To better evaluate and anticipate those profound impacts of e-commerce, therefore, it is important to further refine our understanding of consumers' e-shopping behavior.
E-commerce software developers are under pressure to develop applications at a record pace. (Aoyama 1998)The widespread lack of process discipline and procedural guidance available for such market driven environments highlights the need of a framework to support practitioners' development efforts. We present a validated evolutionary software development (Anton and Carter 2003) process, the EPRAM (Evolutionary Prototyping with Risk Analysis and Mitigation) Model, for rapid development in e-commerce (electronic commerce) environments. The EPRAM Model explicitly addresses the challenges inherent in small-team rapid development projects requiring no more than 12 people. The model was intentionally designed to comply with the Level 2 KPAs (Key Process Areas) of the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model (CMM); it combines evolutionary prototyping with an aggressive risk mitigation strategy to ensure
that proposed requirements adhere to all established security and privacy policies. ...Show more
