Quantitative Techniques for Software Development The technological implementations for software development have undergone rapid conversions over the years. Every technology has received its share of praise and criticisms and each one has encountered its golden era. Even today the use of legacy systems and applications are still prevalent in the age of cloud computing and virtualization. The contribution of legacy techniques cannot be ignored as these tools were the gateway to advanced developments.

The role of the mainframe exponents is extremely critical for software development and application lifecycle management necessary for mainframe platforms. They have to be proficient in maintenance of existing mainframe products, legacy systems modernization, code re-engineering, code conversions, documentation and technical writing. ● Cloud Computing The cloud computing technology focuses on technology advisory and consulting services, architecture and engineering services. This technology propagates the employment of a virtualization environment with the PaaS, IaaS and SasS platforms. It provides services such as cost analysis, component placements, process optimization, auto-scaling, high availability, data recovery and backup, authentication and security measures, multi-tenant isolation, strategies for latency optimization, migrations, cloud appliances, streaming media, automated monitoring and deployment processes, cloudbased service interfaces and content services. ● Open Source Platforms The open source software development platform provides the business with enhanced flexibility and stability, quicker time-to-market, higher visibility, reduced cost of ownership, improved performances and enhanced return on investments. ● Mobile Frameworks The increased use of cell phones, computer tablets etc., has created the need for mobile application development to facilitate those who are on the move to work uninterruptedly. The mobile platform has to provide facilities for location based services, mobile media streaming, social networking, messaging and syncing, mobile advertisement and ad engines, gaming and mobile VoIP. ● Web Platforms
The web technology provides web-enabled applications for on-demand services and user-application interaction. The web technology has initiated the development of innovative eCommerce solutions with online, social and mobile commercial capabilities, interactive advertising facilities, web portals and specialized services, and consumer electronic solutions such as digital cameras, DVDs and Blu-ray players, set top boxes and cable boxes, LCD televisions and WiFi routers.
