Share results is a special
feature that allows the companies to compare results against each other. The
comparisons are based on a 6-month analysis (productivity+quality) of the average
developer. Before getting the information from the other companies you have
to publish your company's information, which will be valid for 30 days. After
this period expires you will have to publish your results again.
Share results needs an internet
connection (direct or via proxy server) capable of navigating the web. Internet
Explorer must be properly configured because the connection parameters are taken
from it (if you can navigate the web using Internet Explorer you are ready to
use this feature).
Which information is
- The SAP installation
number of your SAP system, used as the key that uniquely identifies your information.
This number is saved encrypted and it is invisible for other users.
- The company name informed
by you on the initial Share results screen.
- The rest of the information
provided by you on the initial Share results screen.
- The 6-month analysis
of the average developer (not developer by developer).
How a fair comparison
- Because the average of
developers is compared, this ensures that you can compare a 30-developer company
with a 4-developer company (the productivity will be comparable).
- Because the productivity
template that companies use is the same. This can be achieved because the
default productivity template used to perform the analyses is encrypted (it
can be copied but not modified by the user), and also because the application
will check for a newer version of this template and download it if necessary.
