Software Quality in an Increasingly Agile World

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

For decades, software researchers have been chasing the goal of software quality through the development of rigorous and objective measurement frameworks and quality standards. However, in an increasingly agile world, this quest for a perfectly accurate and objective quantitative evaluation of software quality appears overrated and counter-productive in practice. In this context, we are investigating two complementary approaches to evaluating software quality, both of which are designed to take agility into account.
