  • Meade, Anne (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Parallelising serial software systems presents many challenges. In particular, the task of decomposing large, data-intensive applications for execution on distributed architectures is described in the literature as ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul (University of Limerick, 2014)
    With the advent of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), organizations tend to use service-based applications (SBAs) that are dynamic, distributed, and ubiquitous. In recent years, SBAs have become the state of the art ...
  • Abid, Saad bin (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Feature dependency is a kind of feature interaction which can be observed in the features that realize the functionality of a software product, and particularly in the features of Software Product Lines (SPLs). In feature ...
  • Pasquale, Liliana; Ghezzi, Carlo; Menghi, Claudio; Tsigkanos, Christos; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Adaptive security systems aim to protect valuable assets in the face of changes in their operational environment. They do so by monitoring and analysing this environment, and deploying security functions that satisfy ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Crowdsourcing is an emerging and promising approach which involves delegating a variety of tasks to an unknown workforce— the crowd. Crowdsourcing has been applied quite successfully in various contexts from basic tasks ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Musial, Mariusz; Stol, Klaas-Jan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Many professions evolve from their origins as a creative craft process to a more product-centered industrial process. Software development is on such an evolutionary trajectory. A major step in this evolution is the ...
  • Mair, Matthias; Herold, Sebastian; Rausch, Andreas (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Uncontrolled software architecture erosion can lead to a de- gradation of the quality of a software system. It is hence of great importance to repair erosion e ciently. Refactor- ings can help to systematically reverse ...
  • Monasor, Miguel J; Noll, John; Vizcaíno, Aurora; Piattini, Mario; Beecham, Sarah (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Context: One of the chief challenges of Global Software Development (GSD) is for globally, culturally and linguistically diverse team members to communicate effectively. Failing to meet this challenge can lead to ...
  • Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    There was a time when researching software processes meant just that – we were interested in making sure that the process for software development was effective. We did not really have to worry about the domains in which ...
  • O'Leary, Pádraig; Noll, John; Richardson, Ita (Springer, 2013)
    Attempts to extend process management to support pathways in the health domain have not been as successful as workflow for routine business processes. In part this is due to the dynamic nature of knowledge-intensive work ...
  • O'Leary, Pádraig; Buckley, Patrick; Richardson, Ita (Springer, 2013)
    Connected Health involves the use of ICT to improve healthcare quality and outcomes. In a connected heath environment, stakeholders can struggle to make best use of this information coming from a variety of sources. Given ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Avgeriou, Paris; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Lucas, Yan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    A number of organizations have adopted Open Source Software (OSS) development practices to support or augment their software development processes, a phenomenon frequently referred to as Inner Source. However the adoption ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Stol, Klaas-Jan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Throughout its short history, software development has been characterized by harmful disconnects between important activities e.g., planning, development and implementation. The problem is further exacerbated by the ...
  • Lane, Stephen; Gu, Qing; Lago, Patricia; Richardson, Ita (Springer-Verlag, 2013)
    Service-oriented computing is a promising computing paradigm which facilitates the composition of loosely coupled and adaptable service- based applications. Unfortunately, this new paradigm does not lend itself easily ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Kuzmickaja, Iiona; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Abrahamsson, Pekka; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microblogging is one of the popular forms of social media that has quickly permeated both enterprise and open source communities. However, how exactly open source communities can leverage microblogging is not yet ...
  • Kuhrmann, Marco; Beecham, Sarah (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    When it comes to software process improvement (SPI), process engineers look for SPI methods to support process analysis, design, realization, deployment, and management. Although a number of di erent SPI methods and ...
  • Rong, Guoping; Boehm, Barry; Kuhrmann, Marco; Tian, Evelyn; Lian, Shijun; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    As an approach to develop suitable development processes for software projects, Software Process Selection, Tailoring and Composition (SP-STC) attract lots of attention from both industry and academia. However, without ...
  • García-Galán, Jesús; Pasquale, Liliana; Trinidad, Pablo; Ruiz-Cortés, Antonio (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Multi-tenancy is a key pillar of cloud services. It allows dif- ferent tenants to share computing resources transparently and, at the same time, guarantees substantial cost savings for the providers. However, from a ...
  • da Silva, Ivonei Freitas; da Mota Silveira Neto, Paulo Anselmo; O'Leary, Pádraig; de Almeida, Eduardo Santana; de Lemos Meira, Silvio Romero (Elsevier, 2014)
    Software Product Line (SPL) engineering has been applied in several domains, especially in large-scale software development. Given the benefits experienced and reported, SPL engineering has increasingly garnered ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Crowdsourcing is an emerging form of ‘outsourcing’ software development. While there has been considerable research in the area of crowdsourcing in general, very little research has focused specifically on how crowdsourcing ...
