Quality Engineering in Action with Jess Ingrassellino, Hitesh Khodani and Venkat Ramakrishnan
Achieving superior Quality has been the focus of organisations for decades. A lot of methodologies and processes have been designed in the past, and have been followed to achieve this objective.
Yet, as far as the software industry is concerned, Quality is evading because of the nature of Software, which is abstract and not physically tangible. Also, the Quality of the products and services are not measured just by industry standard metrics anymore, but as a perception of various stakeholders like the business, the product team, the end users, the industry, and even the general market. This has given rise to new challenges that businesses have to address while aspiring for superior Quality.
In this talk Jess, Hitesh and Venkat will talk about Quality from various stakeholders’ perspectives, challenges involved in achieving Quality and how to address them, and some guiding principles that are available in the industry today which can be utilized as best practices to achieve superior Quality.
