TMT Roundtable: Getting a handle on software quality

06.06.2019 BE law

Erik Valgaeren, TMT Partner at Stibbe Brussels, and his team organize a roundtable on software quality in our Brussels office on June 6th, 2019.

Software quality is a recurring theme in many matters handled by our TMT team. Whether our assistance relates to preparing tender documents, contracting effectively, assessing proper performance or allocating ownership and accountability in challenging IT projects, questions concerning software quality always arise.

So what is software quality? And how does one measure, assess and report about it? What are the tools, benchmarks and references that can be used for creating an objective framework to assess software quality and manage your projects?

Join us for a lively debate on this subject matter at our next TMT roundtable on Thursday, 6 June starting at noon.

Dr. Maja D’Hondt from the Software Improvement Group (SIG) will be our keynote speaker. Maja is the authority on the issue of software quality, from both scientific and practical perspectives. As holder of a PhD in computer sciences, Maja did a lot of work on software quality tools. Moreover, as a technical expert acting in court cases and as part of the Software Improvement Group, she is well positioned to share with us some practical concerns and project implications of software quality.

Erik Valgaeren, partner at Stibbe Brussels and head of our TMT team, will be the moderator. Several of our TMT team members will be present also to share with you their own experiences in matters we handle on a day to day basis.

Registration is free of charge. If you are interested to attend this session, please send an e-mail to events@stibbe.com. To ensure that the session will be conducted most effectively, we limit attendance to one person per company.
