HP wants to help developers make apps faster

By Brandon Butler, Network World |  Software, agile development, Application development

Tom Grant, a senior application development analyst for Forrester, says agile software development models are a transformative and mainstream model for building new software. "[It] represents not just a different methodology than [the more traditional waterfall approach], but a whole different approach to innovation," he says.

HP already has a strong reputation among developers with its Application Lifecycle Management tools, but it will face stiff competition in the agile market. IBM and Microsoft each have their own bolt-on offerings to enable agile software development. Startups that are focused solely on agile software development include Rally and VersionOne.
