Before we get straight into the answer to different software development methodologies, it is important for all to understand what software development methodologies are.  You can also call it a system development methodology too. It is a part of software engineering and can be defined as a framework that will be used for the structuring of plans besides designing the process for the development of the information system.  

After making so many years of effort the industry of information technology reached the position where software developers are having strong and complete control over almost anything which remains on the tips of our finger.  Software development completely changed this world and made it limitless. The best part of software development methodology is that there are different types of it available and it’s the sole discretion of the developer to decide or the decision of the company to select the effective software development methodology. 

The software development process segregated the development phase of software development for developing useful and effective software for the industry. The important phases include:

•    Designing of software

•    Product management

•    Project management

Some of the popular software development methodologies include the following:

  1. Waterfall model:
    It is a traditional model used for the development of software. It is also known to be a classic style for software development. Its key advantages include; simple and easy understandability, easy management, development completes in one time and thus saves time.  It is an ideal choice for smaller projects and testing the software is easy too.

  2. Agile software development:  
    It is a technique or methodology which is used for designing a management process for software in a disciplined manner. It offers the scope to make a frequent alteration in the program. It is one such conceptual framework to manage several other software projects. It reduces the level of risk by designing the software within a shorter time frame box known as iterations.

  3. Scrum:
    Well, the methodology of the scrum was introduced as an additional layer for agile technology. Its main target is to improvise productivity especially in the cases when the progress faced a halt. All features of Scrum are taken care of by the Scrum master who ensures team stability. 

Apart from the above three, there are several other software development methodologies which include crystal methods, extreme programming, lean development, joint application development, rapid application development, feature-driven development and many more are there on the list.
