Existing process models for software development are too resource intensive for small organisations.
This paper proposes EProMS, an e-commerce based process model which takes into account the limited
resources of these organisations. It distributes the software development process over several small
organisations. These organisations, then, co-operate through an e-commerce layer to produce
market-driven software. On competitive markets the distribution allows organisations in the
co-operation to specialise in specific aspects of software development. This helps them to reduce
costs and time to market and achieve a high degree of users' satisfaction.
