Metric for Measuring Software Power
The term “power” has been used to describe Software in Software community especially Software vendors. However, there has been no formal definition of Software power, nor has there been any scientific method of determining Software power. It is therefore the objective of this paper to examine the attributes of Software product with a view to determining how they are defined and measured and to formally define precisely Software power, and propose a metric for measuring Software power. We give a precise definition of Software power, and also propose a function oriented metric for measuring Software power.
