Testing and In-house development

The growing risk of defects from increasingly complex in-house software is costing companies dearly, according to new research from IDC. Seven in 10 companies said their code base is more complex than in the last two years, and 72 percent said debugging software was “problematic”. The cost of fixing this costs medium to large firms on average between £2.5 million and £11 million every year, IDC estimates.

The use of best practices, an assessment of automated testing technology, as well as a consideration for process and organisational change, would help businesses improve testing and development. It is important that businesses understand the long term costs of poor quality software development, and invest properly early in the development cycle, said an IDC spokesperson.
