In this article, we present and describe the JFAC Enterprise Software Licensing Pilot program activities during the 2016 fiscal year. During this period, JFAC provided limited quantities of Software Assurance tools to users in the DoD with an aim of evaluating how the use of these tools could improve the state of software assurance within the Department. The
Topic: Software Engineering
Software and Security engineering as a discipline is getting increased attention across the Department of Defense (DoD) as a mission enabler. Historically the DoD used an engineering approach that is independent from the type of product. Hardware and software then followed the same generic engineering principles. These principles focused on areas such as
Software reliability engineering represents a well-established set of techniques supporting specification and assessment of dependability aspects of software-based systems. Application of these techniques to security concerns could provide helpful assistance for software assurance efforts. * The rest of this article has not yet been converted to HTML. It
This paper summarizes the progress various industries have made in software productivity during the first decade of the 21st century. It begins by summarizing the productivity gains that occurred from 2000 and 2010 using data from 1,000 completed projects, none of which is over ten years old. Next, it categorizes the project data that were used to make
Software is inherent in today’s complex systems and is often the primary cost, schedule, and technical performance driver in Department of Defense (DoD) programs. For DoD mission critical systems, the associated software size, complexity, interdependencies, reliance-on for mission and safety critical functionality, and software assurance (high quality and
DeveloperWeek 2017 is the world’s largest developer expo and conference series with over 50 week-long events including the DeveloperWeek 2017 Conference & Expo (8,000 attendees), the DeveloperWeek Hackathon (1,000+ attendees), Official Hiring Mixer (1,000+ hirable developers and 50+ hiring companies), and dozens of city-wide partner
Engineering-based approaches to solutions are essential to managing the growing complexity and interconnectedness of today’s systems—as exemplified by cyber-physical systems, systems-of-systems, and the Internet of Things.
QCon empowers software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the developer community. A practitioner-driven conference, QCon is designed for technical team leads, architects, engineering directors, and project managers who influence innovation in their teams.
