Software Process Improvement (SPI)

Improve your software processes to enhancethe performance of your enterprise

You must have considered increased customer satisfaction, productivity, quality, cost savings, and cycle time reduction before supplementing your business with different types of softwares and business applications. Achievement of these objectives however may seriously hamper if the business applications which you are using contain designing loop holes. Poorly designed software processes have negative consequences on the economic performance of an enterprise & often result in high cost of operations, inefficient use of resources and lost market opportunities. Lack of quality and reliability, poor customer satisfaction, and poor internal morale are the results of poorly designed processes. On the other hand, a well-designed software process has a positive effect on the bottom-line economic performance of a software enterprise which is often measured in terms of productivity and cost efficiency.

SPI is important because it is the primary means by which a new and improved software process is created. This is done in order to achieve significant economic benefits at the least possible costs. Business Beam provides following services in software process improvement:
