Ned Chapin presents a favorable review of our book in the Journal of Software Maintenance and Evolution (February 2009)

The book’s emphasis on the smaller software maintenance tasks sets this book apart from others in the software maintenance literature. In practice, many of the smaller maintenance tasks are either evaluative maintenance or corrective maintenance, where, as the book notes, such tasks have often not had the guidance of either vigorous project management or consistent local management attention. This book’s extensive glossary is an outstanding and helpful feature.

Dr. Alain April

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.
