ISO Excellence: Elevating Software Development Through Quality and Security Standards

A well-organised software company not only shines in its operations but also promises predictability and stability in its partnerships, guided by strategic foresight. This foundation of reliability is precisely what ISO certifications exemplify, marking a company's commitment to operational excellence and stringent data security. In this article, we'll look at the specifics of PN-EN ISO 9001:2015-10 and ISO/IEC 27001:2022 and explore why having an ISO-compliant software partner can offer significant benefits.



ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 standards

The PN-EN ISO 9001:2015-10 and ISO/IEC 27001:2022 standards emerge as critical benchmarks that ensure businesses operate at the pinnacle of quality and security. Let’s break down what each of these standards entails and why they are pivotal in the tech industry.

PN-EN ISO 9001:2015-10

At its core, ISO 9001 is the international standard for quality management systems (QMS). It’s about embedding a quality-first mindset throughout the organization. It’s a framework that helps organizations guarantee they meet customer and other stakeholder needs within statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service.

Adopting ISO 9001 means a company is committed to continuous improvement and cares to make its processes as efficient and effective as possible.


The goal here is to set a high bar for operational excellence and consistently meet, if not exceed, those standards. An approach like this is absolutely necessary for the software development industry, in which quality is not a luxury but a requirement for success and client satisfaction.

ISO/IEC 27001:2022

In contrast, ISO 27001 focuses on the best practices for an information security management system (ISMS). Given the sensitive nature of data in the digital age, this standard is indispensable for any organization handling critical information, particularly in the software development sector.

By adhering to ISO 27001, companies demonstrate a profound commitment to securing data against all forms of threats, be they cyber-attacks, data leaks, or other forms of security breaches.


On top of that, this standard lays down the criteria for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS. Its aim is to employ the right tools and technologies for cybersecurity and create an organizational culture that instills data protection into every employee and every process.

Benefits of ISO Certification in Software Development

In the context of software development, ISO certification represents a proactive way of delivering excellence and securing client trust.

Enhanced risk management

One of the most significant advantages of ISO certifications is an improved ability to manage risks. Risks can come from various sources, be they technical glitches, cybersecurity threats, or project management challenges.

ISO 9001 helps in identifying and mitigating operational risks, facilitating smooth project execution. ISO 27001, meanwhile, focuses on identifying and reducing information security risks – an essential aspect in today’s data-driven business environments.

Compliance with laws and regulations

Regulatory compliance is non-negotiable, hence adhering to ISO standards helps ensure that software development practices align with the latest legal requirements. ISO 27001, in particular, is instrumental for checking compliance with stringent data protection laws, such as GDPR.

Systematic process improvement

ISO 9001 lays a framework for continual improvement in all organizational processes. This means that an ISO-certified firm meets quality standards at a point in time and is committed to the ongoing enhancement of its processes.

Greater satisfaction

Finally, ISO certifications play a crucial role in building and maintaining client trust and satisfaction. Clients who partner with ISO-certified companies like Inwedo can have confidence in the quality and security of the software solutions provided.

As such, it is becoming increasingly clear why these certifications and working with professional ISO-compliant companies are a must if you want to deliver top-tier services.

Inwedo’s journey to ISO certification


ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications represent our deep-rooted commitment to upholding the highest standards in every aspect of our service – from the intricate threads of code to the overarching frameworks of project management.

Our journey towards ISO certification began with a comprehensive market analysis. In an industry where quality and security are paramount, we recognize the need to differentiate ourselves and elevate our services.

That analysis revealed a clear trend: companies holding ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications were not just preferred, but actually perceived as more reliable and competent in the software development sector. It was evident that these certifications are essential markers of excellence and trust.

One of the most significant challenges was adapting our communication and procedures to align with the specific language and requirements of the ISO standards. The world of ISO, often associated with large corporations, presented a different narrative and nomenclature from what we were accustomed to in our daily operations.

Moreover, the implementation of ISO 27001 required twice the effort compared to ISO 9001, primarily due to its comprehensive focus on information security. This involved adopting new technologies and practices and complementing our security policies, both in terms of cyber issues and working remotely. Security of data, information, and systems has always been important at the company, hence the implementation of ISO certifications showed us that this was the right, natural direction to take.

At times, the path to ISO certification seemed demanding and complex, especially in the beginning. But as we began understanding the value derived from this process, things became much simpler. Ultimately, working on implementing ISO standards revealed potential areas for our organization’s development. By embracing these standards, we have become better, safer, and more resilient. Now, I can’t imagine operating our company any other way.

Despite these challenges, the journey to ISO certification was profoundly enlightening.

We learned that being organized and process-driven was just the starting point. The real value lies in continuously improving and questioning our methods. Even though we were already well-organized, this reflection helped us to enhance our procedures and gain a deeper understanding of our operational dynamics.

This process, prompted by the structured demands of ISO certification, unveiled many questions we hadn’t considered before. Seeking answers to these questions became a powerful catalyst for organizational learning and improvement. It’s a testament to the value of not just knowing where we stand but also understanding the direction in which we need to grow.

How ISO certification transformed Inwedo

Our challenging six-month journey to ISO certification, including detailed audits, has enhanced our internal processes and ingrained a culture of continuous improvement within Inwedo and its services. Our mindset has evolved to focus on constant enhancement across all areas of our organization. We have honed our processes and procedures to ensure that every aspect of our work was structured to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients.

For example, our internal gold standard, Polaris, has also been verified under ISO. Now, we are adapting it to the team extension model to also teach our customers our standards, which will make cooperation in the model stable, secure, reliable, scalable, and predictable.

We reviewed the processes for legitimacy, wrote down new ones, and put them in order. We now do this on a regular basis. We focus on GDPR compliance and other data protection regulations to give our clients the peace of mind that their software development partner is not only skilled, but also operating in line with the necessary legal frameworks.

Also, when we work with companies, our requirement is that they meet certain safety and quality criteria in accordance with ISO, even if they are not certified.

As a result, our operations are aligned with the highest standards and our practices are guaranteed to remain cutting-edge and relevant. This enables us to deliver software solutions that are innovative, robust, and reliable.

Continuous improvement

We will continue to uphold these standards as we move forward, driven by our passion for quality, security, and excellence in software development.
