2016 IT CONFERENCE

ISBSG and ICEAA Southern California co-organised the 2016 IT Confidence Conference

 In 2013, ISBSG organized a one-day conference aligned with the traditional yearly workshop. The name of the conference, IT Confidence, was chosen to stress the fact that the IT industry could actually gain more confidence to deliver successful projects when using mature measurement, estimating techniques and relevant historical data.

Since 2013 (Rio de Janeiro), 2 additional successful events were organized: 2014 (Tokyo) and 2015 (Florence). In 2016, the IT Confidence was organized together with the Southern California Chapter of the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association (ICEAA) in Los Angeles. ISBSG Gold member Galorath was the host of the event. Visit the 2016 IT Confidence Conference website.
