Register now to hear CAST SVP & Chief Scientist, Dr. Bill Curtis, discuss the current state of the IT software industry and it’s impact on your software risk management strategy.
Every week CIOs are seeing the staggering costs and business consequences of software problems in their critical applications. Consequently they are placing greater emphasis on their software risk management strategy.
Did the switch to Agile reduce defects and cost of ownership? Should we stick with our existing outsourcer? Is there a quality difference between domestic and offshore development? And, lastly, did we reduce our technical debt overall?
Traditionally these types of decisions were made by an in-house tech guru who -- through experience and gut-instinct -- dictated where their IT’s strategy and risk management were headed.
But now, CIOs have access to the single largest software structural quality dataset in the IT industry.
Join us on Thursday, May 15, 2014 as we examine the findings from the 2014 CRASH Report, looking at trends in technical debt, sourcing choices, development methods, and other factors that affect the structural software quality of business critical applications. CAST’s Appmarq Repository now encompasses over 1300 large IT applications written to support all sorts of enterprise business processes in 11 industry sectors such as finance, retail, telecommunications, and government.
Register now for our 30-minute webinar on the state of the IT Software Industry.
