For the first time in the seven year history of the Index, Waterfall shares its top spot in total project utilisation with Agile. Whilst project scale and budgets may vary, each of these methodologies account for a third of all software development projects.

80 percent of respondent organisations are now applying Agile methods in some of their software projects. By comparison, Waterfall and V-Model are applied in 68 and 42 percent of organisations respectively.

The growth of Agile is partially due to positive market sentiment, with 88 percent of respondents considering Agile to be at least as effective overall as competing methodologies. Moreover, Agile registered an even greater response in key areas including:

  • Improved team collaboration – 75 percent;
  • At least as quickly to market – 86 percent;
  • Addressing requirements as well if not better – 80 percent.
