Continued improvements in Canarys SEPG

A Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG) is an organization's focal point for software process improvement activities. (ref - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_Engineering_Process_Group).

When we say engineering, we generally think of building something. In the software industry we build software. And we build software in the same way as any other construction company will build a bridge or a skyscraper building. We all know that a very vital key to a successful development project is the processes that the team follows and how the processes evolve within a team,  an organization and within an industry altogether.

In Canarys, we have constantly endeavored process improvement for SEPG. It has always been a matter of high importance to us, to be able to abide by all possible quality standards to ensure smooth functioning and better transparency within our team.  ‘Quality is our Mantra’ as our tagline says, we have put in the best of our efforts to prove this literally.

Being a Canarian (going to be a pentagenarian soon smiley) it gives me immense pleasure when I say that we are doing (not overdoing or underdoing) our software process engineering in a way that follows the best practices of our industry and helps our employees to take informed and quick decisions at all the level of the organizational hierarchy. As we all know, it is quite easy to define the processes, but it becomes difficult when observing the practical day-to-day efforts of the group. Change is the key to success in SEPG. A conscious effort is always required to evaluate whether the existing processes need any alteration; even if it is a very small tweaking here and there. A change effort requires a supervisory force to start the change process and enhance the team’s ability to accept the change. The SEPG is a driving force for enabling the definition, conservation, and improvement of the software processes used within our organization. It communicates the vision of the organization in a manner that is realistic and provides supportable accomplishments, both individually and organizationally. The metrics it maintains provide the upshots that reinforce these new behaviors and values. In my opinion, Canarys SEPG is an amalgamation of “Working” and “Deliberate” models, by which internal consulting as well as deliberated approach, both are used on a case to case basis.   The following are some of the major activities which we perform inside the SEPG:

  • Attaining and maintaining the support from all levels of the management.
  • Assisting in software process assessments.
  • Supplementing line managers by providing a broad perspective of the improvement effort and helping them set internal team and customer expectations.
  • Enabling for trainings or continuing education related to process improvements.
  • Tracing and reporting on the status of organization-wide process improvement efforts.
  • Creation and preservation of process definitions, in collaboration with project managers and software engineers.
  • Maintenance of the process database.

With a strong SEPG in place, we have recognized many tangible and intangible benefits.
