Currently, the software is clearly an important element in the success of companies in the global marketplace. In this context, the quality of the software business is very important, as well as any cost associated with insufficiencies, bugs or errors to the next step of the software life cycle is not allowed. For this reason, many software suppliers and their clients who embrace new systems and procedures to improve the quality and level of security program.
Nevertheless their software, although the general trend in the improvement of quality, many software companies release a closely watched programs and continuous improved. Why? Because as the need for specialized software for specific business processes will increase internationally, the complexity associated with software development is also growing significantly. These challenges include, among others, the choice of sources and types of services available, compatibility required by the current legislation, the increasing complexity of technology and the development process, and clearly economy.
Regarding destabilization sources and types of services, enterprises can choose from in the time- sourcing, out-sourcing and co-sourcing, as well as opt for free software applications (open source). In addition, out-sourcing may mean that the work done around the place customers or suppliers. In other words, dispersed development teams, and quality assurance demands a more efficient and transparent program to facilitate development with several teams and, consequently, the quality software.
However, supplier obligations to ensure software compliance across the country and around the world of law and other regulations, as well as localization of software programs to compete in the worldwide market, also mandates that effective management of quality and transparency of the process. Results and costs of low security level, adding an additional layer of complexity, and serves as another motivator for companies to adopt a policy of good quality in all systems, and especially Developing programs.
Likewise, the fast pace of technology change, the development of multicore, collaborative Web usage, etc., require a specific approach in order to really benefit from the new advances in technology and use it to Improve quality.
Ultimately, the current economic crisis, with a significant reduction in resources, makes the problem with a software package or a critical shortage of adequate and , often, the results and the cost will be affordable to be done by companies. This means that the margin of error for software companies is dramatically reduced because there are fewer staff and financial resources available to respond.
It appear much more clearly in a complex environment like we have today, a comprehensive strategy on quality and quality system are effectively applied during the software life cycle is important for the success of both the client and present the software companies in markets around the world.
