In 1999, an organization contributed a large group of enhancement projects to the International Software Benchmarking Standards Group's Data Repository. The contributing organization received an individual benchmark report for each project, comparing it to the most relevant projects in the repository. The ISBSG also performed an organizational benchmarking exercise that compared the organization's set of 60 projects as a whole to the repository as a whole. The benchmarking exercise aimed to provide valuable information to the organization and to measure the benchmarking exercise's effectiveness given the repository's anonymous nature.
