Enhancing software developer and user productivity

This project will investigate how software developers work with structured information. It will use information about that interaction to improve tools needed by developers. It will assess whether those tools improve the productivity of software developers. The project will also compare the access patterns of users of business intelligence applications to those of developers to determine if tools useful for developers might apply to more general knowledge workers. SAP may benefit from improved productivity of its developers and may benefit from ideas and knowledge to improve the applications it builds and deploys.
