Service Simplified: Software Maintenance Explained

3 分鐘的閱讀時間 1 月 16, 2024

 

 

Software maintenance is key to guarantee your software’s health, functionality, and security. But what is it exactly? And how can you make sure you’re doing everything correctly? In this article, we address some of the most Frequently Asked Questions about software maintenance.

What is software maintenance and how many types exist?

Software needs several types of maintenance. It may be just a routine task or a significant event. There are several types of software maintenance depending on the purpose:

  • Corrective Maintenance to correct or fix problems discovered by users or error reports.
  • Adaptive maintenance to keep the software product up-to-date and adapted to the ever-changing world of technology and business.
  • Perfective Maintenance to keep the software relevant over a long time. It provides new features and user requirements for refining the software and improving reliability and performance.
  • Preventive Maintenance to prevent problems that are not significant now but may cause severe issues in the future.

Why do I need software maintenance?

The lifecycle of your software is ongoing and allows the software to evolve and deliver more value through development and maintenance.

 

As technology is rapidly changing, software must be updated and maintained correctly. Maintenance contracts provided by professional software suppliers offer peace of mind by keeping you covered for compatibility issues, bugs, and other problems.

Financial-wise, you can gain control over your maintenance budget with proactive software maintenance contracts. If your software receives regular updates, your overall costs will be reduced to a planned yearly maintenance fee. This eliminates unexpected repair and production downtime costs caused by software issues.

Moreover, regular updates can address minor issues and improve the software’s functionality, performance, compatibility, and security, particularly if performed once a year.
