Title: "Analytics in Software Development Projects: The Journey from Research to Practice"
Over the past two decades, we have witnessed a drastic increase in the development of metrics and analytical frameworks to study technical, social, organizational and socio-technical aspects of large scale software development projects. Despite the valuable insights that these new approaches provide, their application in practice has faced significant challenges. In this talk, I discuss these challenges and several examples of how those challenges were overcome to provide tangible benefits to software project outcomes. The examples cover geographically distributed software projects from startups to large-multinationals and across several industries.
