Abstract

Given the increasing development in the area of software process improvement and the great efforts made for development; many researchers expressed the importance of deploying software process improvement and developing its approaches. The small and medium enterprises play a prominent role in our planet economy (around the year 2008, inside the folks The Nation's Association of Software restore Publication rack small and medium enterprises). Researchers claimed how the standardization of the software process is required for the reason that the software capability maturity model presents some recommended practices in several key process areas that have been shown to enhance software process capabilities. A survey across sample of five Sudanese Software companies has been conducted; This paper presents proposed Small and Medium software Enterprises definition and problems facing them in adopting Software Process Improvement in Sudan in contrast of some of international studies.
