ABSTRACT
Over the past few years, metrics proposed in Impact columns such as Compound Average Growth Rate (CAGR) and software mileage have been applied in real life in organizations around the world. This issue's installment provides some examples and discusses the metrics' applicability and limitations.
INDEX TERMS
Software metrics, Software measurement, Software quality, Performance evaluation, software mileage, impact, metrics, compound annual growth rate
