Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

IFPUG is pleased to announce the results of the world’s first certification exam for the Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) size measurement held at ISMA 8 in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Twenty exam participants were awarded the title of “Certified SNAP Practitioner.” This first class of certified practitioners joins the hundreds of Certified Function Point Specialists across the globe certified by the International Function Point Users Group.

The Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) provides a quantifiable measure for the Non-Functional Requirements (NFR) which allows organizations to build historical data that can be referenced to assist in decision making for the technical and/or quality aspects of applications. Non-functional requirements which until the advent of SNAP have not been consistently measureable, can contribute substantially to the effort required to bring software projects to market. The inability to measure non-functional size has been one the major reasons that many software projects are late or over budget.

The SNAP standard provides organizations using IFPUG measures with a unique competitive advantage to those using other software sizing methods which do not account for non-functional software size. The Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) Assessment Practices Manual is released under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License. IFPUG is the first international functional sizing standards organization to release a sizing standard under the Creative Commons License.
