The Cost of Poor Software Quality in the US: 2020 Report

The Consortium for Information & Software Quality (CISQ) published its latest report on the impact of poor software quality in the US. 

The report estimates the economic impact at approximately $2.08 trillion. The 3 major contributing factors are:

  1. Operational software failures - accounting for $1.56 trillion (up from $1.275 trillion in 2018)
  2. Poor quality in legacy systems - $520 billion
  3. Unsuccessful IT and software projects - $260 billion

With tight software project deadlines, speed of defect resolution in development & test is a critical enabler. Thankfully, a range of capabilities are available to catch and fix software defects early; some of them, like LiveRecorder, helps engineers accelerate defect resolution and reduce lead times to get changes into the pipeline.
