This research reveals that the cost of poor quality software in the US in 2018 was around $2.84 trillion.
This study aggregates publicly available data on the cost of poor software quality in the US nowadays. It aims to describe how to boost software quality improvement programs across the private sector and government.
According to this paper, good quality software refers to a software product or software system that offers value to users, is profitable, doesn't create issues or problems, and contributes somehow to the goals of humanity. Poor quality software can be defined as the opposite, the document says.
Just a few of the costs caused by poor quality software are very apparent. The research indicates that it is key to identify and improve these costs that are not obvious in order to reduce costs.
In the area of external de deficiencies and failures the paper found that from the perspective of what's known as legacy systems and the key role they have in a good share of IT shops, the costs of poor quality software are estimated at $635bn this year.
The costs of cyber breaches are also expensive - in terms of money and reputation. According to recent data, the impact of cyber attacks on US government and private sector are estimated to have a cost of around $126 bn.
Regarding the area of internal deficiencies and failures, the paper showed that from the viewpoint of the total portfolio of present IT projects, it is a fact that around one-third of them either will be canceled or will fail. It is estimated that $130bn is lost in troubled projects, while nearly $50bn is lost in canceled projects.
As for detecting and repairing internal problems, the estimated cost would be about $500bn, the report found. In the area of technical debt, the costs are estimated at $.54 trillion in technical debt in 2018.
