The Application Management Tools Industry Has Failed You!
Tim Bower, Original Software

About the Topic

There are only a hand full of people at the ‘sharp end’ of business that provide excellent quality service in spite of a large, confused and hindering infrastructure that has been setup to support service delivery. Today the marketplace is flooded with tools that address very specific parts of the Application Quality management lifecycle-- many of which have been around (in one form or another) for the best part of twenty years. As a result they are inflexible and, quite frankly, inapplicable for today’s way of work. Other more recent innovations, i.e. open-source, on the surface appear shiny and new. However, once we get past the shiny wrapper, they tend emulate their significantly older relatives. Join us to discover what we should be demanding from the ‘tools’ industry and, more importantly, why.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Understand the flaws in current Software Quality Management products
  • Develop a consensus for a ‘better way’
  • Explore the benefits of improving Software Quality Management processes and systems
