The significance of software maintenance

Maintenance plays an important role in the life cycle of a software product. It is estimated that there are more than 100 billion lines of code in production in the world. As much as 80% of it is unstructured, patched and not well documented. Maintenance can alleviate these problems. Maintenance played in iterative, agile, component-based and open source development models.
As software systems age, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep them ‘up and running’ without maintenance. Software maintenance is a important phase in the software development life cycle.

Software maintenance from a Sharpsys perspective

Creating or developing a software solution is only half the job done. The need and capability to make that software solution scalable, commanding, and complete is a different story altogether and hence the importance of these elements can in no way be underestimated. These criteria have to be fulfilled and resolved in order to make the solution a success story but most of the IT consultant firms fail to make a mark in these specific areas. Sharpsys is a name to consider with in the all important sector of software maintenance.
