"Software maintenance is the modification of a software after delivery to correct faults and to improve performance or other attributes". System requirements are changing fastly and to meet this requirement some changes are incorporated and maintained in the system.
At VerifiedWork, Software maintenance is performed to obtain the results from the software developed by correcting faults, improving design, implementing enhancements, interfacing with other systems. Accommodate programs of different hardware, software, system features, and telecommunications facilities and migrate a legacy software. The maintained system remains useful in their working environment. Maintenance applies to software developed using any software life cycle model.
Categories of Software Maintenance
Corrective maintenance of software is essential either to rectify some bugs observed while the system is in use or to enhance the performance of the system.
This includes modifications and updations when the customers need the product to run on new platforms, on new operating systems, or when they need the product to interface with new hardware and software.
A software product needs maintenance to support the new features that the users want or to change different types of functionalities of the system according to the customer demands.
This type of maintenance includes modifications and updations to prevent future problems with the software. Its goal is to address the problems, which are not significant at that moment but may cause serious issues in the future.
Software Reverse Engineering
At VerifiedWork, Software reverse engineering is performed to recover the design and requirement for the specification of a product from an analysis of its code. If our client had a pre-developed prototype, Reverse Engineering becomes vital in such cases since several existing software lacks proper documentation, are highly disorganized and their structure had to be degraded through a series of maintenance efforts. The benefits of reverse engineering are providing proper system documentation, Recovery of lost information, Assisting with maintenance, Facility of software reuse, and Discovering unexpected flaws or faults. This also enables our developers to add new features of developed software even if our clients would like to update their software. This engineering also gives hand to our team of software testers to run a frequent check of the software for virus and malware code.
Components of Software Maintenance
Change Request: In the maintenance process initially, the change request is made.
Change Management: In this place, the status of all the change requests is identified and described.
Impact Analysis: Identify all the systems and the system products affected by a change request, make an estimate of the resources needed to effect the change, analyze the benefits of the change.
System Release Planning: The schedule and contents of software released is planned. The changes are made to all types of software maintenance.
Change Implementation: The implementation can be designing, coding, and finally testing the changes. Preferably, the regression testing must be performed while testing the changes.
System Release: During release documentation, software, training, hardware will be changed.
