Reasons to submit your data

Help the IT industry create more certainty in project planning and estimations. Your data is added to the ISBSG Data Repository.  Project teams can then analyze ISBSG project data and use it as a benchmark for their own project estimates.

Your project data will help to power ISBSG’s productivity query tool. This generates benchmark estimates for specific project types. ISBSG offers this for all users at a minimal cost.

Support research into IT project management methodologies.  Your data will provide additional information for university academics who use ISBSG data as a resource for their research.

ISBSG publishes reports tracking the latest project trends, based on the analysis of project data. Your unique data will broaden the scope of our analysis.

ISBSG values your privacy

We guarantee the anonymity of all organizations that submit data to us. No personal data (i.e. names or addresses) are stored by ISBSG, so project data cannot be traced back to its originating company.
