About the Talk (slides)

There is no doubt that quality is also contemporary business paradigm for ICT. It can be observed as multi-layer problem – as quality in production of software equipment, as quality in providing ICT services, as quality of ICT activities and also as ability of utilization the ICT potential of particular country, therefore Croatia also. Do we, as members of ICT profession, understand our profession, what makes it, how it managed to develop so far? Can profession quality be measured, what it depends on, what it needs to be done considering enhancement of its current level and is validation, verification and testing field independent from this questions?

As participant of round table, I will try to answer some of these questions. Issues will be cascading from utilization knowledge (quality) of our national ICT potentials to quality in production and usage of software equipment. In seeking questions to these answers, relevant models of ICT profession development will be shown with experience from Faculty of Organization and Informatics in University of Zagreb.
