演讲介绍

Cost and Data Issues facing Today’s Cybersecurity Analysts 

 Dan Galorath

 

Current studies imply that it is more costly to defend against a cybersecurity attack than to execute the attack. Studies also indicate that the typical breach is not detected until about 200 days after the breach. We need to understand the scope of security. Is it physical, computer, hardware, people, policy, or all of the above? This presentation evaluates three approaches; economic, industrial engineering, and parametric, to costing cyber security. The strengths and weaknesses of each approach are discussed.

 

validation information in the Mexican Reference Database Using the ISBSG Database 

Francisco Valdés-Souto

 

Since 2007 to date, in Mexico the use of functional size measurement has been promoted using the COSMIC standard (ISO / IEC 19761), COSMIC is a Mexican Standard (NMX-I-19761) and the functional size is considered a as a significant metric, understanding that it has three qualifiers defined by the Mexican Association of Software Metrics (AMMS) which acronym is BTT:

 

· BASIC because they are internationally generally accepted standards that allow the generation of derived metrics in the future;

 

·TRANSVERSAL because they serve to all economic actors and software development roles, to perform their functions (development, test, D&A, self-management, etc.) and transactions (buying and selling, bids, using, etc.);

 

· TRANSCENDENT because being basic is intended to allow comparison over time (forward and backward) and through different practices, technologies, which are changing.

 

One of the first steps of the AMMS was to create a reference database for the Mexican Software Development Industry, which was carried out through a public call for projects to be measured using COSMIC.

 

The approach to dimension the size of the collected projects was the use of the only approximation method that does not require a local calibration (EPCU approximation approach) according to the Expert guide of Early measurement and approach of the COSMIC method.

 

The reason for using size approximation was that the full requirements of all the projects could not be accessed, sometimes because they did not exist or because they were confidential.

 

Once the database was made up, with data from the project, effort and cost, as well as the size dimensioned using the EPCU approximation approach, the next question was whether the information was correct, although the approach method used has been broadly studied, how to know that the information obtained was correct?

 

Some of the studies carried out by ISBSG using the database of the Mexican Software Development Industry were replicated with two purposes:

 

1. Validate that the behavior was equivalent, to have a validation that the information obtained was not counter-intuitive

 

2. Provide formal reports to the agents of the Mexican Industry of Software development, which serve as references to mitigate the market inefficiency called information asymmetry.

 

This conference presents an analysis and comparison of some of the results obtained with the AMMS database and the studies carried out by ISBSG.

 

Agile Benchmarking in 2020 – Where Are We Today (and why you should care)? 

 Joe Schofield

 

At ISBSG’s first IT Confidence Conference 2013, I presented “Using Benchmarks to Accelerate Process Improvement.” This year’s presentation will provide a high-level “refresh” of how organizations can benefit from benchmarking. A simple list of recommended Do’s and Don’ts will be offered.

 

The primary focus of this presentation however, will be around experience-based and research-based agile benchmarking data. The experience-basis will incorporate client reactions and limitations to any agile data. The research-basis will trend industry-leading benchmarks including the use of agile methods, practices, and benefits since 2016 with an obvious focus on the most recent data. Insights and cautions will be shared for the attendee’s consideration. Finally, recommendations on agile-related measures and metrics will be provided.

 

Software Estimation: How to use ISBSG data for early software sizing? 

Alain Abran

 

In software estimation figuring out early the expected software size is the first critical step. This is quite a challenge when at estimation time the requirements are still fuzzy and incomplete!

 

This is even more challenging than to figure out total volume of an iceberg when only its tip is visible: for software, there is no physics law to help!

 

How can ISBSG data help? This presentation will present an overview of early software sizing techniques available to practitioners to tackle this software-iceberg challenge.

The 20M€ Tender Challenge, a Real Case Study of Estimation of a Very Big Agile Initiative 

Manuel Buitrago / Julian Gomez

 

We received an offer from a client that seemed impossible. They needed us to estimate the effort and the market-adjusted cost of a +20M€ agile development. This had to include a precise estimate of tests to be carried out and needed to be delivered within 10 days! Doesn’t it sound impossible to achieve?

 

This talk will be about what we did and how we successfully managed this challenge in just 10 days.

 

Since 2012 LedaMC has been participating in several international IT conferences presenting studies related to function point price vs rates behaviour in IT outsourced contracts, and productivity vs quality of software development projects.

 

This time, LedaMC will showcase a new presentation for a case study that involves estimation, testing and agile initiatives.

 

LedaMC is a Spanish consulting company helping big companies to manage their IT development costs, software productivity & quality and software vendors relationship. Thanks to its database with more than 60.000 projects, LedaMC is a reference in benchmarking studies and Estimating & Productivity models. 

 

Validation of Supplier Estimates Using COSMIC Method 

 Francisco Valdés-Souto

 

In the software development industry, it is well known that software development organizations (suppliers) need a better and formal estimation approaches in order to increase the success rate of software projects developed.

 

Considering a systematic view, any project requested by a customer needs to be validated in the estimation provided by the supplier, regardless of how formal or not the estimation method utilized was.

 

However, very often the customers do not know the information used by the suppliers to make their estimations. The software decision-makers must face a validation estimates problem where the more useful solution is used the expert judgment, with several problems related to it.

 

In this paper, a real case study is described where a validation estimates model was generated from a reference database based on the COSMIC method. The defined model using a density function helps the customer to define validation criteria considering the probability that the supplier estimate will be met according to an industry reference database.
