The basic idea underlying computer-aided software engineering (CASE) technology is to increase a systems developer's productivity by providing a set of well-integrated, labor-saving tools that transform computer-based information systems (CBIS) development into an automated process. Two major issues of interest are addressed by this article. The first issue includes subjects related to the corporate data processing environment when adopting CASE technology for developing CBIS applications. The second issue includes subjects related to examining the impacts and benefits of using CASE technology as an automated development CBIS application tool within the system development life cycle.
