The Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) is a neutral, open forum in which customers and suppliers of IT application software can develop an industry-wide agenda of actions for improving IT software quality to reduce cost and business risk.
The objectives of the consortium are:
- Deploy best practices for governing software delivery with standard software quality metrics
- Refine the use of software quality metrics in supplier contracts
- Improve the non-functional, structural quality of software across industry in such areas as Reliability, Security, Performance, and Maintainability
- Advise, educate, and advocate the importance of IT application quality to industry and government
CISQ is co-sponsored by the Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University to combine their industry-leading strengths for dramatically improving software quality and measurement throughout industry and government.
Benefits of Sponsorship
Organizations that sponsor CISQ will lead the discussion in the industry about the metrics and methods for measuring software quality. These metrics and methods will be applied for vendor governance, software process improvement, productivity management and software risk management by the entire IT industry. Being a sponsor will signal your commitment to stay at the leading edge of software quality and productivity improvement.
Sponsors participate in standards definition and are acknowledged throughout the year as program sponsor on the CISQ website, during outreach events, and in presentations given to business and government leaders.
