The Banking, Financial Services and Insurance sectors continue to be affected by regulatory change as well as strict regulations and compliance requirements. These changes necessitate upgrades to existing IT systems. Set against this background, the requirement to deliver reliable and robust systems to a tight frame is of paramount importance. The IT professionals need to sustain revenue growth and retain market share in an increasingly competitive landscape. This takes place against a background of volatile trading conditions and uncertainties, in a sector where mistakes can cost millions.
While Agile development methods may offer solutions to many of these challenges, the complex and unique requirements of the financial services sector have perhaps slowed the trend to Agile adoption, in particular in organisations where there is a perception that Agile is incompatible with fixed project budgets.
