Certification of AD&M benchmarking service providers
There could be different reasons to benchmark the development and maintenance of an organizations’ applications. This includes: comparison of productivity, quality, time to market, cost efficiency, need of improving project estimation capability etc.
ISO/IEC 29155 provides the overall framework model for IT project performance benchmarking and describes all required activities for a successful benchmarking.
The IFPUG Benchmarking Certification represents a standard method through which IFPUG confirms that a benchmarking service provider has fulfilled the requirements deemed necessary to be competent to conduct a benchmark analysis, through the investigation of evidence upon criteria that were defined based on applicable ISO/IEC 29155 tasks and activities.
