Abstract: Software ecosystems are a promising paradigm to develop and market software systems by means of partnerships among companies. To ensure the healthy evolution of software ecosystems, companies must define strategies that strength their partnerships. In this paper, we investigate the factors that drive the evolution of software ecosystems formed by Small-to-Medium Enterprises. We present an exploratory case study of two emergent software ecosystems in order to analyse the main facilitators and barriers faced by participating companies. We adopt System Dynamics approach to create models expressing causal relations among these factors. By understanding the facilitators that should be reinforced and barriers that should be restrained, we believe that partners are better equipped to catalyse the success of their software ecosystems.
