F14-11/5: RoundTable: Metrics in Software Testing

Track/s: Leadership

The ever-increasing complexity of today’s software in conjunction with higher expectations for more reliable releases in the shortest time possible has driven software testing requirements to an all-time high. Doing more with less is absolutely the new reality. One of the best ways to streamline a process or shorten a development cycle is to pinpoint the problem areas in order to avoid making the same mistake twice. Enter software testing metrics. Unfortunately, testing metrics, similar to every other type of “metric” in use today carries with it the baggage of going through the motions without analyzing the results to gain something for the effort of calculating the metric. Test metrics can serve as important indicators of the efficiency and effectiveness of a software testing process. Analysis of defined metrics helps identify areas for improvement and drive appropriate adjustments ultimately resulting in a pattern of continuous improvement. Join us for a discussion on software testing metrics in use today with a focus on selecting those that will best meet your needs.
