CISQ

Technical Debt standards have been debated for many years.  And now CISQ (Consortium for IT Software Quality) has released standard that not only measures by automates technical debt calculation in complex software systems.  The Technical Debt Standard will be introduced by Dr. Bill Curtis, chief scientist for CISQ and CAST research labs.  Dr. Curtis explains how the standard was composed and how it’s being used to bridge communications between IT and the business. “The effects from Technical Debt can hinder innovation and put businesses at unacceptable levels of risk, including high IT maintenance costs, outages, breaches, and lost business opportunities.”

Learn more about the CISQ standard on January 16.
