Quality Measurement

Do you know the asset value of your IT systems? Do you know how much effort has been put into development so far and do you have any idea about the estimated maintenance cost? What do you know about your software quality?

Introduction

Measuring and assessing application software is a basic requirement in both IT decision making process and IT governance. IT governance primarily deals with guarding the interactions between business processes and IT management. The goal of governance is to assure that investments enhance primary business processes and risks associated with IT projects are mitigated. This requires standardized and normalized measurements such as key performance indicators, or KPI's, as used in financial planning.

G4 Dashboard meets market demands for application software related KPI's.

Quality measurements are necessary to make effective decisions in the major IT areas of legacy maintenance, system development, package implementation and outsourcing. The measurement and performance factors made available through G4 Dashboard not only fulfill this role, but also become an activator for software quality improvements. At governance level G4 Dashboard gives risk control its required maturity .
