Ensuring the high quality of software produced by or within an organisation should be a goal, as should doing it right the first time to reduce time and cost.
The use of processes and of Management Systems to meet International Standards has already been found by organisations making physical items to be essential, but it is equally useful for the making of software and for the provision of software services. However, these processes and their Management Systems need to be tailored for the IT industry and its increasing number of Standards.
This presentation looks at why software needs processes and considers how a well proven management framework can be used in the design of the processes and of the Management Systems to achieve these objectives.
