A recent study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology(NIST) determined that software design flaws cost the U.S. economy $60billion per year. This issue was further validated in a recent story byCNN, where a misinterpreted business rule was found to be singularlyresponsible for millions of dollars in erroneous payments made by anHMO.

These findings will measure the extent to which it is not technicalerrors, but errors in the business logic within software, which presentsthe greatest problems for most organizations across industries.

A DelphiResearch Group survey currently being conducted is focusing on how businesslogic mistakes cost U.S. companies billions on an annual basis. The purpose of this survey is to identify current practices andchallenges found in the capturing and defining of business requirements,in particular related to the development and maintenance of businessapplications. The results of this survey will be used to help illustratehow errors in business requirements can be resolved before they areimplemented within software applications
