The software development policy helps to regulate software development and code management in your organization. A disorganized software development process can result in wasted time and wasted developer resources. Creating a software development practice with an eye to efficiency and reuse is key to cost savings. The software development policy will allow standardization of software development, resulting in better resource utilization, a more consistent outcome, and a higher quality software product delivered to end users.
Risks addressed by this policy:
- Loss of time and resources on unproductive software development
- Conflicting software specification requirements
- Significant cost overruns
