Conference paper


The paper is a work in progress developed with the collaboration of the Laboratory of Computer Science of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Buenos Aires. The main aim of this research is the analysis, from a qualitative and quantitative point of view, of the characteristics of the principal methodologies used for development e-services in the sector ICT in Argentina. The research methodology is based on a descriptive investigation based on questionnaires and focus group to the projects manager of the 272 software houses subscribed to the — Cámara de Empresas de Tecnologías de Información de Argentina, that includes the principal national and foreigners actors that operate in the ICT sector in Argentina. The first results of the search have made to emerge that under favorable context conditions the actors experiment innovative solutions. In the case in examination, the characteristics of the methodologies of development of architectures for e-services, the research is underlining the use of the c.d. Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in comparison to systems formalized of methodologies of development [1, 2].
