Software Quality White Paper

How much quality do you want? Improving and measuring quality in application development

Jared Darling

Software quality is not determined by whether or not a box is checked. Quality starts at the beginning, when goals and outcomes are defined, a timeline is established, and resources are deployed, and continues throughout the entire application development process, from architecture and design straight through to deployment and round again with every new feature release.

Even if everyone understands this conceptually, when quality suffers, most teams try to improve it by adding tools or “best practices” like agile, automation, or DevOps. The problem is that a lot of teams have a tendency to jump to solutions before understanding the problem.

In this whitepaper you will find the most effective ways to improve and measure software quality, as well as some of the traps to avoid for your organization.
