GCN reports on a preliminary survey released by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers and consulting firm Accenture, which shows the positive results state CIOs are seeing from agile methods.
The survey included one to five IT officials in each state, 31 percent of whom had been using agile methods for more than three years.
From the article:
Ninety-eight percent of survey respondents agreed the frequent updating is providing value to the customers, and 87 percent said they think there is more success in starting with agile in discrete projects. Once customers get a feel for what the agile approach brings to the technology space, there are more opportunities to bring it into more complicated systems.
