CAST supports OMG’s Automated Function Point Standard

by

For the past 30 years, leaders in application development have struggled to find a cost-effective way to bring the benefits of function point analysis to their larger scale ADM outsourcing contracts. Why is this an issue? As the chemist John Grebe once said, “if you cannot measure it, you cannot control it.”

Function Point : CAST-Announces-Support-for-the-OMG-Automated-Function-Point-Standard

That’s why today, CAST is proud to announce our support for the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Automated Function Point (AFP) Standard. The standard enables wide scale adoption of function points for sizing applications to be embedded in all ADM outsourcing contracts, and signifies a game changing event that will propel function point counting from a cottage industry to a standard analytical practice.

Coupled with structural quality and risk measurement in CAST AIP, IT leaders can now see how many function points were added, enhanced, and deleted for a holistic measure of output from software development activity.

You can read more about the new OMG Automated Function Point specification in the press release we put out this morning.
