Software Quality

Chair: Robert Stubenrauch (ITC)

Aims of the AG.IT-Q

The AG.IT-Q is a group of experts who exchange experiences on topics they choose themselves from the broad field of quality in software life cycles at regular meetings (4 per year). The differing approaches and perspectives of software manufacturers and users provide us with valuable know-how. This generates practical knowledge of the potential and use of current processes and tools for improving the quality of IT solutions. Examples of best practice from the participants’ experience are presented and discussed. Service providers join the group as appropriate. 

Target group

The AG.IT-Q is of interest to a wide range of professionals working on software development and quality, covering as it does the requirements from the customer’s perspective, development and implementation at the user’s premises. From engineering aspects to marketing and legal aspects (warranties etc.)

The target group includes:

  • Manufacturers of software products and customised solutions   
  • Customers and users of IT projects in all sectors (CIOs, IT in production etc.)     
  • Service providers from relevant areas of IT development and quality management    
  • Experts from the sciences/research/training in the software engineering field

The following main topics are possible:

  • Methods of software development and corresponding practical experiences
