Agile vs Waterfall: Which is Better for IoT?

Download this white paper from Very to get an honest comparison of Agile vs. Waterfall for IoT development.

If you’re about to start an IoT development project, it’s important to decide which development methodology you should use. In this white paper, you can expect to see an honest comparison of IoT develop methodologies – in specific, agile vs waterfall.

As mass adoption of Internet-connected products continues to grow, so are consumers’ expectations. Users expect frequent product releases, and feature upgrades, putting a great deal of pressure on IoT leaders to continually innovate on the design of the physical product itself, the embedded software, and the infrastructure supporting it. The Internet of Things (IoT) sits at the intersection of the digital and the physical, dramatically extending the reach of technology. In fact, McKinsey reports that IoT could generate up to $11.1 trillion per year in economic value by 2025. With all of the hype along with the fact that opportunities for IoT extend to most industries, it’s natural to expect to see mass deployments all over the place. But in reality, the adoption of IoT is off to a slow start. The reason? It’s really hard. In fact, Gartner predicts that 75% of IoT projects will take twice as long as planned. The road to the future of IoT is littered with the wrecks of projects that sputtered out along the way. Thankfully, there are lessons we can learn from these failures.
