Guest Webinar: Software Quality Metrics that Enable Velocity for Large IT


What does it mean to institute software quality and velocity in large IT set-ups? Many organizations have IT teams that diverge into two separate groups. One group works in the “Scrum” -- following the speed of the business, adapting new technologies, and pushing innovation. The second group is still in the traditional waterfall-driven operational and process management IT model. How would you address the velocity vs. quality tradeoff when bridging both opens the door for software issues?

This is a problem that application services providers have been grappling with for several years. The answers that leading practitioners have discovered may surprise you. Register now for our upcoming webinar to hear from guest speaker Diego LoGiudice, Forrester Research, Inc. VP and principal analyst, Dr. Bill Curtis, CAST Chief Scientist and the director of the Consortium for IT Software Quality, and Suresh Bala, vice president of application management at Wipro. Diego will explain the challenges of introducing velocity to traditional IT, and Suresh will describe an approach to improve responsiveness and quality of a large software estate by measuring the software asset.

Register for our webinar on Thursday, July 17, 10:30am EDT to hear our guest presenters talk about concrete steps you can take to noticeably increase your responsiveness to business stakeholders.

  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.
