Reducing Costs While Increasing Quality
Dr. Orna Raz (IBM Research – Haifa)
Non mission critical software systems have been challenged with conflicting requirements. On the one hand, these systems are becoming more and more complex and their quality is of paramount importance. On the other hand, to maintain competitiveness, there is a constant pressure to reduce the cost associated with developing such systems.
In this talk, I will raise some of the research questions stemming from these conflicting requirements. I will also present promising approaches to addressing the challenges of reduced costs while increasing quality that were explored at IBM Research.
Dr. Orna Raz holds a Ph.D degree in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA (2004) and a B.Sc degree in Computer Science from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology (1996). Orna is a researcher at the IBM Research Lab, Haifa, and has experience in the areas of software quality, fault tolerance, developer tools, code coverage, problem analysis and log exploration for complex systems. She has previously worked at Intel R&D labs in Haifa, ChipExpress, and NASA Ames.
As in previous years, the post-conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS).
