System Agility, Data Agility

December 26, 2011

The term agility has become a standard in the software industry to denote the ability of an organization to modify their product quickly, generally in small iterative steps, to respond to customer feedback, competitive landscape development, etc. The agility of a software product can be measured in terms of the latency between a motivating design change and the availability of that change to the user, moderated by some degree of quality assurance, regression testing and so on.
