To cope up with the frequently changing market conditions, organizations are finding it challenging to deliver value to customers early and frequently by using traditional approaches. Agile methodologies are seemingly more relevant and an easy to implement approach relatively. A certification from a highly credible institute like Project Management Institute reduces the effort of companies to evaluate knowledge and awareness about Agile methodologies. This certification also provides a structure to introduce Agile in an Organization.
Many IT companies who are into transactional application development for domains like BFSI, Insurance, Retail, Travel where process automation is the way of improving efficiency, Agile methodologies are used. To name a few; CISCO, Societe General, DELL, VISA, Delloitte, HP (Pl note: this list of companies can be very long)
