Understanding ROI

Using Return on Investment (ROI) as a meaningful measure is challenging even in small, simple organizations, regardless of the level of technology involved. That is not to say it cannot or should not be done.

Can ROI be measured with any degree of accuracy? Perhaps not- it is bound up with the value proposition of the investment, which is often measured with numbers that are considered fuzzy at best. However, one need not look far to cite high-profile examples of project failures, cost overruns, and poor quality software products, which are clearly and easily understood as poor value returned on IT investment. On the flip side, it becomes increasingly obvious that any IT organization elevates its ROI when it does any of the following:
  • Utilize a proven Software Development Life Cycle methodology
  • Provide a development platform that integrates configuration management
  • Define the value by analyzing business requirements and cataloging them as deliverables
  • Take steps to ensure that projects are completed on time, within budget, and deliver the intended value
  • Commit to, invest in, and organizationally support a robust Quality Assurance program
  • Proactively manage change across projects and evolutionary stages of applications
While the above may look like a familiar list of Critical Success Factors for software development organizations, it is amazing to consider how few successfully and consistently meet these commitments.

By applying best practices in Project Management and across the entire spectrum of the Software Development Life Cycle, Astrue Consulting Services helps you achieve and sustain a higher level of ROI, reduce the risk of failure, and generate long-term savings.
