iqnite 2014 Australia – Call for Paper

Friday, 30 May 2014

16 – 17 October 2014, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

The IT sector has always been synonymous with change, but more than ever, the pace of that change is increasing, and shifts in technology and architecture are bringing about a convergence in roles, and a rising demand for hybrid skill sets. By 2016, more than 50% of business users will rely on a browser, tablet or mobile device rather than a desktop. By 2017, more than 60% of all computing workloads will be processed in the cloud. By 2018, the demand for agile project leads will increase by 75%. By 2019, the demand for Big Data specialists will almost triple, as organisations move to implement business analytics programs. Meanwhile the test resourcing landscape continues to shift, with a 15% annual growth in test outsourcing the current trend.

This year, iqnite Australia dives deep into what is driving these changes, and examines the implications for both individual software quality practitioners and organisations wanting to manage their ICT risk in a rapidly evolving market.

iqnite 2014 Australia will be seeking presentation from people working in software testing, business analysis, project management, performance and operations management, and portfolio management on the following topics:

  • Innovations in software testing in the context of Continuous Delivery and DevOps.
  • Monitoring quality in production, especially in the cloud
  • Case studies of organisational change impacting software quality – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the transformational
  • Case studies of IT governance, software quality assurance, and managing organisational responsibility in complex vendor engagement projects
  • Innovations in software testing efficiency and scalability through technology or organisational change
  • Experience reports of agile and iterative testing methodologies in practice, with a focus on enabling velocity and sustainable quality
