CISQ is working on a standard measure of Technical Debt. Technical debt is a measure of software cost, effort, and risk due to defects remaining in code at release. Like financial debt, technical debt incurs interest over time in the form of extra effort and cost to maintain the software. Technical debt also represents the level of risk exposed to business due to the increased cost of ownership.
Completing the measure requires estimates of the time required to fix software weaknesses included in the definition of Technical Debt.
