A large global banking corporation works with a number of third-party vendors in order to complete key projects in an efficient manner. As a result, the company brought DCG on board to size and evaluate the work that had been completed to-date, resulting in an estimation of how long that piece of work should have taken. This engagement highlighted a typical business problem wherein projects are not meeting agreed-upon parameters. In cases such as these, Function Point Analysis proves to be a useful tool in measuring and evaluating software projects, providing solid data on how long a project should realistically take.
"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
- Mike Harris, DCG President
