The definition of an agile platform

Updated: August 05, 2020 | Ilse Lauwens, Marketing Director

An agile platform is a series of software technology tools that embody agile principles consisting of an online retail or an e-commerce website. Agile principles are derived from the agile manifesto, which outlines 4 important values in software development:

"We value:

  1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation and
  4. Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more."

Why are agile software development tools valuable

Agile software development tools facilitate and enhance developer's ability to plan, track and manage the development of the agile cycle. Agile project management software empowers an organization's product development process by enabling effective planning, providing real-time visibility, incorporating early customer feedback and facilitating easy collaboration among development teams. Today's marketplace offers several powerful open source agile project management tools.
