Software Measurement and Benchmarking

QSM helps defense and intelligence agencies force-multiply their software efforts.

Software Measurement and Benchmarking

Designed for: Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) organizations from program/project office level to major oversight offices.

While certainly not a new concept, organizations continue to become increasingly aware of the value their own data presents for gaining insight to their software and IT acquisition performance. With the availability of data at an all-time high, how can an organization best approach leveraging their data at an appropriate investment level? QSM experts are passionate about applying dynamic solutions to organizations who want to establish or improve their data-driven decision making and management. We offer full-scope strategic planning and direct support options including appropriate software metrics identification, collection and organization that will take your organization to the next level of software data measurement. Additionally, our experts are highly experienced in getting the most value out of your data by conducting benchmarking services that provide insights to your organizational performance against a myriad of trends and data sources, including our QSM database, which is the largest validated software data repository in the world. Our benchmarking can also be used to support annual or other incremental reporting that demonstrates the performance of a specified area or the organization as a whole.
