Software product quality certification conforming to ISO/IEC 25000 is featured in the Vol 3, No 3 of the Revista Latinoamericana de Ingeniería de Software (ReLAIS) [Latin American Magazine on Software Engineering], published by the Red de Ingeniería de Software de Latinoamérica (RedISLA) [Latin American Software Engineering Networw]. This issue is dedicated to the XI Jornadas Iberoamericanas de Ingeniería de Software e Ingeniería del Conocimiento y Congreso Ecuatoriano en Ingeniería de Software (JIISIC-CEIS'2015) [XI Ibero-American Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering and Ecuadorian Conference on Software Engineering].
The article Certificación de la Mantenibilidad del Producto Software: Un Caso Práctico [Certification of Software Product Maintainability: a Case Study] included in this issue presents a case study on certification of software product maintainability conforming to ISO/IEC 25000. In the case study several organizations took part: Enxenio as developer ot the evaluated software product, AQC Lab as evaluation laboratory, and AENOR as certification body.
In this article, the developer of the evaluated product highlights that, thanks to the evaluation, improvement and certification process, the maintainability of their product has effectively improved, resulting in lower costs of maintenance and adaptation to the needs of new customers. Therefore, the effort invested in refactoring the product is seen as an investment that will save costs in the future. Furthermore, the evaluation and certification of product quality according to ISO 25000 means for this developer a way to provide quality assurance to potential customers.
