Software development methodologies like Waterfall, Spiral, V-shaped, RAD and Agile (more widely adopted for faster incremental value delivery) to name a few, only address life cycle aspects. However, with rapid disruptive business models, it is vital for enterprises to address key challenges of agility, availability and integration using their IT landscape.
Scalability includes ability to handle scalable workload depending on a scalable user base. With legacy architectures, application performance gets compromised, also design does not allow cost effective incremental scalability in number of servers to adjust to the system performance.
Integration includes how well the applications connect with external and internal systems in the landscape. Customers demand same experience of using the app from various available platforms. To meet this requirement, enterprises must leverage increased collaboration with the development ecosystem for integration.
