Tracy Ragan - Keeping Score in the IT Compliance Game
Achieving developer acceptance of standardized procedures for managing applications from development to release is one of the largest hurdles facing organizations today. Establishing a standardized development-to-release workflow, often referred to as the ALM (application lifecycle management) process, is particularly critical for organizations in their efforts to meet tough IT compliance mandates. This is much easier said than done, as different development teams have created their own unique procedures that are undocumented, unclear, and nontraceable.

Great article! Love it!

I agree with everything you wrote and I specially agree with the part were you point out the importance of placing the metric in context. Many times I have seen companies use lot of static code analysis tools and measured different kind of metric, were the result has been published on some webpage, but now one really care. They either dont have a goal or/and miss knowledge in its meaning.

I am currently working as a software engineer in a large telecommunication company and often hold small seminarian in the area of software quality, with a goal to make my colleague interested in SQ and interested to improve there output (code). That is hard!
