Aim of the special issue:

Software development is a complex activity which requires application of innovative ideas without compromising the reliability and quality in the end products. It requires better tools and techniques to be employed. Recent growth in knowledge management notion has also been seen as highly instrumental in improving organizational performance. In order to achieve the goal of efficient production of software and effective development processes, numerous KM approaches and standardization efforts have been suggested. However, a majority of the organizations are finding it difficult to adopt the guidelines and approaches, as there are numerous inherent issues.

The aim of this special issue is to: 1) invite and publish high quality original research contributions on the specialized theme of KM applications relating to software development processes; 2) to examine the impact of KM on software development processes; 3) to investigate the inherent issues and limitations with respect to KM strategies and 4) to disseminate the elements of good practices suggested and employed by researchers and practitioners in this field.

Subject Coverage:

The special issue invites research contributions, including case studies, on all aspects of knowledge management (KM) methodologies related to software development processes. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Strategies to promote KM in software industry
- Empirical studies of adopting KM methodologies in software houses
- Lessons learned (Success and Failure Cases)
- KM approaches for requirements elicitation
- Best practices in relation to KM in software development processes
- KM applications in system design
- Testing methodologies and novel KM paradigms
- Software standards in relation to KM
- KM for web services and SOA
- KM with respect to cloud computing environment
- Metrics to evaluate KM applications and strategies
- Workflow systems and KM methodologies
- Tools and technologies for effective KM
- KM and global software engineering
- Issues and barriers to effective KM implementation
- Case studies relating to KM in software development processes.
