Issue 4, Summer 1999 .

Software managers! What are your goals?

Do you want to produce effective software solutions to your clients’ real business problems? Do you want to deliver those software solutions more quickly, more cheaply, more reliably and to higher quality? Do you need information and feedback about your software processes and products? Is your engineers’ time and effort better utilised for constructing software than collecting measurements? But you don’t have specialist software metrics staff or a centralised measurement function?

You need our new measurement programme support service –

The “Measurement Programme in a Box”

GIFPA, using clearly defined procedures agreed with you and tailored to your needs, will enable your software engineers and managers to identify their measurement requirements, construct a measurement strategy and collect meaningful data. All with minimal effect on project schedules and budgets. Measurements will be made on schedule, for agreed software projects or across your entire portfolio. GIFPA will store and analyse the data, report to specified audiences at agreed intervals and encourage them to identify and act on improvement opportunities.

The quantified information, insights and assistance we provide will:

Use Software Measurement Services’ expertise to enable your Information Systems and Technology professionals to focus on theirs.
