Software Risks Are Growing

Every company, large or small, relies on an ever-increasing portfolio of custom software, SaaS, and COTS applications to run its business. And, every company has tremendous business, financial, security, and regulatory compliance risks in their software and product development portfolios.

Today, everyone is learning to code and more software is being created outside of IT governance, driving massive decentralization of ownership. Risks are immediate, and accelerating, as you increase your dependence on software.

Software risk is REAL — Why?

Companies are still dependent on humans to find and reduce risk. This is an impossible job for humans as software portfolios grow. Humans simply have no way to turn this much information and complexity into TRUE insight and manage it — in real-time. The challenge:

  • Decentralization and Agile development

  • Growing complexity of decaying and new software

  • Fragmented development tools and data explosion

  • Pace of business and technology change

  • Open-source software adoption

  • Multi-cloud environments

    • Container-based microservices architectures

    • Massive size of software products

    • Dependency on hundreds to thousands of products

Software Risk Continuos Consequences.PNG

Prevention is key!

A single product can carry hundreds of millions of dollars in direct and indirect risks and costs. Consequences are devastating and a brand may never fully recover. Failure to mitigate risk results in a continuous cycle of everything impacted. The result:

  • Suboptimal, destructive, or lethal decision-making, strategies, planning, and financial performance

  • Poor business outcomes

  • Loss of revenue and profits

  • Unsustainable rise in software costs and risks

  • Critical product downtime

  • Halt of business, IT, or software operations

    • Dissatisfied customers

    • Data or system breaches & information loss

    • Unproductive employees
