NASCIO Midyear Conference is April 22-24, 2018 in Baltimore, MD.
CISQ submitted a presentation proposal:
Over the past couple of years, State and Federal IT leaders have drastically improved practices to secure and modernize IT systems to improve services and reduce risk. Procurement teams are refining software quality requirements in contracts for new applications and code entered into production. New State laws such as Texas HB 3275 and Mississippi HB 999 mandate IT quality reporting rolling up to various levels of government starting in early 2018.
Until now, the software quality characteristics of security, maintainability, reliability, performance efficiency, and resiliency, as measured by IT teams with mature software engineering practices, have been defined subjectively in IT reporting, contracts and SLAs. There was no standard definition of each measure.
The Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) would like brief NASCIO members on new standards for reporting software quality and risk. A new standard has just been announced for automating the measurement of Technical Debt.
