An Improved Software Development Process for Small and Medium Software Development Enterprises Based on Client’s Perspective

Fawaz Alsaade, Noor Zaman, Mohd Fadzil Hassan and Azween Abdullah

Abstract:
Currently, the Global Software Development (GSD) has changed the overall software development paradigms thus resulting in of GSD, a large number of small and medium sized software development companies. All these companies prefer to follow lightweight agile based methodologies of software development due to limited resources available. Generating or developing a new software development process is not feasible for these companies; therefore the preference is given to tailor an existing software development process to use it. The existing work on tailoring a software development process is of very surface level that provides guidelines to large software development companies and tailor only one or two processes. It does not provide a general framework on process tailoring especially for small and medium sized companies. The main objective of this was to addresses this limitation and presents a process tailoring framework for small and medium sized companies which are following agile based methodologies. The client was identified as a critical element in agile methodologies that provide basis for the formulation of process tailoring framework. A case study of real projects was selected as a research method to validate the framework and its various components.
