My Organization Works with FP. How Do We Start Using SNAP?


Presented by Alfonso González Mateo 

Session Description: There are many, more and more, organizations that are committed to use the size of software to help themselves to make their development models more efficient. From budgeting stages to the vendors management using productivity and quality controls.

However, throughout all these years it has been common to find a black box, the “non-measurable” software, coming from non-functional requirements.

Until now, there was little we could do beyond monitoring and controlling generalized behavior and its evolution over time.

Fortunately, today we have SNAP, and it really helps, not only to monitor and track this type of development, but also to make it more efficient over time. How do we implement it? Throughout this presentation we will see what aspects we should take into account, recommendations, and lessons learned derived from a real implementation of SNAP in a client used to using Function Points.
