Productivity Tools and Software Engineering - overview

The research agenda of the Productivity Tools and Software Engineering group at IBM Research
- India focuses on improving software product and service quality throughout the life-cycle and
developing new techniques for mobile and cloud enablement of software and services. Our agenda
is driven specifically by the needs of the software services industry. Our research uses many core
techniques, such as program analysis, text analysis, and data mining. In addition to developing new
technologies that have a significant business impact, we strive for creating intellectual property and
make broader scientific impact by publishing our research in top conferences. Below we describe
our current research themes.
