IFPUG推出首款創新工場! 獎第二屆會議ISMA

PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ, 九月 27, 2007 -首次, the winner of the annual 創新工場! 獎項在國際功能點用戶組 (IFPUG)的第二屆國際軟件測試 & 分析 (ISMA) 會議和研討會, 9月9日至十四日火烈鳥酒店和賭場在拉斯維加斯舉行, 內華達.

The First Annual 創新工場! Award, sponsored by the David Consulting Group, was presented to Tania Skinner from the Intel Corporation. She was awarded the honor after an objective panel voted on numerous papers prior to the conference.

The Second Annual ISMA Conference and Fall Workshops began with three days of educational workshops that help prepare IFPUG members for the Certified Function Point Specialist and Certified Software Measurement Specialist exams, which were also given on site. These sessions were followed by a three-day software measurement and analysis conference offering presentations in the following tracks: 功能點, 度量, 流程改進, Data Analysis, Project Management and Software Estimation.

Other highlights of the ISMA conference included keynote speeches from industry innovators. Stephen Few, author of 顯示我的號碼: Designing Tables and Graphs to EnlightenInformation Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data, exposed the problems of poor data presentation through a host of typical examples, while also showing alternate examples of clear, accurate and efficient communication. 博士. Rick Hefner, Director of Process Management for Northrop Grumman Corporation, provided in-depth discussion on measurement strategies in the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) on Thursday, followed by a second featured speaker, Sabrina Jackson. Although not affiliated with the software industry, Jackson ‘s inspiring presentation entitled True Colors about the importance of developing people skills drew waves of laughter from the audience and proved to be one of the most well-attended sessions of the conference.

“ According to our attendees, Las Vegas was a very popular destination, offering us all a chance to learn about changes in our industry and also a place to network and have fun as well,” said IFPUG President Mauricio Aguiar. “I also congratulate Tania on winning the first創新工場! Award. We commend her on a job well done.”

Attendees visited exhibits from Charismatek Software Metrics, 鴻諮詢集團, Prometric and Q/P Management Group during Wednesday’s Vendor Fair. International sponsors of ISMA also included Charismatek Software Metrics, 鴻諮詢集團, Q/P Management Group and TI Métricas.
