Rapid Application Development Software

Rapid application development software emphasizes the fast and frequent release of prototypes and applications over the time-intensive design and requirements gathering that comes with more traditional development approaches. Enterprise IT teams leverage rapid application development software for projects that require significant business involvement and more frequent updates. These apps are often associated with efforts to differentiate the business and innovate through new business models and better customer experiences.
