Distributed Application Extensions and Obsolescence as Risk Generating Factors


  • Catalin Alexandru TÄ‚NASIE



Extending distributed IT&C applications raises risks associated to integrating new modules in already existing functional areas, influencing performance and data relevancy. The current paper details on the actors and operational, as well as analytical areas of impact. The software application used to test and refine assessment models, MERICS, is presented alongside obsolescence-related factors. A model on evaluating moral decay is detailed and conclusions are drawn relating to the effects of usage-stage distributed application-related activities.
