Strategies to facilitate the implementation of good practices in software engineering for smes in latin america through agile techniques

Project Details

Description

One of the most talked about issues in recent times has been whether agile methodologies and process models (cmmi, iso 15504 spice, etc.) could work together (glazer hillel, 2012).perhaps that confrontation came from something that today is a myth, and that is the belief that process is synonymous with cascading life cycle, which is not the case (omran, 2008). in any case, today there are more and more companies that have managed to combine both approaches, taking advantage of agile methodologies and models such as cmmi or iso 15504 (glazer hillel, 2012). however, software development companies continue to demand strategies that facilitate the implementation of good practices that will lead them to reach the levels of maturity described in these standards, regardless of the development methodology they implement, the methodologies being the highest trend currently. agilebearing in mind 1) that the compatibility between international standards and models of process improvement for software development is a myth and 2) that there is a latent need for sme software developers to work in the context of agile methodologies; it is proposed to carry out an analysis of the techniques and methods that support the implementation of good practices for software development in agile work environments.

Objective

Propose a set of light techniques that allow to easily implement good project management practices and risk management for software development in agile environments.

Expected results

The methodology selected to approach the present research is the science based on design, from its acronym in english design science in information systems research (wohlin, höst, & henningsson, 2001), which aims to contribute in the solution of relevant problems to the at the same time significant contributions are made to the area of ??knowledge, through the analysis of problems not yet solved in a real world environment and its resolution in a novel way. for the methodology, the corresponding cycles will be addressed, as follows: relevance: in this cycle information related to the topics in which the project is framed will be collected and collected, such as agile methodologies, methods and software process improvement techniques associated with good project management practices and risk management.to achieve compliance with this cycle, the following activities associated with objectives 1 and 2 are proposed: 1. study the most commonly used techniques to implement good practices in project management and risk management in software development. 2. categorize the techniques according to good practices for project management and risk management in software development. 3. establish a correspondence between the techniques studied and good practices in project management and risk management in software development according to its usefulness and ease of implementation in agile environments. rigor: the existing documentation on the implementation techniques and the traceability analysis carried out will be analyzed. the following activities are associated with the objectivethe following activities are associated with the objective
