DCG Software Value

DCG Software Value (formerly David Consulting Group) is a global provider of software analytics, software quality management, and Agile services. Since 1994, companies of all sizes who depend on their software have relied on us to meet their standards and deliver valuable improvements at the right price. We maintain a U.S. corporate office in Malvern, Pa., and a European corporate office in the U.K.

Our vision for the future of the software industry is one in which the value of all software is visible and openly discussed between the entire organization, leading to improved decision-making and resource management and fostering a greater impact on the company's bottom line. Therefore, our mission is to make software value visible. In doing so, we help companies achieve their expected outcome for software projects and, where possible, to implement improvements that will make their software more efficient, user-friendly and cost effective. If you have a problem, we have a solution.
