Unfortunately, as for any other “risk reduction” factor, it is easy to quantify the money that is spent on prevention but it is difficult to quantify the money that, eventually, could have been wasted not adopting it. Software measurement and estimation, as a basis of “quantitative management”, may help in several ways to achieve a good cost/benefit ratio in ICT processes.
