Course Title: SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT ANALYTICS
Duration: Ond day

Give yourself an edge...
 
Contemporary software development environments are producing, by default, large quantities of data about systems, development activity, as well as project status, risks and prospects. These data can give you an edge – if you can extract and interpret the relevant information, and have the confidence to act on the insights it gives you.
 
Sound analysis that delivers credible results gives you that edge. It gives decision makers, whether technical staff or managers, the confidence to act on the information extracted from these subtle and complex environments, and the ability to communicate the information convincingly and unambiguously.
 
This one day course brings together, for the first time, the most useful and robust analytical and statistical methods for extracting information for software development’s complex, unique and occasionally messy data. It shows how anyone can make friends with their data, learn from it, act - and share what they have learned with others.

  Course Title: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF SOFTWARE MEASUREMENT
Duration: One day

In fast changing, design intensive and knowledge working environments good information is critical for high performance. The ability to measure and evaluate is fundamental. It informs decision making and increases confidence.
 
This intensive one day course distils more than twenty years experience of software measurement to show how anyone can master this essential, but notoriously elusive skill.
 
The course has eight stand alone modules, each containing a collection of useful methods and techniques and numerous illustrations and examples. These build into a complete set that enable participants to confidently address almost all situations requiring software measurement, from identifying information and measurements needs, through measurement definition and analysis design, to decision making, validation – and stopping measuring when it has served its purpose.
