The S3M is already referred by the ISO/IEC TR 19759:2015 standard software maintenance chapter. The S3M is referred as a best practices framework that offers guidance on improving software maintenance processes. A proposal for an ISO/IEC 15504 reference model for software maintenance will be presented to ISO/IEC JTC1 in the future.

I am full professor of Software Engineering at the University of Québec in Montréal, in its Software Engineering faculty. I have more than 30 years of Helthcare, Finance/Banking and Telecommunications IT industry experience, especially in Cloud Computing, Big Data, software acquisition, contracts, software quality assurance and business process management. I am more comfortable with open source, practical applications and technology transfer to industry.
Currently I concentrate on research projects. In the past I was the recipient of the ISO award for higher education in standardization in 2011, as well as the chair of the Software Engineering gratuate program and of the Software Engineering departement. I also published Software Engineering Books: Software Maintenance Improvement and Software Quality Assurance.
