In this article the focus is on software evolution, which is an important part of software engineering. In practice, software development does not stop when a system is delivered but continues throughout the lifetime of the system. After the system has been deployed, external pressure for change can generate new requirements for the existing software. This change aspect, which is a characteristic of software engineering, should be taken into consideration when developing and modeling new software systems. In this paper the theme was studied using experience gained from the piloting of a reference system developed in an earlier research project carried out by T ampere University of Technology. Software evaluation is examined from the point of view of system developers, administrators (maintenance), and end users based on a concrete long-term piloting period.
