Seminars by Mark Paulk, Author of CMM took place in Moscow the 25th through the 28th of October, 2004. Organized by the RUSSEE company, these seminars were called a key Russian technology industry event.
Mark Paulk, an acknowledged computer scientist and one of the leading developers of the Capability Maturity Model (CMM), presided over three separate sessions dedicated to the improvement of the software projects, processes and quality.
Alexey Filimonov, DataArt's CTO, attended the first and main session, Process Improvement and Standards in Software. This session targeted software and IT executives, managers, team leaders, developers, and product marketing and media professionals. The lecture covered the benefits of implementing standards in software development and maintenance, understanding the interdependencies between process improvement and company marketability, overall customer satisfaction and product quality.
