In 1995, Jackie Fenn noted that technologies, no matter how different they were, generally followed a certain pattern with respect to hype and time - overenthusiasm, followed by disillusionment, and then a gradual improvement in the technology that could lead to maturity. She called this pattern the Hype Cycle and it remains one of Gartner's premier tools for technology assessment.
Today, in the improvement phase, just being able to bring software products to market is no longer acceptable as companies realize that development processes affect time to market, cost of product and service delivery. Large companies have realized that flawed processes cause delays, introduce redundancies, add to costs and customer dissatisfaction. Today, a lot of resources are being focused on introducing or upgrading development processes, and tuning them to increase performance, reduce costs, and reduce inherent bugs.
Companies from small to large need to review their development processes and methodologies to produce products that appeal to a larger audience with increased flexibility. iNEK understands that customers do not want to be tied to one technology. They are demanding that most software will be developed on global, acceptable, open-standards, easily integrated into other systems and easily customizable.
