Need for Social Media Approach in Software Development


Objective: This paper discusses the need for social media approach in various software development processes to make it more collaborative which will result in increased productivity and better quality of software delivered. Methods/ Analysis: To achieve more collaboration in software development, social interface methods are to be used. Usage of Social media methods like tagging, posting and commenting improves the communication among the team members. Findings: Software development typically is carried out by different teams working in different geographic locations and so the need for higher collaboration among teams is important for success of a project. Traditional ways of documenting the requirements, creating test cases, defect tracking have not been modified to leverage the enhanced connectivity that the current generation has. There is a need to create a new method to perform the software engineering tasks in a more interactive way. This will help in leveraging current social media techniques to implement the efficient practices from existing software development methodologies. Applications/Improvements: Collaborative platform can be used in software development, project management and also to evaluate the productivity and performance of a team member
Keywords: Collaborative Software Development, Software Development, SDLC using Social Media Techniques
