Launched in 2011 by IFPUG, and regularly updated since, the SNAP framework is intended to provide a quantifiable measure for the non-functional size of software. As it is a relatively new framework, there is limited comparative data to analyze for benchmarks. DCG wants to help the community build a repository of SNAP data and provide an ongoing analysis of the data.
If organizations using SNAP wish to participate in an industry-wide gathering of SNAP data, and are willing to send their data to DCG, we will scrub, store and analyze the data on their behalf. We will gather the data using the official SNAP data form from IFPUG. To submit your data in another format or if you have any questions, please email SNAPinfo@davidconsultinggroup.com to discuss.
In January and July of each year, DCG will publish data highlights on its website; however, the organizations directly involved in submitting their information will receive a full report of the data.
