Thanks for stopping by. My name is Nico Zazworka and I am a computer scientist. I received my MS and PhD from the University of Maryland, where I was a member of the Experimental Software Engineering Group at the Department of Computer Science.
I am now part of the Elsevier team, in the role of Director Product Management Analytics - helping product managers to become data-driven by deploying and using a shared enterprise analytics solution (Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target) on over 100 Elsevier products including ScienceDirect, Mendeley and Scopus. Our analyitcs solution has been referrered to by Adobe as the largest Adobe Analytics deployment in the world and helps product managers to improve their products rapidly with scientific methods.
Previously, I have been working at the Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering in College Park, Maryland.
My expertise and work resides in the following areas:
- Deploying Adobe Analytics and related tools on projects and accross projects, from elicitation of requirments aligning to business goals and strategies, to implementation & testing, and deployment of dashboard providing KPIs and insights.
- Helping organizations implementing Process Maturity Models (CMMI, SPICE, ISO etc.). in 2012, I consulted Keymind in implementing and achieving CMMI Levels 4 and 5.
- Development of tailored Software Measurement and Visualization Tools that support project management and process improvement.
- Evaluate how existing data sources, such as configuration management systems, can help to unobtrusively and quantitatively assess Process Performance and Conformance of software development processes.
- Understand the applicability and utility of the Technical Debt metaphor in software projects, as well as, evaluating the effectiveness of program analysis techniques to identify code and design debt.
- Evaluating how Code Smells and static analysis tools can help to predict defect and change prone code.
- Design efficient visualization techniques that help identifying Security Attacks.
- Bridge the gap between software measurement and Quality and Business Goals of organizations.
