    In the past few decades, a large number of different approaches to software development have been introduced in order to adapt and satisfy customer needs and requirements that change during the development project. A wide variety of software development frameworks have evolved, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. A certain approach is not necessarily suitable for use by all software development projects. Choosing the best methodology for software development depends on several factors as project size and complexity, level of innovation, internal and external factors, available technology, organizational culture or project and team considerations. Agile software development methods are accepted worldwide as cost-effective and time-sensitive methodologies for software development in organizations in order to face the new challenges in this competitive environment. The aim of this paper is to identify, analyze and characterize traditional and agile software development approaches with practice use cases from our software development project and lifecycle.
