IT Project Analyst
To support the IT division in achieving its main objectives i.e. delivering key projects on time, scope, quality and costs, reducing our costs and developing our human capital, the Function Point Analysis (FPA) team is providing IT management with assessments on the projects performance and software development productivity trends.
To pursue these objectives, the FPA team has acquired a specific expertise i.e. Function Points technique (market recognized certification) to size software projects. The team also uses a series of indicators to provide internal clients (IT Management, Roadmap Managers, Project Leaders) with benchmark able measures. Those measures contribute to a better understanding of the main drivers affecting projects performance and ultimately help IT to act on them.
You will be member of this team and will act as guardian and promoter of the Function Point analysis and project performance measures, best practices, workflows, processes, discipline and techniques.
Your part of the deal:
- In that context and as a first step, you will be trained in a software sizing technique (Function Point counting) and apply it using project design documentation.
- You will progressively be involved in the project performance analysis - collecting project information liaising with the different project stakeholders such as the project leader and designers and will issue the ‘post-launch productivity benchmark report’, a key milestone of the post-launch project evaluation process.
- As the software measuring field is far from static, you will be looking into other measuring techniques like SNAP (Software Non-functional Assessment Process) to complement our Function Point sizing.
- You will aid in researching market trends on the KPI’s (key performance indicators) IT Management wants to follow.
- On top of this, you will be part of FPA team projects, continuously improving the team expertise, upgrading our internal tools and processes.
