IBM Systems Magazine recently put the spotlight on an ambitious FMS Solutions modernization project completed with the help of CM First Group, a successful project resulting in significant savings in time and resources.


As a project progresses, you can see new business functions get implemented and bugs fixed but do you know if your team is adding more technical debt to get the project completed on-time or doing a good job of managing the complexity of the code base?
