In this paper, we present a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) on combining Agile development and Model-Driven Development (MDD). The objectives of this paper are to identify what are the main characteristics of current Agile Model-Driven Development (Agile MDD) approaches, as well as the benefits and the problems of adopting these approaches. Fifteen publications have been identified and selected as primary studies on which we conducted the analysis. The results show that Agile development and MDD can coexist and benefit from their integration. However, combining Agile and MDD is still in its early stages and more eort is required in research to advance this area. The main contributions of this paper are: detailed and condensed results in the context of current Agile MDD approaches, detailed results on the benefits of Agile MDD in practice, and the observed problems and challenges of the current Agile MDD approaches.
