Nowadays, in our digital world, most of the programs & projects are either directly or indirectly correlated to applications. Although the PPM discipline excels in managing schedules, resources, skills and budgets to deliver what’s expected, the end product or deliverable is very often related to applications. Objectives like “on time” or “on budget” are very important, but they can have little to do with the ultimate desired outcome – a high quality application that meets the needs of the business. Measuring and monitoring the quality of an application during the project provides another level of comfort that the project will deliver what’s expected.
