Correlating Software Systems' Survivability with its Internal Complexity



Society is each time more dependent of information systems. In this way, system development has to be agile and achieve the desired level of quality for success. Therefore, it is essential ensure that these systems are highly maintainable and have a controlled evolution process. As software evolves the complexity of the software is increasingly growing to the extent that we cannot hand it easily. In this paper, we correlate how the internal complexity of software systems can affect systems survivability. The analysis of the systems evolution, regarding to complexity, can be used to support the developers to understand the behaviour of the system and avoid inactiveness.
