Technical Debt: CISQ Releases New Standard to Define and Measure Technical Debt

by

Technical Debt standards have been debated for many years.  And now CISQ (Consortium for IT Software Quality) has released standard that not only measures by automates technical debt calculation in complex software systems.  The Technical Debt Standard will be introduced by Dr. Bill Curtis, chief scientist for CISQ and CAST research labs.  Dr. Curtis explains how the standard was composed and how it’s being used to bridge communications between IT and the business. “The effects from Technical Debt can hinder innovation and put businesses at unacceptable levels of risk, including high IT maintenance costs, outages, breaches, and lost business opportunities.”

Learn more about the CISQ standard on January 16.

  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.
