The Software Quality Assessment (SQA) is a solution for companies striving to measure and improve technical excellence. The SQA provides a holistic, unbiased and data-driven assessment, covering not only the quality of the software itself but also the quality of the development process, knowledge distribution and key contributors.

Knowledge Distribution

Focuses on evaluating the technical knowledge within a team or organisation.

The goal is to ensure that critical information and skills are not isolated, minimising knowledge loss and enabling smooth onboarding and efficient knowledge transfer amongst team members.

Test Automation

Assessing your maturity around test automation, this module highlights the importance of maintaining a low-risk testing environment that is both exhaustive and efficient.

Targeted at minimizing manual testing efforts and increasing release reliability by establishing a comprehensive, fast, and reliable automated testing suite.

Development Process Quality

Scrutinizes the effectiveness, safety, and traceability of changes from development to production.

By ensuring that changes are frequently and thoroughly tested and integrated in line with business requirements, the process aims to streamline and safeguard the development lifecycle.

Code Quality

Assesses the readability, understandability, and general robustness of the codebase.

By probing the complexity and evolution ease of core features, this module aspires to keep the system maintainable and comprehensible, ensuring long-term viability and minimizing technical debt.

Code Extensibility

Examines how effectively a codebase can accommodate the introduction of new features and parallel development across multiple teams.

By emphasizing coherent expression of business rules and ensuring that changes can be implemented and tested independently, the focus is on maintaining a flexible and scalable system.

Code Security

Take a critical look at potential threats and weaknesses in both proprietary and third-party code.

This module is focused on safeguarding the codebase and ensuring robust security postures, minimizing risk through proactive identification and mitigation of vulnerabilities.

Working with Codurance on the SQA was easy – the whole process was collaborative and very seamless. As a non-technical C-Suite Leader, the report and recommendations provided just the right level of detail to make key strategic decisions about the future roadmap of our software product. We’ll be looking to use the SQA during future acquisitions to ensure we understand the quality of inherited software products well in advance.
