Swiss Testing Day Impressions
The Big Innovation Climb in Software Quality Assurance
Last week Zurich hosted the annual Swiss Testing Day at the Congress Haus. In this age of constant flux, it’s great to know that some things remain the same year after year—such as this world class event. Think of Swiss Testing Day as pure oxygen for quality assurance professionals.
Keynote speaker, writer and mountaineer, Andy Holzer inspired attendees with his awesome speech about unusual courage in the face of adversity. In spite of being blind, Andy climbed Mount Everest including 6 of the 7 Summits. The main lesson he learned is that success in innovation comes from being in the dark and only with the help of a partner. It cannot be achieved alone.
Innovative Problem Solving
While there, we spoke with leading organizations including Google, Credit Suisse, the Zurich Cantonal Bank and they all were looking for innovation in software quality assurance.
The big questions that loomed were: “what is software quality?”, “how can we measure and improve quality?” and “how can we see what’s happening?”
Picture the Head of Quality literally running from meeting to meeting with his device of choice and being able to press a button and see the visual analytics for his/her important Quality Gates and KPIs.
How amazing would that be?
