ISMA10 – Important Dates!

July 31, 2014 Conference

ISMA10 “Creating Value from Measurement”, will be held April 30, 2015
in Charlotte, North Carolina USA

 Over the last several years Information Technology organizations have been moving their focus from software to services and non-functional issues. Function Point Analysis still remains a beneficial technique for estimating and sizing software solutions from functional user requirements, but needs to be augmented by other metrics that deal with the non-functional side. SNAP, the new IFPUG method for sizing non-functional requirements does that. Well-known best practices for service management, such as Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and ISO 20000 standards, consider ‘value’ as the key metric. Value-based management deals with balancing short-term and long-term goals of stakeholders with differing perspectives, using informed decision making to stay competitive in the marketplace.

This tenth edition of the IFPUG ISMA Conference will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers to discuss the most recent advances in planning and sustaining measurement programs from both practical and theoretical perspectives. We invite professionals responsible for, involved in, or interested in software measurement to share innovative ideas, experiences, and concerns within this scope.
