Benefits of Benchmarking

Benchmarking allows you to compare the performance of your software development/maintenance project to other projects in the IT industry.

This is valuable when the other organisations employ best practices and are considered to be the “best in industry”.

Benchmarking your project clearly shows key performance areas that require improvement as you aim for excellent productivity.  Quality and customer satisfaction must be maintained as project performance is improved.
