Title: Comparison of usage of crowdsourcing in traditional and agile software development methodologies on the basis of effectiveness
Authors: Mr. Himanshu Pandey, Dr. Santosh Kumar, Dr. Vivek Kumar Singh, Mr. Waseem Ahmad
The authors here try to forecast the Effort in Person Months for developing Agile and the traditional way of software development including Waterfall Model, Spiral and Incremental approach. The comparison is made on the basis of considering both Agile and traditional software development methodologies in addition to the crowdsourcing paradigm applied to both approaches. First of all COCOMO II Model is applied on both approaches utilizing the crowdsourcing technique. The authors have determined that Agile development proves to be considerably economical when both techniques use crowdsourcing. The case study used here is Genomic Information Retrieval System (GIRS). First GIRS is developed using traditional SDLC methods. During its analysis, costing is done by the COCOMO II Model. This is done in accordance with the crowdsoursing used in parallel to the SDLC. The effort in Person Months (PM) is calculated. Then AGILE development methodology is used in the development of GIRS. Agile is used along with the crowdsourcing paradigm. As soon as the analysis phase is completed, COCOMO II forecasts the effort in PM and we compare the results of Effort and Cost of both the techniques. The Agile method is found to be both, less in cost and effort, thereby increasing the Effectiveness and Efficiency of the progression of Software development
