There is a saying “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it”. Hence the software engineers, quality assurance, managers and everyone else passionate about quality want to measure as many things as possible. We measure code coverage, number of tests, number of bugs, number of tests passed and failed, blocked tests, test execution, MTTR, MTBF and many other things. We investing so much time in measuring that we forget about improving. We measure for measuring, not noticing that our metrics are not actionable, and not investigable. They are vanity metric, they make us feel good, but do not mean anything. How to stop this vicious circle and measure what matter? Put the numbers into context and select metrics that not only indicating a problem but also lead to their solution. In this talk, we discuss specific problems and what can be measured to help to solve them. We will look at the useless numbers and learn how to turn them to the priceless pieces of information. This talk will be useful for the beginners and seasoned professionals as well as for their managers.
