Major ISO 5055 standard released - CAST first platform to fully cover it
While 90% of software production issues are caused by just 8% of
software flaws – flaws in the architecture*, no international
standard has defined how to find and prevent them. Until now.
The new ISO/IEC 5055 (ISO 5055) provides a set of engineering
rules to assess the internals of software systems for four
business-critical factors – Security, Reliability, Maintainability,
Those factors determine how trustworthy, dependable, and
resilient a software system will be.
Financial institutions, governments, telecoms, manufacturers,
system integrators, and others can leverage ISO 5055 to avoid
disruptions, reputational damage, or excessive IT costs. They can
also use it to objectively show the structural condition of
critical systems to regulators, boards, or stakeholders.
The widely accepted standard culminates 12 years of effort by
industry consortia CISQ and OMG, experts from the Software
Engineering Institute of Carnegie Melon University, and 2,000+
practitioners from enterprises with large IT teams, IT services
providers and software vendors.
The ISO 5055 rules allow for automatic detection of severe
structural flaws by software analysis platforms.
The first platform to fully cover ISO 5055 is the CAST ‘MRI for
Software’, with its unique ability to reverse engineer
architectures and track manipulation and access to data all the way
from user entry to the database. It automatically performs
full-system analysis of all data structures, code components, and
their interdependencies against ISO 5055.
