What is software maintenance?
It is easy to think that software development ends once a product is completed and launched, but this isn’t the case. The software development lifecycle also critically includes the process of software maintenance, by which a system is maintained, analysed, updated, optimised, and kept up to scratch by a software development company.
Often in a separate team known as managed services, software development companies (or the good ones, at least) make sure that a product they have built and launched stays true to client needs as time goes along. The work isn’t done once the product is handed over, it continues into the future.
In this blog, we will discuss a little more about software maintenance and why it is important in the field of software development.
