How Microsoft IT Manages Vendor Development Projects

Date Added: Jul 2009
Format: Podcast

When managing vendor development projects, lack of metrics, or the dependence on a single metric, can lead to surprises by the project's end. This podcast will help learn about the tracking system that Microsoft IT uses to manage software development projects from a client perspective. Agile Cross IT Engineering (AXE) generates telling project metrics from a small amount of provided data. The system provides immediate project feedback, and supports overall project and vendor analysis.
