The Software Configuration Management (SCM) process with its origin in hardware development was first applied to the software development environment in the 1950's. Since then many IT dynamics associated with this process have evolved, such as, software development methodologies, software process improvement standards, computing environments, and organizational needs. Through the observation of these IT dynamics, which the researchers called "the tetrad influences", it is now apparent that…

TLDR
A re-configurable information organization scheme comprising of self-managed, intelligent agents and infrastructural information network is proposed, so as to enable reengineering business process with aims at minimizing risks and side-effects.
Lean Enablers for Systems Engineering
TLDR
The Lean Enablers for Systems Engineering is a comprehensive checklist of nonmandatory practices and recommendations formulated as “do's” and “don't's" of SE, and containing tacit knowledge on how to prepare for, plan, execute, and practice SE and EM using Lean Thinking.
Configuration Management Stories from the Distributed Software Development Trenches
TLDR
A closer look at the role of CM in distributed projects -- where can standard CM techniques help, how can they be implemented, and what special challenges does distribution pose is taken.
Impact of Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing Platform on Software Engineering
TLDR
The traditional agile process model named Extreme Programming (XP) is extended and integrates interaction with the cloud provider to facilitate acceptance of cloud computing.
Towards Holistic Traceability Solution: From Systematic Literature Review to Proposed Traceability Model
TLDR
The authors propose to extend the definition of an existing traceability meta-model to combine both product and process knowledge perspectives to provide practical guidelines to IT practitioners in general and to process engineers in particular.
