"Agile" software development is an increasingly popular development process for producing software in a flexible and iterative manner that can deliver value to the enterprise faster, reduce project risk and allow adaptation to changes more quickly. Open source software components have characteristics that afford their use in agile processes because they are modular, component oriented and standards-based.
