8 March Webinar: Measuring Agility in Aerospace

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 28 February, 2011 – IBM Chief Software Economist Walker Royce will discuss the benefits of continuous integration during the development process in a free hour-long webinar on 8 March.

The integration of systems, products and applications is where most of the differentiated value is in today’s competitive information marketplace. Integration challenges also represent the primary sources of uncertainty, complexity and cost of developing and maintaining systems. Resolving the significant uncertainties first through continuous integration is a well-established best practice that improves economic outcomes. To realize breakthrough economic gains, integration testing should precede unit testing.

In this webcast, attendees will learn:
• How doing integration before unit testing significantly reduces risk
• How to measure agility
• Six patterns to help transform from conventional engineering governance to economic governance

Royce is the author of three books: “Software Project Management, A Unified Framework” (1998); “The Economics of Software Development” (2009); and “Eureka! Discover and Enjoy the Hidden Power of the English Language” (Q2 2011). He has worked 16 years at TRW and 16 years at IBM/Rational.

The webinar will be moderated by Dick Price, IEEE Computer Society director of Sales & Marketing. During his 16-year publishing and marketing career with the IEEE, he has been instrumental in starting four magazines, including Computing in Science & Engineering, IEEE Pervasive Computing, IEEE Security & Privacy, and Computing Now. That familiarity with leading technical experts helped launch the Computer Society's successful webinars program.
