The fundamental problem that confronts Pakistani software industry is that they have very limited experience in software process improvement strategies. We hardly find any Capability Maturity Model (CMM) level 3, 4 or 5 certified company in our software industry. It is therefore, necessary to find out the problems that are faced by companies in adopting CMM or its components. As a first step software configuration management (SCM), which is one component or key process area of CMM level 2, is focused in this research for evaluation. This paper is based on an auditor-based survey of 38 Islamabad based software companies. The goal was to find our adherence of these companies to SCM strategies. Some issues are identified, that need to be resolved for successful implementation of SCM. This paper also highlights where Islamabad based software companies rank them with respect to CMM.
