EXPECTED IMPACT AND EXPERIENCE

MemoLuX Ltd is steadily growing and is managing larger and larger projects. While introducing best practices the company will effectively manage a higher number of projects in the future by reusing lessons learned. MemoLuX will benefit from having better control of the software development process, from the achievement of a quantitative view of the production process, from the higher credibility among Hungarian and EU customers through improved Bootstrap maturity profile and an increased level of compliance with ISO 9001.

ISCN runs a dissemination business line including an annual conference about process improvement, a WWW process improvement newsbox, as well as training's (a European training initiative called PICO - Process Improvement Combined approach), and the PIE results will be broadly disseminated through these means. Further ISCN establishes a set of metrics to be used in MemoLuX allowing to conclude the experience in quantitative terms. In addition ISCN is associated partner in an ESSI dissemination action EPIC which organises a number of Internet based video workshops connecting distributed local workshops together. One topic discussed is concerning banking and the Hungarian PIE PASS will be included in these workshops.
