We specialize in improving performance of software products by refactoring and optimizing source code, and fixing defects.
Our maintenance activities can be categorized into four classes:
- Adaptive – modifying the system to cope with changes in the software environment
- Perfective – implementing new or changed user requirements which concern functional enhancements to the software
- Corrective – diagnosing and fixing errors, possibly ones found by users
- Preventive – increasing software maintainability or reliability to prevent problems in the future
An integral part of software is the maintenance one, which requires an accurate maintenance plan to be prepared during the software development. It should specify how users will request modifications or report problems. The budget should include resource and cost estimates. A new decision should be addressed for the developing of every new system feature and its quality objectives. The software maintenance, which can last for 5–6 years (or even decades) after the development process, calls for an effective plan which can address the scope of software maintenance, the tailoring of the post delivery/deployment process, the designation of who will provide maintenance, and an estimate of the life-cycle costs. The selection of proper enforcement of standards is a challenging task and is of utmost importance to all concerned stakeholders.
