Does your organization use Agile as an excuse to push more functionality through development? Do your application teams get a chance to refactor and re-architect regularly?
You are not alone. Industry research shows the average business application carries as much as $2 million in Technical Debt. Analysts at Gartner estimate industry IT debt at $500 billion—and on target to reach $1 trillion by 2015.
One of the analysts behind this estimate will be on hand for a webinar on Thursday, April 19th to explain the growing phenomenon. David Norton of Gartner Research will talk about the importance of Software Analysis & Measurement to manage your Technical Debt and how to:
- Measure debt continuously to control TCO of the application lifecycle
- Include debt measurement in project management and prioritization
- Help you explain the business value of debt control to executive stakeholders
