IBM’s System for Grading Developers

How can you tell which developers produce quality code and which need improvement? In order to answer that question, IBM has begun using a software platform from Cast that provides a quantitative analysis of code based on performance, security and technical depth. IBM developers now earn grades that can help individuals improve their reputations or show managers where more training is needed.

IBM’s Pat Howard explained, “Essentially [the Cast system] permitted our people to walk around with a scorecard.
