CIO survey finds Agile evolving slowly but surely within agencies

Federal News Radio reports that the 25th annual chief information officer’s survey shows the acceptance and use of Agile development as the biggest change from previous years.

According to the survey, 91 percent of respondents are using Agile, and 33 percent are using it as the default methodology. George DelPrete, the lead of the annual CIO survey, told Federal News Radio that the adoption of Agile is evolving slowly but surely:

A lot of agencies right now are doing pilots and just experimenting with agile. A lot of the agile is done over very small applications. We are not seeing a lot of agile used across the enterprise. There are very few agencies who are really using agile for everything and are mature at it.”
