RUP, Iterative Development & Agile Software Development

RUP is a standard in the modern iterative development and agile software development world, and is an implicit nod to the "real-world" hurdles faced by business software development teams. The iterative development process in general is best referred to as a "discipline" for developing business systems (applications). The process consists of development of iterations of the final deliverable, each iteration including requirements, design and analysis. With each iteration, the system grows bit by bit until the final application is in place. In a related vain, agile software development is a method, or methodology, for dealing with constantly updated requirements and features and meant to combat the disconnect that often occurs between varying teams within an organization. One of the foremost aspects of agile software development is the incremental changes that are made along the way, a takeoff on the iterative development concept. Likewise, Scrum, which is an agile software development methodology, is one in which 30-day periods are created for the delivery of certain parts of a project and a highly-disciplined schedule of meetings and development is adhered to in the effort to efficiently create systems.
