Software Risk Master (SRM)

A predictive tool for the early sizing and risk profile analysis of software development projects.

Historically, over 90% of all software projects are underestimated and overbudget.

SRM proactively identifies and quantifies the risk factors associated with this underestimation.

Early sizing leads to early risk analysis. Early risk analysis leads to proactive management. Proactive management leads to control and success.

Finally, effective oversight of technology projects is possible.

SRM allows you to manage and validate estimates, costs, and risks BEFORE requirements are started.

The first check and balance system that accurately predicts software development results.
