Collaborative development

Transforms software development to deliver quality customer experiences with speed

Collaborative development brings business, development, and quality assurance teams together so they can continuously adjust the project’s business goals based on customer feedback. They stay closely aligned throughout the project lifecycle to gain faster delivery of customer value.

To reap the full benefit of collaborative development, these interdependent teams need a scalable, integrated and open development platform that supports an agile approach, such as Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe). This open platform needs to unify all diverse teams, including developers committed to keeping their current tools. Those who need to create and deploy quality web and mobile applications can leverage IBM® Bluemix™, the integrated cloud platform which helps to save project time and costs with instant services, runtime and infrastructure.
