The Importance of it Methodologies

As many industries use information technology and focus on the development of software, it is appropriate to describe the IT environment to explain why different methodologies are needed for different things. For example, many construction companies that use the standard waterfall methodology are today using IT methodologies such as RAD to bring in their predictive and "heavy" schedules more quickly than before. And it appears to be working successfully.

With almost all IT projects today, we typically encounter any one of the following scenarios in which we need to adopt a development methodology. An IT project may consist of three core tiers:

Graphics User Interface tier (front-end). Usually done by visual development languages using tools such as Visual Studio.NET, Java.

Application middle tier. Usually addressed by a business-centric methodology.

Database tier (back-end). Usually accessing one or many databases to retrieve data or information, using tools such as SQL, Java, or object components.

The same development cannot be used for each tier. For example, you are tasked with an IT project in which you have to use only the top layer the front-end then you need to consider your specific development options. They may be application specific. The same applies for the other two tiers.
