Even the most experienced Agile IT teams have a hard time keeping up with the rising demand for new business applications. When it comes to supporting these teams, Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of the widely adopted Scrum development methodology, says "it's all about adaptability." The problem is simple: Yesterday's enterprise technology is too rigid to support today's demands for new and improved business applications. Increasingly, organizations are faced with one common issue—a need to do more with less, innovate faster and improve the agility of their operations. Agility is a concept that incorporates the ideas of flexibility, balance, adaptability and coordination. In a business context, agility typically refers to the ability of an organization to rapidly adapt to market and environmental changes in productive and cost-effective ways. This eWEEK slide show, created with input from Mendix, an app platform provider, illustrates how the world's elite organizations maintain market leadership in highly competitive industries by embracing adaptability as a key growth enabler.
