    Maximizing the Business Value of Software

          It’s not just about doing it faster
              It’s about doing it better
          It’s not just about getting the software done
              It’s about getting it deployed & used
          It’s not just about doing software right
              It’s about doing the right software

    Borland’s Vision

       Continue to build software for software people
       Continue to serve the needs of software creators
       Broaden our outreach to help “other” software people

       We call this vision Software Delivery Optimization

            Software Delivery Optimization is about
             driving business value from software.

    Borland Says

       “If you’re in business, YOU’RE IN SOFTWARE".

       “Turn off the bits, turn off the lights”.

       “Software MUST become a core competency”.

       “You’ve got to “Get Good At Software””.

    The Borland Mission

            Software Delivery Optimization:
            The transformation of software development to
            an accelerated, yet disciplined approach that
            aligns teams, technology and process to
            maximize the business value of software.

    How CMMi fits into our strategy

    Software delivery as a managed business process
    CMMi adds process expertise to Borland’s products, which provide customers
        with a complete solution for optimizing cost performance, quality, time-
        to-market and productivity.

        property, including courses, knowledge bases and methods that directly
        support Borland’s current and future product offerings.

    How is this significant to our customers?
    The acquisition of TeraQuest provides Borland and TeraQuest customers with
        integrated technology and process solutions that span executive to
        individual developer roles.

        within the software lifecycle can help customers address the cultural
        changes required to migrate software development to a more managed
        business process.

     Creation of Chief Process Officer position.
 A Process Optimization Practice

     A newly created group within our Professional Services Org.

     The Process Optimization Practice is focused on helping clients
        make software delivery a managed process.
     Using CMMI, the new practice will help customers transform
        their organization’s processes to address critical business
        needs that will help optimize cost, schedule, quality and
        customer satisfaction.
     Also focused on addressing our internal need for Process
     By empowering the POP, we are ensuring CMMi success

 Technology Agnostics

     CMMI-based process appraisals should be technology
         agnostic, how will Borland retain objectivity?
     Borland intends to ensure that the new Process Optimization
         Practice remains independent and objective in its assessments
         and recommendations, and focused on providing customers
         value-driven solutions.
     All appraisers are bound by a code of conduct with the Software
         Engineering Institute.
     Borland’s Process Optimization services will continue to support
         customers that have multi-vendor tool environments much
         like it supports multi-platform environments and a variety of
         development processes.

 Ensuring success with CMMi

     Success (or not!) will depend on:
     Management participation
     People Empowerment
     Understanding the Business Drivers
     Involvement in Process review & approval
     Measuring the Process, not the people
     Implement Measures, not Targets
     Automate at every opportunity
     Avoid Bureaucracy at every opportunity
     Informal & Formal Training
     Communicating the “What’s in it for me?” factors
