Relationship between Spago4Q project and Universities

Spago4Q project team has always been collaborating with universities and individual students. We believe that open source software can and should be used in the educational field, not because it is free of cost, but because it can be a formative base for the Information Technology professionals of tomorrow. Spago4Q team has always been glad to take part in workshops and presentations at universities, and to support training stages and students' master degree thesis.

Here below, we mention some consolidated relationships between Spago4Q team and some universities or individual professors, significant results and demonstrations at different universities and master degree courses. In addition, many other collaborations are active thanks to SpagoBI project, representing the core of Spago4Q platform.

University of Padua, Italy

Faculty of Statistics
Degree in Statistics and Information Technology

The collaboration with this faculty has given several important results, such as:

  • A degree thesis at Statistics and Information Technology degree course:
    • Open Source software quality analysis environment by Patrick Masiero (download here).

Faculty of Information Engineering
Post-graduate degree in Innovation and Project Management

Since 2005 Engineering Group has been collaborating with prof. Moreno Muffatto presenting open source themes to the students attending the degree courses of Economy and Enterprise Management, Information Economy and presenting innovation and open source to those of the first-level master degree in Innovation and Project Management. The collaboration with this faculty has brought some important results, such as:

  • A post-graduate degree thesis at the Faculty of Information Engineering, Computer Science degree:
    • Aree di misura ed Indicatori per l'applicazione open source Spago4Q: estrazione dei dati per il monitoraggio del processo di sviluppo del software - by Nicola Salier (download here).

University of Milan, Italy

Since a long time, Engineering Group has been collaborating with the Department of Information Technologies of the University of Milan and with the Didactic and Research Pole of Crema, through prof. Ernesto Damiani. This collaboration has given rise to:

  • didactic collaboration, presentations and demonstrations on open source, training services and collaboration for graduation thesis
  • joint activities within the OW2 BI Initiative
  • joint research activities, through the SESAR research group
  • contribution to the development of Spago4Q platform and consulting services in the definition of the reference model

The collaboration with this faculty has brought some further important results, such as:
  • A degree thesis in Information Society Technologies at the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences:
    • Implementazione del Modello QEST nD in Spago4Q by Mauro Regoli (download here)
  • A degree thesis in Computer Science at the Faculty of Computer Science:
    • Report Generator per Dati di Processo basato su .Net - by Salvatore Camodeca (download here).

Presentations and demonstrations at degree and post-graduate degree courses

The theme of Open Source and Software Quality have been presented many times in the last years. In addition to the regular presentations at the above-mentioned universities, with which Engineering Group regularly collaborates, we can mention:

  • December 2012 - University of Milan - Department of Information technology - The latest in the open source SpagoWorld initiative and Engineering Group's research activities
  • December 2010 - University of Milan - Department of Information technology - Business Process Engineering - Engineering Group's experience
  • May 2010 - University of Padua - Faculty of Engineering - Course on Economics of Information - Open Source for Quality
  • March 2010 - University of Perugia - Faculty of Engineering - Seminar on Open Source for the Quality of Software, Engineering Group’s approach
