The Consortium for Information & Software Quality™ (CISQ™) is a not-for-profit IT leadership group that develops standards for automating software measurement from source code - this includes measures of software size, structural quality, technical debt, and related metrics. The standards written by CISQ enable IT and business leaders to measure the risk IT applications pose to the business, as well as estimate the cost of ownership. CISQ was co-founded by the Object Management Group® (OMG®) and Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University. The specifications are submitted to the OMG and ISO for approval as international standards.
