What makes a “good” service is a moving target. Technologies and requirements change over time. It can be impossible to ensure that none of your services have been left behind.

The Service ScoreCard approach is to have a small check for each service initiative we have, this could be anything measurable; deployment frequency, the oncall team all have phone; ensuring the latest version of the JVM.

The Service ScoreCard, gives each service a grade from 'F' to 'A+', based on passing or failing the list of checks. As soon as anyone see the service grade’s slipping everyone rallies to improve the grades.

We can then set up rules based on the grades, “Only B and above services can deploy 24 / 7”, “moratorium on services without an A+” or “No SRE support until the services below C grade”.
