Optimize Applications Quality

Thanks to the BuSI and a research center partnership

Risk management by BuSI

Everybody in charge of business critical applications (CIO, development manager, application owner) must one day or another deal with its quality measurement; resilience, capacity to support change, robustness, performance are among the most stressing demands these people have to deal with everyday. Measuring to identify root causes of issues, objectivizing and controlling quality norms from outsourcers, identifying architecture defects preventing applications to support bigger usage and base-lining applications to allow externalization are real challenges for the IT management teams.

Have you ever faced situations where measuring software delivery quality is key? Ever wondered how good or risky is an application? Ever feeling nervous and stressed about the business consequences of IT failure? How would you feel with hundreds of end users blocked after a major software disruption?

To address these concerns, BuSI has develop a ‘software armed’ consulting offer to help you avoiding the worst while mitigating risks potentially caused by your applications portfolio and increasing productivity.
