Nesma autumn conference : Are Metrics still needed in an Agile environment?

12/11/2015 @ 13:30 - 21:00


Are Metrics still needed in an Agile environment?

Are metrics still needed to support the IT organisation when applying an agile methodology? Do the related new strategies, approaches and/or technologies bring new control mechanism or budgeting practices? This conference will provide ideas and experiences that can help the community in (re-)organising their cost engineering practices. Not only success stories but also pitfalls and lessons learned in the transition from ‘traditional’ to this ‘ new’ development methodologies.

This event is free for Nesma and committee members. Non-members pay € 60,= for the conference (including the dinner).

Nesma still is the guard of one of the most important (ISO/IEC) certified standards for functional size measurement of software and for a long time, it was mainly concerned about the sizing aspect of software metrics. However, as the software industry slowly matures and software metrics are used more and more to support important business decisions, Nesma has chosen to adopt the slogan: ‘Nesma, more than just points’. The meaning of this is that while sizing (e.g. function points or other size measures) remains an important aspect of the use of software metrics, in practice it is actually the application of what people wish to do with the measured size that is of true importance to the industry.

Nesma wishes to provide objective and independent information on the use of software metrics in business areas like software project estimation, software benchmarking, outsourcing based on software metrics, productivity measurement and management, project control and sizing methods.

Nesma offers its members information and the possibility to exchange knowledge, ideas, models, data and research on the topics mentioned above with leading experts worldwide.
