Phases Required For Agile Software Development
Ideation and planning
This phase focuses on planning and creating a detailed map to DevOps workflow for iteration, deployment, management, and issue tracking
Programs, Development, and Configuration
This is the stage where the work is focused on the development of the software, reviewing its functionality, source code, and configuration. Some commonly used tools are Bitbucket, GitLab, and Github.
The testing phase also called the QC (quality control) phase, is responsible for verifying the software’s source code, functionality through the white box, black box, stand-alone, and stress testing. Some commonly used tools are Parasoft, FlawCheck, Delphix, etc.
This is the phase where the software is actually released in its environment, this stage includes changes, approval for release, to and fro feedback to the other phases, and automated release. Some commonly used tools are Puppet, Chef, Salt, and Ansible.
