Show 29 begins a two part interview with Murali Chemuturi on the topic of estimation.  This is not the first time the Cast has examined estimation however I think you will find that Murali’s thoughts will add your knowledge base and might even spark heated debate.  


 Mr. Chemuturi has over thirty four years of total experience out of which about fourteen years have been spent in the field of information technology.  Has worked at TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES for five and half years and at ELECTRONICS COROPORATION OF INDIA LIMITED for nineteen. Murali also worked at SATYAM COMPUTER SERVICES LTD., METAMOR GLOBAL SOLUTIONS LTD. and Vistaar eBusinesses Pvt Ltd.  His CV includes numerous publications and he is the author of an upcoming book on estimation which I will review on a future Software Measurement and Process Cast. 


Mr. Chemuturi can be contacted by email at or by phone at 91-40-27220771, 91-0-988-501-9461 and in the USA at 1- 347-394-3138.  His web site can be found at
