In the past ten years there has been a great deal of interest in the concept of an Integrated Project Support Environment (IPSE) as a complete, unifying framework of services supporting most (or all) phases of software development and maintenance. In this paper we evaluate the current state of research work in this area, suggest some reasons for the relative lack of success, and make proposals for ensuring measured progress in the future.
