Businesses of today are looking to deliver value to their customers and they require quality at speed. To satisfy their demands, IT delivery teams need to put quality first. This means applying the right quality measures at the right time and right place in the IT delivery process. In today’s DevOps culture, especially, this requires cross-functional teams to clearly define their quality engineering strategy so that all the stakeholders understand how they can contribute to delivering the business value that the client expects.
In this interactive session, Dennis Geurts and I will discuss the why and how of the quality engineering strategy and welcome your questions and feedback.
