Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

By: Robert Spearing

In 2016, it would be impossible to have missed the technical debt renaissance that’s continued to build momentum over the last decade. But, like any metaphor, we must understand it in context.

Recent studies suggest that an average technical debt of $3-5 exists per line of software code, or an average of $1 million per system. In 2010, Gartner famously estimated the worldwide technical debt at $500 Billion, forecasting growth to $1 trillion by 2015. Over the course of this multiple-part series, we’ll level-set on exactly what technical debt is and explore how many quantify that debt: by line of code analysis, by management philosophy or business impact, or via other abstract terms. Further, we’ll look at the larger picture of how we often mistake the root causes of debt while attempting to quantify or define its financial impact.
