    Aghabayli, Aytaj; Pfahl, Dietmar; Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan; Trendowicz, Adam (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The use of software analytics in software development companies has grown in the last years. Still, there is little support for such companies to obtain integrated insightful and actionable information at the right time. ...
  • Safe traffic sign recognition through data augmentation for autonomous vehicles software 

    Jöckel, Lisa; Kläs, Michael; Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Context: Since autonomous vehicles operate in an open context, their software components, including data-driven ones, have to reliably process inputs (e.g., obtained by cameras) in order to make safe decisions. A key ...
  • Success factors for effective process metrics operationalization in agile software development: a multiple case study 

    Ram, Prabhat; Rodríguez, Pilar; Oivo, Markku; Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Existing literature proposes success factors for establishing metrics programs. However, very few studies focus on factors that could ensure long-term use of metrics, and even fewer studies investigate such factors in the ...
  • A quality model for actionable analytics in rapid software development 

    Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan; Jedlitschka, Andreas; Guzmán, Liliana; Vollmer, Anna Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Accessing relevant data on the product, process, and usage perspectives of software as well as integrating and analyzing such data is crucial for getting reliable and timely actionable insights aimed at continuously managing ...
  • Reference architectures and Scrum: friends or foes? 

    Galster, Matthias; Angelov, Samuil; Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan; Tofan, Dan (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Software reference architectures provide templates and guidelines for designing systems in a particular domain. Companies use them to achieve interoperability of (parts of) their software, standardization, and faster ...
  • Data science: technologies for better software 

    Ebert, Christof; Heidrich, Jens; Martínez Fernández, Silverio Juan; Trendowicz, Adam (2019-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Data science is mandatory in today's business to capitalize on achievements and assets. This specifically holds for modern software development, where data science facilitates analyzing product, process, and usage and thus ...
  • HAFLoop: An architecture for supporting highly adaptive feedback loops in self-adaptive systems 

    Zavala Rodríguez, Edith Berenice; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Marco Gómez, Jordi; Berger, Christian (Elsevier, 2020-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Most of the current self-adaptive systems (SASs) rely on static feedback loops such as the IBM’s MAPE-K loop for managing their adaptation process. Static loops do not allow SASs to react to runtime events such as changing ...
  • Q-Rapids: Quality-Aware Rapid Software Development: an H2020 Project
