    INES researchers Christina Chavez, Claudio Sant’Anna and Manoel Mendonça had a new project — “A Service for Assessing the Quality of Open Source Software projects for Adoption in Corporate Environments” — approved by FAPESB (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado da Bahia). The funding includes scholarships, equipment and books.

    This project comprises one of the new goals submitted to INES, Edital 02 — Quality Assessment in Open Source Software — in the context of the project “Models, Techniques and Tools for Software Evolution”.

    Abstract: In recent years, open source software (OSS) has brought a number of opportunities that can be exploited by different kinds of stakeholders, from companies and government agencies to researchers, developers and users in general. The adoption of a solution based on OSS by companies or government agencies can bring many benefits but also may pose risks to the business. Free software has significant characteristics in terms of product and process — not always explicitly documented or available from repositories — that can be critical to support feasibility studies and decisions about adopting or not the software.
    This project’s main goal is therefore to provide a service for evaluating OSS projects for general use, including the use in corporate environments. The service includes the assessment of the products and processes associated with OSS projects to provide information for potential applicants to adopt it.
