The comparison of agile software development processes and the classical primary business processes using their central aspects shows the similarity of the software development process and the classical product development process. Thus the software development process is one of the primary business processes of software development organizations. Although software development processes differ from classical business processes, their macro structures (core processes and supporting processes) are equal. Therefore it can be followed - regardless to the named differences - that special approaches of BPM are transferable to software development processes.
