In this week's IT Software Quality Report podcast, Bob Martin, a principal engineer at MITRE Systems, discusses with CISQ Director, Dr. Bill Curtis, how the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other organizations are using software quality metrics to better judge the software and services offered by vendors and contractors.
