As self-organizing Agile and DevOps teams become more and more common in many organizations, management concerns are mounting. How do you know what is ready when, what the costs are and whether this is in proportion to the delivered value? Teams come with story point metrics, but these are subjective and can only be used at a team level, not suitable as input for management decisions.

CIOs have lost the overview, but they are expected to make a concrete contribution to the success of the organization by delivering business value at the lowest possible cost. Because the agile way-of-working is often more expensive in practice than traditional development, performance monitoring is crucial. Especially in the case where large parts of teams are delivered by suppliers, monitoring is crucial. These teams are often hired based on hourly rates, so there is no built-in incentive to become more productive and deliver better quality.

The Team Performance Suite services use world-leading technology to measure software quality against all current international standards and best practices to measure team output in a standardized way.
