What is Software Economics?

For too long, proprietary software has been the backbone of businesses, but a black box to financial executives. ​Silverthread is the universal translator between business KPIs and technical insights. ​Our technology is able to accurately link developer performance and software design to tangible economic returns in cost, revenue, and optionality. 

Our unique CodeMRI® software enables executives to make educated decisions about the future of their software development - providing accurate ROI, scheduling, and optionality estimates. Valuing proprietary software is difficult, and has often been subjective. Silverthread provides a scientific valuation of software and provides the decision making tools to decide next steps - ensuring that your technology is in line with your mission.
