Since CASE (computer aided software engineering) adoption is a subject of the broader technology transition problem, ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 addresses the adoption practices appropriate for a wide range of computing organizations. ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 neither dictates nor advocates particular development standards, software processes, design methods, methodologies, techniques, programming languages, or life-cycle paradigms.
ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 will:

  • Identify critical success factors (CSF).
  • Propose a set of adoption processes.
  • Guide successful adoption in consideration of organizational and cultural environment.
  • The following groups are targeted as potential audiences:
  • CASE users.
  • Information systems managers.
  • Chief information officers (CIO).
  • CASE suppliers.
  • Software engineering consultants.
  • Those involved in the acquisition of CASE tools and technology.
  • Therefore ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 addresses aspects of CASE tools adoption. It is best used in conjunction with ISO/IEC 14102 for CASE tool evaluation and selection. It is complementary to related ISO/IEC documents which deal with the general aspects of these topics.

The purpose of ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 is to provide a recommended practice for CASE adoption. It provides guidance in establishing processes and activities that are to be applied for the successful adoption of CASE technology. The use of ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 will help to maximize the return and minimize the risk of investing in CASE technology. However, ISO/IEC TR 14471:2007 does not establish compliance criteria.
