SNAP with DCG
Why use the Software Non-Functional Assessment Process (SNAP)? Do you want to:
- Better plan and estimate projects?
- Identify areas of process improvement?
- Quantify the impacts of the current non-functional strategies?
- Provide specific data when communicating non-functional issues?
Of course you do! And DCG can help. We’re available to conduct SNAP project or application counts, which measure the size of your software using SNAP points.
Even better, the SNAP framework can be used in conjunction with function points to provide insight into the delivery of projects and maintenance of applications, to assist in project estimating and to provide insights for the analysis of quality and productivity performance.
Already using SNAP? Then consider contributing to the SNAP Data Repository, which DCG is building to analyze SNAP data and provide benchmarks for performance and improvement. All those who share their data will receive a full analysis of all submitted data every January and June.
If you’re just looking for some SNAP-related information before you commit to anything, don’t worry, we have that too:
- SNAP Quick Reference Guide: A brief overview of SNAP
- Introducing SNAP: Information about how SNAP is used in practice.
- SNAP Assessment Practices Manual 2.2: The definitive manual about how to deploy SNAP.
If you still have questions, that’s okay too! We’re happy to help. Leave a comment below or shoot us an email; we’re happy to discuss all things SNAP!
