It’s One of the Top 10 Hurdles Facing Corporate CIO’s Today
One of the most dominant and serious complaints arising from the custom software development business is the inability for corporate IT departments to estimate with acceptable accuracy the cost, resources, and schedule required for a software development project. Resulting in overly optimistic project estimates that lead to significant cost overruns, schedule slippage, and in many cases project failure to meet business objectives. Leaving companies with few alternatives but to regroup and try again or worse – abandon the project altogether. And the business objectives these projects were designed to support are left unsupported with ramifications felt internally and externally.
What are some of the Typical Causes of Software Development Failure?
A significant part of software project failures can be attributed to a lack of understanding of the inner workings of the software development process and the impact of that process on parameters used in the schedule and cost estimates. At Maelstrom Solutions we understand proper preparation and diligence is key to a successful software project. There are several activities essential to successful project planning and acquisition, including risk assessment.
What’s the Iron Triangle and Why Should I Care?
The term “Iron Triangle” refers to the cost/scope/time parameters of a software development project, with quality being the center or result of the three parameters. Maelstrom Solutions consultants carefully balance all three parameters to ensure that each project is properly designed, developed, and delivered to meet all of the customer’s expectations. Quality project management and software development requires a methodical discovery process. This step ensures that the business objectives are in alignment with the software development effort and mitigates risk.
