One of the Ten Commandments of software development is: “(thou shalt) Find a flaw or bug as early as possible in the software development process.” Of course we all strive to do this. Of course no one wants unnecessary work and costs. We want to do it right the first time, do it right from the start. However, reality is that we fail to do so.
PointZERO® promises to help us improve. I quote: “PointZERO® is our full lifecycle approach to reduce and eliminate defects at the source, mitigate risks and decrease or avoid costs, increase productivity and speed up time to market without sacrificing quality. It is an umbrella vision encompassing a shift in approach that goes across the application lifecycle model to reach business success.
PointZERO® is a vision aimed at increasing business success by parallel and step-by-step improvement across the application lifecycle to shorten time to market, avoid and reduce cost, eliminate risk and reach a fit for purpose quality.”
Have we found the solution to an essential problem of software development? I am curious to find out.
