How Automated Function Point Counting Made Portfolio Sizing & Assessment Possible at Broadridge


Michael Synn VP Enterprise Architecture, Broadridge.


This video is for IT leaders who seek objective, fact-based measurements to improve IT decision making. Broadridge Financial Solutions (Broadridge) Vice President of Enterprise Architecture shares why it uses automated function points. Broadridge struggled to objectively assess quality, cost and productivity across its vast IT portfolio of complex applications from various technologies. Yet, it also sought visibility to help support IT investment decisions. After realizing that manual function point counting is costly at scale, Broadridge turned to automated function point counting and software measurement. The Vice President of Enterprise Architecture explains how Broadridge's aggressive goals to analyze and count 300 applications in the first 12 months of its initiative are moving forward on target and delivering valuable insight into it's application portfolio.
