Abstract

The software industry recognizes the value of VSEs in contributing valuable products and services. Unfortunately current ISO/IEC standards do not completely address the needs of VSEs. Due to this, the ISO/IEC 29110 standard has been developed. The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact of the initiative by means of a systematic literature review of the ISO/IEC 29110 standard. This analysis was conducted using the most significant bibliographic databases. The result of the analysis reflects some tendencies in research that target the development of software process assessment and SIP models for supporting the standard, the performance, creation and utilization of deployment packages, pilot projects and ISO/IEC 29110 standard implementation approaches, the encouragement on concluding the remaining profiles or the creation of new profiles and the design, development and implementation of documentation and knowledge management tools in order to support the adoption of the standard by VSEs.
