Transcript of CAST Benchmarking Services-OLD


Easily upload CB of applications from AIP into Appmarq database
Fill in quick survey to understand scope of the applications being benchmarked
Access to detailed benchmarking report per application
Possibility of benchmarking portfolio of applications at once
Access to overall industry trends with CRASH

Data remains 100% anonymous Why Appmarq? 6 What's Inside? Key Principles Key Benefits What does this all mean?

How good or bad are our metrics?

What is the industry standard? SAM-101
Software Analysis and Measurement Unique insight into software quality trends
Benchmarking of applications across industry & technology
Objective data gathered directly from the source code CAST Benchmarking Services
with Appmarq Four Unique Attributes What is Appmarq? 21 Application Source Code Analysis Application Quality Data
from CAST AIP Across Industies Across Technologies Across Development
Location Central Benchmarking
Database BENCHMARKING Benchmarking Industry
Trends Structural Quality Metrics: Appmarq contains application structural quality metrics as opposed to project/program metrics like cost, effort, and schedule. Automated Data Generation: Appmarq data are generated via objective automated analysis of applications as opposed to subjective surveys. Real-World Applications: Appmarq data is from real-world business applications currently in operation. Diverse Data Set: Appmarq contains structural quality data across a wide range of industry sectors, technologies, and geographies. Inside the Appmarq Repository Application Quality Characteristics: Robustness, Performance, Security, Changeability, Total Quality Index
Compliance Factors: Documentation, Architecture, Coding Standards
Size: Functional Size (function points), Technical Size (KLOC, No of Object, No of Artifacts)
Technology Stack: Front end, middle tier, backend
Rule Level Details: Violations per Rule for each Quality Characteristic
Object Level Details: Comment Rate, Cyclomatic Complexity Rate, etc.
Demographics: Industry, Functional domain, Extent of In-house/Outsourced, Extent of Onshore/Offshore, Vendors, Geography, No of Developers, Age of Application... Identify strengths, weaknesses, areas of improvement
Reduce Risks - Control Costs - Improve Productivity
Gain insight into Vendor Performance
Make application porfolio level decisions
Set specific individual and organizational goals 1,234 Applications
160 Companies
374 million lines of code Data
