    As far as I know the most widely used SDLC in the IT industry is Agile, how true is that?

      The difference between agile and waterfall in practice only is important in the first stage of the whole lifecycle, until the first delivery of the full product.

      After that, what happens during the remaining lifetime of the system (usually at least 10 times as long as the initial development) can’t be described as such.

      That being said, your question isn’t really clear. After all, “best”, “available” and “most widely used” are not the same.

      – All development strategies are available.
      – What’s best depends on the circumstances. The project manager decides.
      – The pure waterfall method, as you learned until 1995 or so, is not used any more, I think, for any system of a significant size.

      While these are great systems at many companies the apps are developed by a single person. They wrangle the dev system together, make the app and sometimes the hardware.

      These cowboys are all over the world and upset those that want to subscribe to the one, the true, the only way of developing apps and systems.

      From my view, the company and project manager decides. Or if the system is small, let the cowboy do it.
