"SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE FOR BUSINESS CHANGE"


ICSM is the major international conference in the field of software and systems evolution, maintenance, and management.

International business competitiveness is dependent on huge quantitiesof already installed, legacy software. To remain competitive, companies and organisations have to be able to change their business processes. The modification, improvement, and maintenance of their software makes this business change possible. Sometimes the required change is radical and revolutionary, but more often the required change is incremental.

For thesechanges, a major systems engineering problem arises -- cutting the cost, delay, and risk involved in changing the installed software to meet the changed business requirements.

ICSM'99 addresses solutions to this major problem. The focus of the conference is to explore the opportunities of software change, to overcome the disabling effects of the build-up of legacy systems, and to release the full potential of software as an enabler of business change.
