Fraunhofer IESE offering Free Workshop on Software Quality on 27 September 2010

Press Release / September 14, 2010

On 27 September 2010, the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) will open its doors to decision-makers from small and medium-size enterprises from the region by offering a workshop on Software Quality.


When it comes to software development, small and medium-size enterprises are facing two challenges today: On the one hand, software systems are becoming more and more complex, development cycles are getting shorter, and new functions must be brought to market ever faster – in other words, the complexity of modern software is increasing by leaps and bounds. On the other hand, software is increasingly being used for products that did not use to be equipped with software. Since developers are usually tied up in everyday business, they rarely have free capacities – which would be needed to achieve necessary improvements.

The Software Quality workshop will focus on conveying novel solution approaches for numerous software development problems.
Not only will the participants get learn something about architecture evaluations with SAVE, but they will also receive state-of-the-art information – about subjects ranging from domain-specific languages via modern testing procedures to the evaluation of safety-critical systems.
