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.
