Software Audit

Entrance’s Software Audit is designed to measure the overall quality of a software application. Our consultants take an in-depth look at your application then document and assess the contents on a number of parameters. Having your system evaluated will allow you to make informed decisions on what software development needs are most important to enhancing company performance.

Software Audit Scorecard

A “scorecard” calculates a percentage score ranging from completely unusable (0%) to extremely high quality intellectual property (100%). The scorecard is presented in two sections: a technical scoring and a business scoring. The scorings are two ways of looking at the same results and each is targeted at a different audience (technical and business).

Technical Scoring Parameters

  • Architecture
  • Development Practices
  • User Interface
  • Application Code
  • Database
  • Security
  • Documentation

Business Scoring Parameters

  • Quality
  • Scalability
  • Security
  • Usability
  • Maintainability

Owners of software applications should understand the trade-offs involved in various design decisions. Some design considerations may not be significant for one business and critical to another. In general, Entrance believes that certain fundamental software architecture principles should apply to all applications. Each application may be customized with respect to its level of sophistication in certain areas (e.g., user interface or security) to achieve a reasonable cost-benefit balance. As consultants, we strive to be objective, and in doing so apply the same scoring methodology to all applications without respect to the individual cost-benefit trade-offs that may or may not apply in specific cases.

We have perfected a rigorous scoring methodology, and not only give clients the score itself, but help them understand the details behind the scoring. This way we can help clients understand the significance of our findings in relation to their business objectives.
