The Agile development model enables the enterprise to produce higher-qualify software that is more in tune with user needs and offers swifter release cycles. However, enterprise IT environments are rarely optimized to leverage the software acceleration and innovation advantages of Agile release cycles. Not only are traditional development environments slow to provision, they are difficult to change once created. *
