Talk at SoftTest 26 Jan 6pm Dublin on “Test Centres of Excellence”

Annex meeting room in the Central Hotel, 1 – 5 Exchequer Street Dublin 2 Thursday, 26 January 2012 from 18:00 to 20:00 

Too often companies are relying on hard work, experience and luck rather than planning and executing tests in an appropriate and focused way. With increasing demands these systems grow to be more inefficient, unreliable, costly and can ultimately become a serious risk to the business.

So how are organisations meeting this challenge head on? The answer is by developing and growing Test Centres of Excellence (CoE). A Test CoE is a professional service organisation that delivers testing services to the IT group and the business. It comprises a dedicated and independently managed team of people with a core competency in testing, operational processes to support testing for the enterprise and supporting tools and technologies.

Presenter: David Cass. David is a Senior Manager in Strategy and Operations Consulting for Deloitte Ireland with over 9 years experience in software testing, test programme management, test strategy development and organisational change. David specialises in developing organisational test strategies, end to end quality assurance and test organisation planning & optimisation for large organisations.
