Abstract

Providing informatics products and services is closely based on project principles. The more project principles are embedded, the more mature informatics processes are. Processes are defined by ISO/IEC 12207 standard, defining not only general guidelines for services design and development, but also necessarily followed principles. How successfully informatics companies match those two approaches, authors explored using survey conducted in informatics companies in the counties of Varaždin and Međimurje. The investigation has included the minimum of processes, activities and tasks for the project management, but also the quality of defining tasks which are necessary for starting, development and maintaining the informatics project. Four categories of questions were included: the starting of a project, the project's domain, the quality of the project and the project's influence on business success. Results of the provided research confirmed that the informatics companies sited in counties of Varaždin and Međimurje manage their projects at high level. The average grade is very good (4) on the scale from 1 to 5, according to related categories of standard request. Although the comparison of the results between two counties showed significant difference between companies’ approaches from the aspects of quality and projects results influence on company’s prosperity, and on the contrary, there is no significant difference between companies’ approaches from the aspects of project domain and conditions for their project beginning.
