Information Systems Development- A Software Engineering Approach focuses on the evaluation model of ISs development in software developing SMEs in India. Information systems have to be effective and efficient for long term to keep pace with today''s global business scenario. For effectiveness / success , ISs must be developed with the standard and proven methodologies of IS development,like software engineering, for nurturing information systems. These practices are non-prevalent in software developing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Thus a standard model of IS development with a Software Engineering approach is the need of an hour so that SMEs can evaluate the present scenario of IS development practices. The book aims at the design of such model of IS development which reflects the effect of strategic alignment of IS; IS development approach and IS project Management on IS development. The book has been designed to help software professionals, academicians and researchers to identify and evaluate the realization of best practices of IS development in SMEs.
