Business Value through Software Development Volume 54, Number 2, 2010
RD 54-2
Software is strategically central to all businesses today; thus, businesses must understand, measure, and manage the value provided by software development and delivery. Businesses must also be aware of the risks involved in developing software. This issue contains five papers on the topics of project portfolio management, team practices, software development processes, and risk identification and management. The issue also includes three non-topical papers. The first discusses enterprise data management in financial markets. The second describes improved data-detection techniques for tape storage. The last paper provides a survey of hardware designs for decimal arithmetic in computing systems.
