Why measuring software quality is important
There could be a number of reasons why measuring software quality is important to you or your organisation. Key aspects are often maintainability and performance. To determine the maintainability measuring the quality of your software is the right idea, but what should we measure?
Am I in control?
An IT project is managed based on monitoring Progress and Budget. Boncode is adding a third one: monitoring on Software Quality. By monitoring Software Quality you will be in control of:
- The maintainability of your IT portfolio.
- Performance of your teams.
- The implemented architecture (important for future flexiblity).
- Performance of your supplier.
Be in control by asking Boncode to measure your applications using BonCat, Boncode’s proven code analysis tooling. The results and suggestions for improvement are presented in user friendly dashboards. OutSystems applications are measured and monitored by a dedicated version of BonCat. The OutSystems metrics are based on the Best Practices as defined by OutSystems and common practices and experiences from both customers and partners.
Facilitate your teams to be in control while using the Engineering Dashboard. This will speed up the refactory process and increases quality awareness.
Stay in control through measuring your applications continuously by using BonCat, including automated measurement and dashboards for presentation of results. Dashboards can be modified in line with your way of working.

Are we making the right decisions?
One of the most important carriers of your business strategy is your IT portfolio. To decide you need fact-based information:
- What to do with our legacy systems?
- Is our portfolio cloud ready?
- Do we implement the right architecture?
- Do we invest based on the right assumptions with regard to software quality?
During the Business Impact Analysis the involved IT systems will be analyzed in the context of your business strategy. Findings and risks are presented and validated with different stakeholders of your organization, both from a technical and business perspective. Make decisions based on facts.
