Participating in TESNA

 

As a company developing software you can participate in the TESNA project. If you are using a code repository and a mail or a chat software for communication in the software team, the TESNA tool can help you  gain more insight into the current state and evolution of your software project. To conduct our analysis, we need access to the code repository in order to collect information on who is working on which part of the software package at various points of time. In addition, we need access to the chat/e-mail archive in order to gather the social network information of the developers. We also conduct interviews to make sure that the data from the different sources is reliable.
We have performed a detailed case study of a software company called Mendix (located in Rotterdam). The results have been very beneficial to the project, with the CEO highly recommending the tool.
