Models for Mobile Application Maintenance Based on Update History

Xiaozhou Li, Zheying Zhang, Jyrki Nummenmaa

Abstract

Good software development and particularly maintenance practices form an important factor for success in software business. If one wants to constantly produce new successful releases of the applications, a proper efficient software maintenance process is the key. In this work, we study data from mobile application maintenance to understand and conceptualize how mobile application maintenance takes place. Based on the data on release history, we deduce different mobile application maintenance models from the perspectives of maintenance scheduling and maintenance requirements.
