The Future of Software Projects: Innovations & Emerging Trends in Software Quality Assurance
Pete Du Pré
Chief Solutions Architect

About the Topic

In the face of rapid technology changes, vastly more complex systems, globalization, mobile devices, cloud computing, and new regulatory burdens, changes in the way we develop and test software are even more critical. New approaches like Agile are rapidly gaining popularity and delivering business value. Thought leaders are encouraging organizations to drive quality from the start of the software development lifecycle to streamline and reduce costs. New innovations are solving the age-old problem with requirements. We will explore emerging trends and new approaches that are challenging the way we think about software development and quality assurance and present us with ways to achieve "doing more with less".
