The increasing globalization of software industry faces lot of challenges in software development and its final release to meet the stakeholder's requirements. Requirement gathering is a task difficult enough when done locally - but it is even more difficult when global stakeholder specify requirements across the world. Today's globalization of software development has its advantages, but also its drawbacks. Software release manager's major concern is to ensure the software release as per the schedule, cost, resource, constraints and requirements. Requirements are the foundation of the software release process. It provides the basis for approximation of costs and schedules along with the developing design and testing specifications. This paper analyses the main challenges faced in Global Software Environment. © 2014 IEEE.

Most of the vegetable crops are known to depend upon arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AM) symbiosis for growth and development, since AM fungi provide nutrients and water in exchange for photosynthates. The influences of AM fungi (Glomus intraradices (G) and Acaulospora laevis (A)) with Trichoderma viride (T) and Pseudomonas fluorescens (P) alone and in combinations on growth, mycorrhization, chlorophyll content, nutrient uptakes, and yield of broccoli plants were studied in pot culture under glasshouse conditions. The obtained results demonstrated that the single inoculation of broccoli plants with T. viride significantly increased the above ground fresh weight, root length, chlorophyll b, head diameter, root phosphorus, and shoot nitrogen in comparison to uninoculated control plants. On the other hand, consortium of G+A+T+P significantly increased plant height, above ground dry weight, root fresh weight, chlorophyll a, head fresh weight, and root nitrogen content. Similarly, G+T showed maximum leaf area, and P alone showed maximum uptake of shoot phosphorus. Whereas when P was supplied along with T, early flowering was recorded. AM fungal colonisation was negligible and only root tips were found infected in G or A treated plants which confirms low dependency of broccoli on AM fungi.

Software cost estimation predicts the amount of effort and development time required to build a software system. It is one of the most critical tasks and it helps the software industries to effectively manage their software development process. There are a number of cost estimation models. The most widely used model is Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO). In this paper, the use of back propagation neural networks for software cost estimation is proposed. The model is designed in such a manner that accommodates the COCOMO model and improves its performance. It also enhances the predictability of the software cost estimates. The model is tested using two datasets COCOMO dataset and COCOMO NASA 2 dataset. The test results from the trained neural network are compared with that of the COCOMO model. From the experimental results, it was concluded that the integration of the conventional COCOMO model and the neural network approach improves the cost estimation accuracy and the estimated cost can be very close to the actual cost. © 2012 IEEE.

This paper describes an approach used to reveal dynamics operating in supply of, and demand for, skilled Information and Communications Technology (ICT) employees. The impacts of changing demographics of the work force and society are investigated. The paper is much about what is needed to achieve implementation success as it is about the effective application job allocation strategy. The work force skill projecting model has been proposed which includes the conceptual matrix of IT and domain skills: a space diagram where the various IT and IT related professional could be placed. Through this the managers of ICT infrastructure can decide on the job allocations to human resource of their project in terms of skill cost and skill efficiency of the human resource.

In the present scenario when the software systems are getting increasingly complexed. The time lines and schedule are getting tightened day by day. The processes need to be expected as adaptable rather than rigid. The process of the development also needs to be redesigned. The old concept of sequential phase must be updated with the iteration. The processes must ensure the user acceptance with the accepted level of quality of the software. The need of time is that process of software development to be reviewed. The concept of Agility can be used to provide good quality solutions for the upcoming software system. The sustainable solution will be considered now onward that will be capable of maintaining quality, acceptance of changes at any time with a minimum cost and rescheduling of each phase of development. Agile Software Development can be a winner of coming future. But on the downside for which many times the agile processes are criticized are inability to work with the CMMI environment, this paper proposes a new model for the agile software development, that includes Customer feedback and project documentation as its major element that makes the agile development more auditable, accountable and process centric. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
