MCIS helps practitioners maintain their software systems. For example, which files should be tested or fixed first and by who? Which bug to fix first? Did the performance of our system degrade compared to the previous release? How can we improve the energy consumption of our system? Will this change have nasty consequences on other features?
MCIS helps practitioners release their products faster, but without sacrificing quality. For example, how healthy is the build system? How are implementation changes by different development teams integrated and tested towards inclusion in the next release? How can we prepare our development process and software system for continuous delivery?
MCIS' helps practitioners understand their software systems and construction infrastructure. For example, how does the concrete architecture of this software component look like? What features and functionality has the development team been working on? Which contributors have been the most productive? How does our construction infrastructure work?
