On Thursday, May 14th is the GUFPI ISMA Event in Rome, Italy, hosted by the Italian Software Metrics Association (www.gufpi-isma.org/).
Participate and enjoy three speeches:
New Standards for Automating Source Code Analysis of Structural Quality
Bill Curtis – Executive Director, Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ)
Prior to 2015 no international standards existed for measuring the internal, structural, non-functional quality of source code. The new ISO 25000 series standards are focused on measuring the external, behavioral quality of software. CISQ is filling this gap with standards for measuring the Reliability, Security, Performance Efficiency, and Maintainability of source code using violations of good architectural and coding practice as the basis for measurement. The shift from measuring structural attributes to measuring structural violations will be discussed as an important development in software measurement. The development, content, and potential uses of these measures will be described. The talk will end with a brief description of OMG/CISQ’s standard for Automated Function Points, and CISQ’s current work to develop specifications for measuring Automated Enhancement Function Points, Technical Debt, and Quality-Adjusted Productivity.
Governance of the Quality and FP Measurement
GSE (C. Sticca) – Customer Case History
GSE began in 2013 a process of redesigning its processes of ICT governance supplies going-on also on the redefinition of the qualitative and quantitative measurement parameters of their core technological assets. In this perspective have been introduced within the ALM process of GSE several gate measurement that allow to control both business risks induced by application, that the productivity of the development projects and application evolution. The use of standard metrics OMG measured through a platform leading-edge turns out to be the key to achieving transparency over the entire process and then allow a path of improvement.
Student Award 2014 – A Methodology to Improve the Energy Efficiency of Software
Marco Bessi – Cast Software Solution Delivery Consultant
The methodology to estimate the energy consumption of application software independent of the infrastructure on which the software is deployed. The methodology experimented makes a distinction between the usage of computational resources by an application and the unit energy consumption of each resource. In this way, usage resources and unit energy consumption can be measured independently. The methodology has been validated on a set of commonly used SAP transactions of a large multi-national company also obtaining a definition of energy consumption benchmarks for homogenous clusters of transactions or software applications. These metrics has been used to define classes of energy efficiency within each cluster, thus enabling the comparison of the energy efficiency of similar applications.
