"Code Quality Is In a Critical State," Says Enerjy Software CEO Nigel Cheshire
Cites "Underserved" Segment of Development Community

Nigel Cheshire, CEO of Enerjy Software, a leading provider of proven, software integrity solutions to Java development organizations, stressed that it's time for the software industry to recognize that code quality is in a critical state. In an upcoming announcement, Enerjy Software will unveil a new product that will, for the first time, empower development managers to meet the code quality challenge without having to relinquish productivity because of additional learning curves or team downtime.

"Development managers are the most underserved segment of the development community," said Cheshire. "They shoulder the burden for code quality and standards, yet up to this point have not been given the tools necessary to succeed." Cheshire sees in 2006 as the time when development managers must demand that heightened code quality measures are built into the development process. But they need the tools to do the job.

The cost of code quality problems continues to soar to record levels, long after the release of the 2002 report by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). NIST found that the nationwide economic impact of inadequate infrastructure for software testing was estimated to be as high as $59.5 billion.

"What have we done as an industry to significantly improve code quality at its source?" asked Cheshire. "If software runs the world, then code quality is everything. IT and Development Managers are facing tougher challenges every day — software bugs cost our economy billions annually. Unless code quality is addressed up front, organizations will continue to lose time and money, and the software industry as a whole will continue to lose credibility."

Enerjy Software’s proven integrity solutions take the guesswork out of ensuring the quality of Java code. The company’s exclusive ‘ZIP’ philosophy – zero impact on process – ensures development managers that their developers will embrace its code quality solutions, without the need to change their daily processes. Enerjy Software helps organizations establish coding standards to speed the entire development process and pre-empt bugs, saving considerable time, money and maintenance.

Cheshire is absolutely correct about the problem. But I don't blame it on the tools. We practitioners are tolerating code quality that is intolerable. Of course, Enerjy wants to sell a solution (and this piece is pretty vague about that) but like everything else in this business the problem can only be really solved in human processes and frankly, human discipline to adhere to those processes. We are spending too much time stroking our own egos, guarding our turf, or rescuing our sorry hides and not enough time committing to high quality.

This must be one of the most vapory "articles" I've read on this site, it strikes me more like a disguised advertisement than anything else. At least it told me absolutely nothing news-worthy. For me, this is below the standards expected from Java Developers Journal.

I could not agree more - for too long the software industry has accepted poor quality; we would do well to look at manufacturing industries where adherance to standards is a prerequisite for staying in business.

To quote just two of W. Edwards Deming 14 points:

1 Create constancy of purpose towards improvement of the product and service in order to become competitive, stay in business, and provide jobs.

2 Adopt the new philosophy: we are in a new economic age. We no longer need to live with commonly accepted levels of delay, mistake, defective material and defective manufacture.

Just substitute 'maufacture' with 'software'!!
