  • Coleman, Gerry; O'Connor, Rory V. (Elsevier, 2008)
    This paper presents the results of a study of how software process and software process improvement (SPI) is applied in actual practice in the software industry using the indigenous Irish software product industry as a ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Coleman, Gerry (2007)
    This paper presents the results of a Grounded Theory study of how Software Process Improvement (SPI) is applied in the practice of software development, focussing on what is actually happening in practice in the software ...
  • Clarke, Paul; Mesquida Calafat, Antoni Lluís; Ekert, Damjan; Ekstrom, J.J.; Gornostaja, Tatjana; Jovanovic, Milos; Johansen, Jørn; Mas, Antonia; Messnarz, Richard; Nájera Villar, Blanca; O'Connor, Alexander; O'Connor, Rory V.; Reiner, Michael; Sauberer, Gabriele; Schmitz, Klaus-Dirk; Yilmaz, Murat (Springer, 2016)
    The practice of software development has evolved considerably in recent decades, with new programming technologies, the affordability of hardware, pervasive internet access and mobile computing all contributing to the ...
  • Drury, Meghann L; O'Dwyer, Orla (World Scientific Publishing, 2013)
    This paper firstly explores the decision-making process in agile teams using scrum practices and secondly identifies factors that influence the decision-making process during the Sprint Planning and Daily Scrum Meetings. ...
  • Mora, Manuel; Raisinghani, Mahesh S.; O'Connor, Rory V.; Macías-Luévano, Jorge; Gelman, Ovsei (IGI Global, 2013)
    There is a rich amount of literature on services from Information Technology (IT) (Management view) and IT System Engineering (ITSE) (Engineering view) domains. However, such a variety has produced disparate views. ...
  • O'Riordan, Niamh; Acton, Thomas; Conboy, Kieran; Golden, Wilie (2012)
    The emergence and widespread adoption of agile methodologies is often explained by the need to improve time management in Information Systems Development (ISD). Indeed, a growing body of evidence supports the view ...
  • Li, Xi; Ventresque, Anthony; Stokes, Nicola; Thorburn, James; Murphy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Server consolidation is an important problem in any enterprise, where capital allocators (CAs) must approve any cost saving plans involving the acquisition or allocation of new assets and the decommissioning of inefficient ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Farragher, Linda (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 2000)
    Most modern programming languages are complex and feature rich. Whilst this is (sometimes) an advantage for industrial-strength applications, it complicates both language teaching and language research. We describe our ...
  • Bordeaux, Lucas; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer, 2012)
    When we encode constraints as Boolean formulas, a natural question is whether the encoding ensures a ”propagation completeness” property: is the basic unit propagation mechanism able to deduce all the literals that ...
  • Peters, Andrés A; Mason, Oliver; Middleton, Richard H (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    In this paper, we study a formation control scheme that achieves a tight formation in a 1D platoon. The scheme achieves constant inter-vehicle spacings (with no transient) for almost every vehicle pair whenever there ...
  • Sánchez-Gordón, Mary-Luz; O'Connor, Rory V.; Sanchez-Gordon, Sandra; Colomo-Palacios, Ricardo (Springer, 2016)
    The “best practices” of international software standards are considered important in improving the software process. The ISO/IEC 29110 standard defines lifecycle profiles for Very Small Entities (VSEs) and VSEs have ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2011)
    “Maturity model” (MM) (based on Crosby’s original idea) has been one of the main buzzwords over the past 20 years. A variety of MMs have been created in several application domains, from Software Engineering to Contract ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R. (EuroSPI, 2012)
    When dealing with improvements, organizations seek to find a break-even point for their applications as early as possible in order to maximize the return from their investment. However, in some cases such a strategy can ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Sanders, Martha H. (Springer-Verlag, 2013)
    This paper presents an overview of a pilot implementation of the ISO/IEC 29110 standard, with a group of very small software development companies based in Ireland. This paper may serve as guidance for both researchers ...
  • Portillo-Domínguez, Andrés Omar; Murphy, John; O'Sullivan, Patrick (2012)
    This paper offers an overview of the performance engineering field, including some of its latest challenges. Then, it briefly describes the research area of enhancing the performance of JEE systems through leveraging its ...
  • Hussain, Intesab; Djahel, Soufiene; Geneiatakis, Dimitris; Naït-Abdesselam, Farid (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a widely used protocol for voice and video communication in Internet architecture. Due to its open nature and the lack of robust security mechanisms, SIP is vulnerable to several ...
  • Portillo-Domínguez, Andrés Omar; Wang, Miao; Magoni, Damien; Perry, Philip; Murphy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Modern computer applications, especially at enterprise-level, are commonly deployed with a big number of clustered instances to achieve a higher system performance, in which case single machine based solutions are less ...
  • Butterfield, Andrew (2012)
    U (TP)2 is a theorem prover developed to support the Unifying Theories of Programming (UTP) framework. Its primary design goal was to support the higher-order logic, alphabets, equational reasoning and \programs as ...
  • Coyle, Sharon; Conboy, Kieran; Acton, Thomas (ACIS, 2011)
    The importance of effective decision making in organisations has been well documented. Groups are often formed in order to collaborate skills and information and assist with decision-making. Despite the many benefits associated ...
  • Heras, Federico; Morgado, Antonio; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer, 2012)
    This paper presents several ways to compute lower and upper bounds for MaxSAT based on calling a complete SAT solver. Preliminary results indicate that (i) the bounds are of high quality, (ii) the bounds can boost the ...
