Achieving high software quality is a goal of every development organization. However, in order to achieve high quality, you must be able to measure and understand the level of quality you have today. Software quality is complex and difficult to define and measure on an ongoing basis. We’ll use the ISO/IEC 25010 standard model to define 8 dimensions of software quality, and suggest some readily-available metrics that can help you measure each one of them. This will help you identify where you stand and begin improving the quality of your software.
This white paper will discuss:
- Why is quality important – 5 negative effects of low-quality releases
- The 8 dimensions of software quality – and how to measure them
- How to achieve a holistic measurement of software quality
