Data has become in one of the most important assets for organizations. Indeed, organizations have realized about this situation and nowadays, more and more companies which work intensively with data, have demonstrated a growing interest in assessing and improving the levels of data quality of their data resources. They know that they can get some valuable profits in order to achieve a better organizational performance.

Among these organizations are those whose main aim is to develop software products. As known, in a software development project a lot of data is generated and used through the different phase of the development. To have the sound data at the right time can be of vital importance to make decisions about the development in order to avoid errors and mistakes. These ones can cause the breaking up of the budget or of the agenda. In addition, with the introduction of the new business models, like Global Software Development into the current panorama, the necessary efforts have become harder since data coming from different sources must be coordinated, integrated and communicated. By getting data with adequate levels of quality, a development team can assure better software products.

With the first edition of this workshop we want to promote all the areas related to the application of data and information quality foundations to Software Development Process, by providing to the developers and researchers of Data Quality and Software Engineering areas with a forum where they can share their experiences on dealing with problems due to inadequate levels of quality of the software development data, and discuss about how to identify and improve the critical data. Moreover, we hope to identify during the workshop possible future lines related to the topic of the workshop.

The workshop will consists on small presentations of about 20 minutes of the accepted contributions. After the presentations, there will be some questions and debate.


All submitted papers will be reviewed by members of the Programme Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings by IEEE Computer Society Press. In addition, extended versions of the submitted papers will be further reviewed for possible publication in a special issue for International Journal of Information Quality (http://www.inderscience.com/ijiq).
