    The past ten years have seen a radical shift in business application software development. Rather than developing software from scratch using a conventional programming language, the majority of commercial software is now developed through reuse - the adaptation and configuration of existing software systems to meet specific organizational requirements. The most widespread form of reuse is through... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the use of ontologies in different aspects of software engineering. This use of ontologies varies from support for software developers at multiple sites to the use of an ontology to provide semantics in different categories of software, particularly on the Web. The world's first and only software engineering ontology and a project management ontology in conjunction with a doma... View full abstract»

    Software architecture is a recognized and indispensable part of system development. Software architecture is often defined in terms of components and connectors, or the "high-level conception of a system". In recent years, there has been an awareness that not only the design itself is important to capture, but also the knowledge that has led to this design. This so-called architectural knowledge c...

    It seems that service oriented architecture (SOA) is to be this year's hot buzzword, rather than a well defined, meaningful and valuable part of the Enterprise Architecture landscape. Before the term fades away completely, perhaps we should agree what's valuable about the move to SOA and how to make the leap, and make the leap valuable. The SOA consortium is making great strides in defining SOA to... View full abstract»

    Summary form only given. No change happens in isolation, and the rate of change can have a significant impact on the acceptance level of a change. This paper reviews the interrelationships between technology, people at the micro, and macro level of organisational structure, business goals, and the external business environment as they interact within an IT change cycle.

    Most large and medium-sized organizations have shifted the focus of some or all of their organizational software development from tailored software, developed in object-oriented programming languages, to the use of configurable off-the-shelf packages or ERP systems. These systems offer a range of built-in functionality that can be adapted to specific requirements and offer opportunities for rapid ... View full abstract»

    Software process modeling has become an essential technique for managing software development processes. However, purely quantitative process modeling requires a detailed understanding and accurate measurement of software process, which relies on reliable and precise history data. This paper presents a semi-quantitative process modeling approach to model and manage software development processes. ... View full abstract»

    Traditional software teams consist of independently focused self-managing professionals with high individual but low team autonomy. A challenge with introducing agile software development is that it requires a high level of both individual and team autonomy. This paper studies the barriers with introducing self-organizing teams in agile software development and presents data from a seven month eth... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we investigate the status of the agile implementation phase within two Canadian organizations. We do this by comparing current agile process models to the industrial practice. Our results show that the organizations studied have adopted most of the activities as suggested in the agile models. However, they had to make some revisions, due to the fact that some of the guidelines as pr... View full abstract»
