SOFTEC09 Theme: Software Testing: Mind The Gap
The 'Mind' concept embraces the scope of attending, taking care,
concentrate or simply be watchful, or in the corporate sense refers
to managing and addressing the myriad of issues, variances, discrepancies
and inconsistencies when “Gaps” exists in any of its
core practice and business areas.
Software testing is a cognitively complex technical activity that
combines areas of knowledge & techniques, skills, processes,
good resources, technology, governance & leadership, and the
nurtured experience, towards ensuring software quality that has become
a key factor for the success of products and organisations.
SOFTEC2009’s theme “Mind The Gap” therefore explores
the challenges, practices, learnings, innovations and the roles of
the industry stakeholders in minding the gaps that exist: identifying,
addressing and even exploiting the gaps that exist in pursuit of
software testing with the ultimate goal of managing the organization’s
bottom line and profitability through quality software products.
The Conference will feature keynotes and presentations , with high-quality
knowledge materials delivered by members of the international quality
engineering community. All lectures will be delivered in English.

exhibitions by leading industry organizations to demonstrate their
tools and services, as well as tutorials and test clinic conducted
