Mason, OH — April 30, 2008 — Seapine Software, the leading provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, today released early results from its quality-ready assessment, a survey that evaluates key indicators of quality within a software development organization. After collecting data from over 600 respondents, the results indicate that the top two factors driving development organizations to focus on ALM solutions are:

• The need to reduce risk by preventing poor quality from impacting customer satisfaction
• The need to quickly respond to customer requests and requirements

“Software quality and reliability are lifelines to customer loyalty, and profitability,” says Alan See, vice president of marketing, Seapine Software. “Yet organizations struggle to achieve quality and deliver their products on time.” Survey results indicate that more than one third of companies completed their application development on time and on budget less than 75 percent of the time.

The survey also indicates that over 70 percent of the companies are undertaking one of following actions to improve the quality of their software development:

• Clearly defining quality metrics
• Undertaking pilot projects or proof-of-concepts pertaining to software development quality
• Seeking executive sponsorship for software development quality improvements

The respondents represent companies of every size. Seventy percent are small companies (less than $250M in revenue), twenty percent are mid-size ($250M – $2.5B), and ten percent are large. The leading industries represented include high tech (32%), financial services (16%), consumer products/retail (9%), and telecommunications (8%).

Organizations can complete the quality-ready assessment online at Seapine’s Web site ( The survey consists of 34 questions and can be finished in less than 15 minutes. The results, which are emailed minutes after the survey is completed, identify how organizations rate in four key technology areas (tracking, testing, automation, and change). Once the initial benchmarking data has been tabulated, organizations will have the additional opportunity to compare themselves to their peers.
