IEEE, in its standard 610.12-1990, defines software engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined, which is a computable approach for the development, operation and maintenance of software.
Software engineering is a process of analyzing user requirements and then designing, building, and testing software application which will satisfy that requirements
Important reasons for using software engineering are:
- Large software
- Dynamic Nature
Increased market demands for fast turnaround time is the biggest challenges of software engineering field. Additional demands include:
- Dealing with the increased complexity of software required in new applications
- The diversity of software systems that need to communicate/operate with each other
- The need to develop trustworthy software
- The quest for increased efficiency in component-based reuse and automatic code
At the core of software engineering is the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Also known as the software engineering paradigm, SDLC is the development strategy that encompasses the software process, methods and tools.
SDLC describes the period of time that starts with the software system being conceptualized and ends with the software system being discarded after usage.
Want to learn more? Tonex offers Software Engineering Training Bootcamp, a 3-day intensive course intended for software developers, software engineers, system engineers, test engineers, project managers, testing, verification & validation and configuration project managers.
Participants learn about software requirements analysis, software delivery cycles, software development with changing stakeholders and requirements, management and process control. Learn about traditional and agile methods and how to deliver software in time-boxed iterations, manage requirements and prioritize work to satisfy stakeholders.
Software Engineering Training also teaches you about the technical best practices, and how, in a changing environment, to communicate and manage requirements.
Related available courses include the 4-day Software Engineering Training – Crash Course, the 2-day Introduction to Secure Software Engineering Training and the 3-day Software Reliability Engineering Training.
