Our Mission: Code+People

Every company is a software company

Whether you’re a bank or a car manufacturer, software has become your most important asset. It is rapidly disrupting existing industries and creating new market leaders. Today’s executives realize that much of a company’s value is in its software and its pace of product innovation.

You need to be great at managing your development capacity

While companies have ERP applications for financial metrics and CRM systems for sales metrics, there hasn’t been a performance management system capable of measuring the value and success of a company's software investment.
