“Ility” is a Latin suffix meaning the “ability to do something”. Wiktionary states that “ility” is an abstract quality that good software should exhibit. As far as our software is concerned, we’ve got all the “ilities” covered. And when I say “ilities” I mean just about every single word you can think of that ends with “ility”.

Some of the really important “ilities” to consider when picking software include:

  1. Usability – Usability is how easy and friendly the software is to use. Users need to be able to learn how to use the software and it should be intuitive for a new user to learn quickly.
  2. Scalability – Scalability refers to the ability of your software to grow with your companies changing needs. Software that’s scalable can meet the demand of stress from increased usage.
  3. Reliability – Reliability reflects how dependable the software is. Is it always up and running without fail (or very few failures)? If so, you’ve got some really good software.
  4. Flexibility – Flexibility in the software code is important since the code needs to be open to change. Software needs to be flexible to meet various different business needs.
  5. Compatibility – Compatibility means your software plays well with other programs and can easily sync up with other programs your business uses.
