GENERAL SESSION AGENDA

08:30am : Registration, Breakfast and Networking
08:45am : Progress toward an Engineering Discipline of Software Is “software engineering” really engineering? The term was coined in 1968 to call attention to problems with software production. Both theory and practice for software have evolved since then, but do we yet have a true engineering discipline?
10:00am : Enterprise Productivity Measurement A case study that illustrates one organization’s journey to better understand their application portfolio, development practices, vendor relationships, and IT spending.
11:00am : Software Analytics in Support of Upfront Project Estimation Software estimating is historically challenging as estimators are asked to generate accurate estimates based on inaccurate information.
11:45am : From Portfolio Stat to FITARA: It All Starts with Visibility As the federal government continues to search for ways to improve IT governance, it is clear that good governance starts with visibility.
12:15pm : Lunch (Networking)
