The Estimation Center of Excellence: A Case Study

A global financial solutions provider was struggling with its limited capability to accurately predict and successfully manage its software delivery schedule. Based on DCG’s reputation in the field of software metrics, the company reached out for help.

DCG proposed the creation of an internal sizing and estimating Center of Excellence (CoE) following its Build, Operate, Transfer (BOT) approach. This approach starts with the creation of the CoE under the operation of DCG, with ownership transferred to the company over time.

To learn more about this engagement and the BOT approach, read our case study: DCG Establishes Estimation Center of Excellence for Global Financial Solutions Provider, Resulting in Increased Project Oversight and Improved Vendor Management.

The engagement is currently running successfully and the company has reported an improved ability to evaluate third party vendor bids based on software development efforts.

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
