Account Manager at a wireless company with 51-200 employees
Vendor
It is the most effective tool for IT procurement managers and directors

Pros and Cons

  • "Lifecycle features, because they permit us to show non-technical people the risk and costs hidden into the code due to bad programming practices."
  • "DIfferent languages, such Spanish, Portuguese, and so on."

What other advice do I have?

If they need a tool to be used across your organization (technicians, managers, and directors), this is the tool. Have highly qualified staff or consultancy provider (code quality and governance) to define the risk model to be used and measured with Kiuwan, this increases the ROI.

Adds value to our customers to validate what they receive.

What other advice do I have?

“A fool with a tool is still a fool”. Chose somebody who can add the right processes, methods, and techniques to actually implement the customers' objectives. We try to build a eco-system to cross-sell our solutions. There is a mix between maturity and money. That is the barrier to break before showing the customer that he is purchasing something without risks before he goes into production. They should focus on a product that adds value to the corporation.
