What: The Market Connections-FierceGovernmentIT PulsePoll.
Why: This two-part study examines the benefits 200 federal IT managers attribute to using modular development methods over the traditional waterfall approach in IT projects. In part one, the respondents — who work in both civilian and military agencies — cite an IT project success rate of 60 percent since 2010. Modular adopters report higher success rates, however, and 64 percent of respondents felt agile development improves IT project outcomes. The full study includes the metrics used to break down IT project successes.
The study’s second portion examined the top obstacles and success factors for federal IT projects.
