The Value of Empirical Evidence for Practitioners and Researchers

July 17, 2017 no comments Posted in Análise de Dados

The empirical software engineering research community has two general aims: 1 To understand how software is actually developed and maintained; and 1 To understand what improvements should be made to software development and maintenance, and how those improvements should be implemented. Empirical software engineering research, therefore, is about both contemplation and action. It is a discipline which attempts to understand phenomena whilst at the same time trying to change those very phenomena (in order to improve them). And it is a discipline that, by definition, promotes empirical evidence as the primary source of reliable knowledge for achieving these two general aims.
