On Wednesday, October 20 at 8:30 AM, our SVP, Chief Scientist, and Head of CAST Research Labs, Dr. Bill Curtis keynoted the TesTrek conference in Toronto, Canada.
Bill’s talk, “The Current State of IT Application Quality” covered key results from our latest study on application software quality from around the world – 288 applications from 75 companies in all major industry sectors including the public sector.
For years we’ve had software timeline and budget benchmarks. Now we have what are arguably, the most important data – the quality of the product produced.
The results Bill presented are from our Appmarq database – the only repository of software product quality metrics in the world. Appmarq makes benchmarking software quality a reality.
You can check out the results in the executive summary of the CAST Worldwide Application Quality Study – 2010.
Appmarq enables us to calculate the Technical Debt of a typical application in your portfolio. Here’s where you can read more about how we calculate Technical Debt.
