White Paper by CYBERGROUPUSA Focuses on the Software Maintenance Cycle of a Software Products Life

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- Cyber Group, Inc. today released a white paper, "The 70% Solution; Fulfilling the Application Software Lifecycle," that focuses on how application software companies can unwittingly overlook significant portions of their products' lifecycle, resulting in consistent under performance of their products and services. The paper points out that the most effective way for a software development company to optimize its products and/or services is to proportion the in-market portion of the lifecycle to other experts.

According to John Pillow, Cyber Group software engineering vice president of sales and marketing, "Most software developers are simply not interested in maintaining a product once they have developed it. They would rather move on to a new product or service and let someone else worry about maintaining the software. In these scenarios, partnering with a technology expert can be a rational and perhaps only viable choice."

Given the negative ramifications that result when engineering resources are misallocated, the Cyber Group paper offers a framework for understanding the requirements for software engineering throughout the lifecycle of an application software product. The remaining and often neglected 70 percent of the effort and associated cost are attributed to maintenance, enhancement, re-engineering, migration, continued testing and deployment. In fact, post-market existence comprises the majority of the lifecycle of a software product or service and must be competently maintained in order to manifest the product's full capability and return on investment.
