  • Conflicts and synergies among quality requirements 

    Boehm, Barry; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Analyses of the interactions among quality requirements (QRs) have often found that optimizing on one QR will cause serious problems with other QRs. As just one relevant example, one large project had an Integrated Product ...

  • A catalogue of reusable context model elements based on the i* framework 

    Abad, Karina; Pérez, Wilson; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The definition of the context of a system is one of the most relevant activities in the early phases of information systems engineering. It allows system engineers to narrow the system scope, by defining well established ...

    Abad, Karina; Pérez, Wilson; Carvallo Vega, Juan Pablo; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Several notations have been proposed in the last decades to support information system architecting, design and implementation. Although some of them have been widely adopted, their practical application remains cumbersome. ...
  • Data-driven elicitation, assessment and documentation of quality requirements in agile software development 

    Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Gómez Seoane, Cristina; Jedlitschka, Andreas; López Cuesta, Lidia; Martínez Fernández, Silverio; Oriol Hilari, Marc; Partanen, Jari (Springer, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Quality Requirements (QRs) are difficult to manage in agile software development. Given the pressure to deploy fast, quality concerns are often sacrificed for the sake of richer functionality. Besides, artefacts as user ...
  • An ontology-based framework for describing discoverable data services 

    Oriol Hilari, Xavier; Teniente López, Ernest (Springer, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Data-services are applications in charge of retrieving certain data when they are called. They are found in different communities such as the Internet Of Things, Cloud Computing, Big Data, etc. So, there is a real need to ...
