About software maintenance

After the initial development and go live, software systems enter their maintenance lifecycle. Maintenance includes error corrections, enhancements of capabilities, optimizations. Maintenance is necessary to correct and adjust systems to inevitable changes. The goal of software maintenance is to preserve or enhance the value of software systems over time. Maintenance ends when the product is retired, can span 10 or 20 years, or even more.

Software maintenance process differs from software development process, requiring activities not present in software development, such as Modification Requests, Impact Analysis, Upgrades. Software maintenance presents specific technical issues, including troubleshooting, target impact modifications, re-testing. It has specific management issues, for example aligning with organization objectives, staffing and knowledge continuity. Maintenance consumes majority of software lifecycle financial resources, costs are directly impacted by quality of design and knowledge continuity.

About hybrid model

Many companies are looking at maintaining software offshore to cut costs and use a larger resource pool for finding talent. While promising, so many times the experience becomes frustrating. Offshore software development proves to be more complex than many anticipate. Without proper discipline, experience, methodologies and tools, many offshore software projects do not realize their promise or fail to complete successfully.
