Predict and Prevent
We audit software and a software development process using tool based consulting.
We use our experience and quantitative analysis to improve software purchase decisions. We analyze software development risk and predict the risk of working with an external vendor. Read our blog if you are interested to learn more about the machine learning techniques we use to calculate risk.
Using Grip will help you make safer software purchase decisions by understanding the risks of working with an external vendor.
How it works
Analysis of People, Process and product
We practice tool based consulting using home grown and industry standard tooling.
At Grip we provide a software development audit based on three elements:
- The people that develop the software. This includes the developers but also other people contributing to the development process such as product managers, testers and others.
- The processes. We analyze both the formal processes supported through documentation and tooling, and the informal processes that are a result of organizational, cultural and personal influences.
- The product. We look at source code, infrastructure, security, and tools. Our focus is on adaptability, maintainability, and reliability.
Tools, Inspections, and Interviews
We do an audit based on automated analysis by proprietary and open source tools, inspections of the tools and output generated by the development team, and interviews with the team members.
Report and Management briefing
We provide our clients and the vendors they audit with comprehensible reports so both can improve.
Our deliverables for our clients are a report and a management briefing. The management briefing is a clear summary of risks and capabilities, while the report contains an in-depth analysis and our recommendations.
Vendors receive comprehensive information on what aspects of their development they are doing well and what aspects they could improve upon.
Clearing House Model
Strict separation between vendor data and client reports.
Clear Results in just a few Days
In just a few days we can provide you with an extensive due diligence that will help you understand the risks of the software organization you want to audit. In most cases four days are enough to provide a detailed report.
