Ness Engineering Effectiveness

Understanding the effectiveness of your software development is an important yet complex initiative that many businesses fail to address; few organizations know where to begin to measure and optimize their engineering effectiveness.




The Ness Engineering Effectiveness Model Metrics
Ness will help you standardize, normalize and automate key performance indicators throughout your ALM. Some of the key metrics include:

  • Productivity Net of Technical and Functional Debt
  • Scope Variance
  • Schedule Variance
  • Defect Density
  • Defect Leakage
  • Automated Test %
  • Cyclomatic Complexity
  • Architectural Reuse
  • Programming Practice Compliance

Engineering Effectiveness Tools
Many software development organizations struggle with how to best assess their engineering effectiveness, and to create a concrete picture of that effectiveness.
Ness has developed proprietary and collaborative approaches to measuring and optimizing software development organizations, and to implementing comprehensive metrics programs aligned to organizations’ business objectives.

Ness Software Product Labs’ Engineering Effectiveness ModelSM—a proprietary, collaborative approach to measuring and optimizing your software development practice—creates better visibility into your software development organization, enabling you to achieve more, higher-quality deliverables without increasing your budget.

The Ness Engineering Effectiveness Model begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your application lifecycle process, technology architecture, and quality automation that is designed to measure and identify the best opportunities for improvement. The right tools and metrics enable you to properly assess your development practices to ensure you’re delivering the best possible product to your customers.

Optimizing your capabilities enables you to deliver:

  • More innovative features in each release
  • More frequent releases
  • Improved quality for end users
  • Increased customer satisfaction
  • Increased employee satisfaction

The Ness Engineering Effectiveness Model has been proven to reduce cycle time, improve cost-effectiveness, and produce fewer defects post-release. The Model is built around three key elements that contribute to engineering effectiveness: Process Optimization, Technology Optimization, and Quality Optimization.


Process Optimization
Ness has developed a set of qualitative and quantitative measures to evaluate your software development methodology and systems. Implementing recommendations based on this evaluation process can significantly improve your time-to-market, number of features delivered, and overall product quality.

Technology Optimization
Technical debt and other architectural issues can negatively impact your productivity and consume resources with maintaining legacy code rather than fielding customer requests. Ness’ assessment determines the best opportunities for refactoring your code so you can allocate resources to enhancing your product.

Quality Optimization
Ensuring appropriate defect prevention and remediation has the greatest direct impact on your quality and release predictability. Ness conducts a quality assessment and creates an action plan to optimize quality effectiveness.
