|French term or phrase: Maintenance évolutive|
|"Maintenance préventive, corrective et évolutive du Progiciel"|
I have found both "upgradeable" and "scalable" as translations for "évolutive" in this context. I think "scalable" is probably most appropriate however I am not 100% sure...
I used to come across this term regularly in software maintenance contracts when working in-house at an IT service company - and we generally translated it by "upgrade maintenance".
It refers to the maintenance that may be required as and when changes, updates or upgrades are made to the software.
I wouldn't use scalable in this context - it's not the maintenance that is scalable, but rather, the system, meaning that it can be safely updated and "scaled" to meet new requirements or support new software developments, for example.
