Short-term IT projects are taking over long-term projects as businesses begin to adopt agile IT into their process.
Adaptability is one of the key components that defines successful IT these days. A “my way or the high way” or “well this has always worked for me” approach just won’t cut it in the IT world anymore. Technology processes are changing, they’re getting faster and that means IT projects are too.
That is why many IT departments are focusing less on larger and more complicated projects to focus on shorter and more sustainable solutions instead. This process is known as agile IT and it’s making an impact.
In fact, according to reports conducted by Tech Pro Research, “81% of respondents felt agile IT would yield a quicker deployment of solutions.” By focusing on short-term projects rather than long-term, businesses feel that they can leverage their IT staff in a more effective way. However, according to the studies as well for those that actually implemented agile IT, there were also a few notable drawbacks.
While short-term projects may yield quicker deployment, they can also increase costs and provide a less effective solution for problem detection and prevention. Overall, long term IT projects will not be replaced, however the transition to agile IT is rising. By applying agile IT to certain projects, companies will be able to stay ahead of the game.
