Software industry is gaining momentum due to profound impact on the productivity of the various tasks. Typically software development life cycle includes, development activity and post release activities. The post release activities cover software maintenance and support. It is inevitable to deny the significance of software maintenance and support activities due to fairly a large size of the software. In this study we are analyzing the relationship of team size, application size and software maintenance and support activities. We used the latest dataset of International Standard Benchmark Group data repository containing the software maintenance and support information to conduct this empirical investigation. The results of this empirical investigation further reinforce the current perceptions of the significantly important role of application size, team structure and size on the software maintenance and support activities.
