    • Copyright © Wondershare Software Information Technology (IT) projects are organizational investments that require  Time  Money  Other resources such as people, technology, facilities, etc. Organizations expect some type of value in return of this investment IT Project Management is a relatively new discipline that combines traditional Project Management with Software Engineering/Management Information Systems to make IT projects more successful.
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Larger projects have the lowest success rate and appear to be more risky than medium and smaller projects  Technology, business models and markets change so rapidly that a project that takes more than a year can be obsolete before they are completed.

    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Scope Management  Time Management  Quality Management  Cost Management  Risk Management
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  The scope can be completely defined  Scope definition can be done before the project starts  Software development consists of distinctly different activities which can be measured and estimated  Software development activities can be sequenced  There is always a way to produce meaningful estimates  The size of the project team doesn‟t affect the development process. The mythical Man-Month  One developer is equivalent to another  Metrics are sufficient to assess the quality of software.  Quality checklists solve all problems.
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Project risk management is the art and science of identifying, analyzing, and responding to risk throughout the life of a project and in the best interests of meeting project objectives  Main processes include:  Risk management planning  Risk identification  Qualitative risk analysis  Quantitative risk analysis  Risk response planning  Risk monitoring and control
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Risk management: process of identifying and controlling risks facing an organization  Risk identification: process of examining an organization‟s current information technology security situation  Risk control: applying controls to reduce risks to an organizations data and information systems

    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  A dictionary definition of risk is “the possibility of loss or injury”  Negative risk involves understanding potential problems that might occur in the project and how they might impede project success  Negative risk management is like a form of insurance; it is an investment
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Positive risks are risks that result in good things happening; sometimes called opportunities  A general definition of project risk is an uncertainty that can have a negative or positive effect on meeting project objectives  The goal of project risk management is to minimize potential negative risks while maximizing potential positive risks
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Several studies show that IT projects share some common sources of risk  The Standish Group developed an IT success potential scoring sheet based on potential risks  Other broad categories of risk help identify potential risks

    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Market risk  Financial risk  Technology risk  People risk  Structure/process risk
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  A risk breakdown structure is a hierarchy of potential risk categories for a project  Similar to a work breakdown structure but used to identify and categorize risks
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Unlike crisis management, good project risk management often goes unnoticed  Well-run projects appear to be almost effortless, but a lot of work goes into running a project well  Project managers should strive to make their jobs look easy to reflect the results of well- run projects
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Concerned with ensuring that the required level of quality is achieved in a software product.  Involves defining appropriate quality standards and procedures and ensuring that these are followed.  Should aim to develop a „quality culture‟ where quality is seen as everyone‟s responsibility.
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software Quality means that a product satisfies the demands of its specifications It also means achieving a high level of customer satisfaction with the product In software systems this is difficult customer quality requirements (e.g. efficiency or reliability) often conflict with developer quality requirements (e.g. maintainability or reusability)  software specifications are often incomplete, inconsistent, or ambiguous
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software Quality assurance  Establish organisational procedures and standards for quality. Quality planning  Select applicable procedures and standards for a particular project and modify these as required. Quality control  Ensure that procedures and standards are followed by the software development team. Quality management should be separate from project management to ensure independence.

    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Component-Based Software Engineering is a process that emphasizes the design and construction of computer-based systems using reusable software “components”. In CBSE, reusable component construction and component integration for software system are the major focus. Who are involved in Component-Based Software Engineering ?  -System analyst - Software engineers - Component software developers -  Application software integration engineers - Test engineers and QA - Project and product managers
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  Management of Complexity  Reduce Development Time  Increased Productivity  Improved Quality Development of Components Lack of Components Component Maintenance Costs Reliability and Sensitivity to changes Unsatisfied Requirements
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  CBSE views the system as a set of off-the-shelf components integrated within an appropriate architecture.  SE seeks to create a system from scratch.  CBSE Life Cycle is shorter.  CBSE develops Architecture.  CBSE is less expensive  CBSE does not have any standard development models like UML for SE.  CBSE is young, therefore long term maintainability is largely unknown.  SE can fulfill requirements more easily.  CBSE fulfillment of requirements is based on the available components. CBSE Waterfall Find Select Design Adopt Test Deploy Implementation Test Maintenance Replace Release
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software SP OOP COP Divide and conquer  for managing complexity  break a large problem down into smaller pieces Yes Yes Yes Unification of data and function  a software entity combines data and the functions processing those data.  improve cohesion Yes Yes Encapsulation  The client of a software entity is insulated from how that software entity’s data is stored or how its functions are implemented.  Reduce coupling Yes Yes Identity  Each software entity has a unique identity Yes Yes Interface  represent specification dependency  divide a component specification into interfaces  restrict inter-component dependency Yes 51
    • Copyright © Wondershare Software  CBSE is changing the way large software systems are developed. CSBE shifts the emphasis from programming software to composing software systems based on reusable components.  Young discipline  CBSE involves developing a system from pre-built software components  It has Advantages and Disadvantages.  Promote Large Scale Reuse  Reduce Cost We can expect that components and component-based services will be widely used by non-programmers for building their applications. Tools for building such applications by component assembly will be developed. Automatic component update over the Internet, already present today in many applications, will be a standard means of application improvement.
