Dinesh Kumar Saini, Moinuddin Ahmad . Return on Investment and Effort Expenditure in the Software Development Environment. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 4, 7 ( December 2012), 35-41. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450813
Software development is tedious, expensive and requires lot of resources and investment. Justification of the resources and investments are highly required in the software industry. Development of reliable and quality software has become increasingly important in today's world. A static model of the software development life cycle that treats all modules similarly is becoming inadequate to the task. In this paper efforts are made to quantify the concept of return on investment and factors responsible for improving the return on investment. In the second part of the paper, we are trying to justify the effort expenditure and how to optimize the effort expenditure.
