What is ISO 25000 Certification?

Systems and software engineering — Systems and software Quality Requirements and Evaluation (SQuaRE)

The series of standards ISO/IEC 25000, also known as SQuaRE (System and Software Quality Requirements and Evaluation), has the goal of creating a framework for the evaluation of software product quality. ISO/IEC 25000 is the result of the evolution of several other standards; specifically from ISO/IEC 9126, which defines a quality model for software product evaluation, and ISO/IEC 14598, which defines the process for software product evaluation. The series of standards ISO/IEC 25000 consists of five divisions.

Benefits of ISO 25000 Certification

• Setting oneself apart from the competition, ensuring delivery times and reduction of product faults after implementation in production
• Being able to establish service level agreements, defining certain quality parameters that the product must fulfil before being delivered.
• Debugging software product faults prior to delivery, which means cost savings in the subsequent maintenance stage.
• Assessing and controlling the performance of the developed software product, ensuring that it will be able to generate results taking into account the established time and resource constraints.
• Ensuring that the developed software product meets security requirements (confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, non-repudiation, etc.).
• Checking that the product developed will be able to be put into production without compromising other systems and maintaining compatibility with required interfaces.

The ISO/IEC 25000 series of standards, also known as SQuaRE (System and Software Quality Requirements and Evaluation), contains a framework to evaluate software product quality. ISO/IEC 25010 defines a set of eight software quality characteristics, or system “-ilities,” i.e. security, reliability, and maintainability.
