ON TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION - A Community Succession Model for Software Enterprise

Qianhui Liang, Weihui Dai

Abstract

In this paper, we have taken an economic approach of technological innovations to studying the issue of evolution in software enterprise. Based on Lotka–Volterra equations and equilibrium formula, we have built a model for the dynamics of software technological innovations. The model is applied in order to derive the typical succession patterns of communities and a method for optimal co-existence and interactions among the communities. We validate our model by presenting a case study on the development process of the software enterprises.
