The Future of Software Projects: How Quality Assurance and Development Are Changing
Pete DuPré
Chief Solutions Architect for Micro Focus

About the Topic

I recently heard the CEO of a financial institution state "We are a software company, masquerading as a bank." Business is built on software. Today, if we aren't building precisely what the users need, we're on the road to irrelevance. As technologists, we have to start hitting the mark every time for our users, and stop settling for mediocrity. Quality and Development Professionals are under ever-increasing pressure to perform better and deliver faster. In the face of rapid technology changes, vastly more complex systems, globalization, and new regulatory burdens, changes in the way we test and develop software are critical.
