Abstract: Analysis of Software Project Health for Strategic Decision Making in Software Project Management used for monitoring Health of Software Projects in Software companies. These monitoring helps to improve business performance in order to increase revenue of the software companies. Traditional methods showed that these monitoring would be done individually by the specific Project Manager and results into poor decisions due to lack of richer and slicker user interface. To overcome these limitations and to improve business performance, we need to make the effective strategic decisions from existing business data. For this, we need a methodology that outputs some analytical results which helps to take business decisions such as Task assignments, Project estimation, Resource performance evaluation, Product releases, etc. To help to take these strategic decisions, this paper presents a concept for the integration of three tools testing tool, Product defect management system and business analytic tools. In which, Testing tool having some database, and a Product Defect Management System, which track issues on failed test cases from testing tool and a Business Intelligence tool which takes data externally from testing tool database and shows different analysis visually in terms of bar charts, pie charts, line charts, etc. , which gives us a better statistics to analyze software project health.
