Kipu clients with a competitive advantage. In short, it allows teams to cut through unnecessary work and focus only on essential work.
One thing that separates Agile from other approaches to software development is the focus on the people doing the work–along with the people who will actually use the software–and how they work together. Solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams comprised of Kipu engineers working alongside our clients.
