What Is Cloud Storage, and How Are Innovative Companies Using It?

Where it once implied daydreaming, now it is the realm of innovative businesses and forward-thinking leaders. Some of the disadvantages include the risk to security and the potential of unauthorized access to data. Companies that Innovate with Cloud Storage.

Microeconomics and Risk Management in Decision Making for Software Development

Herding Cats

Microeconomics is applicable to the development is software systems. If we look at the discipline of software engineering, we see that the microeconomics branch of economics deals more with the types of decisions we need to make as software engineers or managers.

Basis of Estimating Software Development

Herding Cats

The estimating of software development is both straightforward and complex. Here are some resources that will provide guidance to produce credible software development estimates, in both traditional and agile domains.

Misunderstanding Making Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

The naturally occurring work effort in the development of a software feature - even if we've built the feature before - is an irreducible uncertainty. The risk is created when we have not accounted for this natural variances in our management plan for the project. April, 2010.

Estimating is a Learned Skill

Herding Cats

The primary purpose of software estimation is not to predict a project’s outcome; it is to determine whether a project’s targets are realistic enough to allow the project to be controlled to meet them ‒ Steve McConnell.

Monte Carlo Simulation

Herding Cats

Monte Carlo simulation on projects examines all paths through the network of activities or all possible states of the project for the duration, cost, and risk that create impacts on duration and cost. Flight software is always an issue where we work, so those ranges are wider even more.
