Software Quality is Critical, but CIOs Can’t Monitor or Control It.

Our world runs on software, and quality is a critical aspect of any software system. However, due to the high complexity and velocity of modern development programs, organizations and senior management have very low visibility over software quality. Change Advisory Boards and old-school Quality Management systems are no match for this fast-paced environment.

The 2018 Software Intelligence Report found only 51% of CIOs have “some” knowledge of the quality of their software portfolio. With countless code changes, millions of data points, and hundreds of high-velocity development teams, numerous risks may not be monitored, and cannot be controlled at the organizational level.

Every CIO wants to be proud of their Quality Centric Organization, but without clear, standardized data on software quality, CIOs simply cannot make decisions and steer the organization towards consistently high quality.

Key Challenges of Modern CIOs.

CIOs and business technology executives have the following key challenges with respect to managing and improving software quality across the enterprise:

End User / Customer Experience .

CIOs must know, across the software portfolio, which systems are succeeding or failing at satisfying customer needs and business requirements, to ensure a positive ROI on R&D investments.

Digital Transformation .

Digital transformation initiatives are strategic for the business. Ensuring quality across a digital transformation initiative, identifying systemic issues on time and remediating them, are critical to success.

Cross-Organizational Visibility and Control .

CIOs need clear metrics, available and understood across the enterprise, indicating the current quality level of software systems and the efforts being made to improve quality.

Automated Change Advisory Process.

Old-school Change Advisory Boards (CAB) are a bottleneck to delivery velocity. Automation and insights are needed to transform the CAB into a fast-paced, automated, Data-Driven Change Advisory system.

Cost Saving.

Software testing makes up 27% of IT budgets, and yet the Cost of Poor Software Quality (CPSQ) in the USA alone is $2.84 Trillion per year, indicating low ROI of investments in quality. Better data and control can help reduce investments in testing while actually improving quality.
