Executive IT Decision Making: Am I Properly Measuring IT Risk?

by

Business decisions made in organizations today are moving away from a gut feeling and more towards data-driven, objective decision making. But what can IT do to prepare? For IT to have true visibility and scientific decision-making into their application development they need to have a view at the end product itself -- its stability, robustness, performance, security, and development velocity.

Developers are currently equipped with tools to help them "spell check" their pieces of the code, but the issue is they’re not looking at the larger picture -- the architectural and structural vulnerabilities that remain hidden in the complex, multi-tiered modern day frameworks. Imagine trying to understand a great novel's plot line and story structure by reading randomly ripped out pages from the book.

Our very own Konstantin Berger breaks down how an IT organization, equipped with an application portfolio analyzer like CAST’s AIP, can reduce its IT risk, produce higher quality applications, and help the business budget better based on application health, maintainability, and lifecycle. Hear what he has to say in the video below.

  This report describes the effects of different industrial factors on  structural quality. Structural quality differed across technologies with COBOL  applications generally having the lowest densities of critical weaknesses,  while JAVA-EE had the highest densities. While structural quality differed  slightly across industry segments, there was almost no effect from whether the  application was in- or outsourced, or whether it was produced on- or off-shore.  Large variations in the densities in critical weaknesses across applications  suggested the major factors in structural quality are more related to  conditions specific to each application.

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
