Reducing Costs While Increasing Quality
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.
