Quality management throughout the product and application lifecycle

The bottom line—success or failure often depends upon one
thing: Whose product or service is of the highest quality.
The quest for business transformation through innovation
and increasing reliance on software to deliver that innovation,
while at the same time reducing risk and cost, mandates a more
rigorous approach to managing software quality. Complexity is
now a given in software and with many products, systems and
services getting smarter—meaning they can do more for us—the
traditional approach to managing software quality is impractical
and can no longer deliver.
