Abstract

In an attempt to address the productivity and quality problems afflicting the software industry, many organizations are turning toward computer-aided software engineering (CASE) technology as a potential solution. Unfortunately, the inflated claims of vendors and unreasonable expectations of new users have led to many failed CASE adoption efforts. This guide answers questions organizations may have concerning CASE technology, and provides a strategy for the adoption of CASE tools into an organization.
