This presentation discusses statistical findings obtained from a survey of the state of software development practices within Northern Ireland (NI). The survey was developed and conducted by staff from the Centre for Software Process Technologies (CSPT). The CSPT is concerned with the engineering of high quality software. An important function of the CSPT is to provide infrastructural support to the NI software industry. CSPT was established in September 2002 and is jointly funded by Invest Northern Ireland (INI) – a regional economic development agency, and the University of Ulster. A significant part of the centre’s remit is concerned with empirical research in the area of software processes and with knowledge transfer objectives in relation to software process improvement. In order that the CSPT can play an active role in helping software organizations to improve their development processes, the centre needed to understand the current state of software development practice within NI.
