Software Intelligence: The Future of Mining Software Engineering Data
Mining software engineering data has emerged as a successful research direction over the past decade. This paper advocates Software Intelligence (SI) as the future of mining software engineering data, within modern software engineering research, practice, and education. The authors coin the name SI as an inspiration from the Business Intelligence (BI) field, which offers concepts and techniques to improve business decision making by using fact-based support systems. Similarly, SI offers software practitioners (Not just developers) up-to-date and pertinent information to support their daily decision-making processes.
