Software Maintenance and Evolution

Software evolution refers to the study and management of the process of making changes to software over time. Therefore, it comprises maintenance, enhancement and re-engineering activities. Over several decades, studies have shown that 75% of software personnel spend their time on activities involving software evolution, which comprise 50% of IT costs. Hence, these activities constitute a significant proportion of work performed by most software professionals during their careers. The aim of this course is to teach a systematic approach to software maintenance and evolution. The course will not only discuss the engineering aspects, but also the applicable management practices.
