Tom Cagley's Practical Software Quality and Testing Conference Presentation


DCG Software Value, a global provider of software analytics, software quality management, and Agile support services, presented at the 2016 Practical Software Quality and Testing (PSQT) Conference in San Diego from August 14-19.

Tom Cagley, Vice President of Consulting and Agile Practice Lead at DCG Software Value, gave three presentations at this year's conference.

His first presentation, "Discover the Quality of Your Testing Process," focused on the Test Maturity Model integration (TMMi), a framework for software testing. During the presentation, Tom shared a case study to discuss how the TMMi appraisal process works, providing attendees with a tool to complete a high-level assessment of their organization.

His second presentation, "Scaling Agile Testing Using the TMMi," was part of the Agile track. Tom outlined the TMMi framework and provided a process for using environmental, technical, and project context to effectively integrate testing into an Agile development environment, measuring the effectiveness of the process.

His final presentation was also a part of the Agile track. "Impact of Agile Risk Management on Software Quality" discussed how to implement best practices for mitigating risk in an Agile environment.

Tom was very pleased with the outcome of his presentations, expressing his ability to connect with the audience on each of the topics. He hopes that his contribution to the conference will further develop company's abilities to consistently and efficiently produce high quality software that works as expected and benefits the bottom line of the company.

The 2015 CMMI Global Congress

CMMI Global Congress

After a successful (and fun!) time at the CMMI EMEA Conference in Europe, we're now headed to Seattle for the CMMI Institute Global Congress! For DCG, this is a must-attend event - and it has been for years!

We're excited to connect with others in the CMMI community from around the world to see what's working (or not) and to share our own tips and experiences.

If you'll be at the event, please stop by our booth in the exhibition hall. We'll be talking about how to combine CMMI with Agile and lean for a competitive advantage and to reap the most value from your software.

Also, don't miss Tom Cagley's presentation on Agile risk management. Tom will discuss how to combine Agile and CMMI-based risk management techniques to increase the robustness of an Agile implementation without adding overhead and while further dampening risk.

If you can't make it out to Seattle, never fear! We are sharing Tom's presentation just for you!

CMMI EMEA: Agile Risk Management

 

CMMI EMEA

We really enjoyed the latest conference from UNICOM and the CMMI Institute. CMMI EMEA, the ALM conference and the DevOps Summit all combined to bring together a great group of speakers, exhibitors and attendees. The synergy between the topics kept the schedule interesting - and it made it easy to pick and choose which presentations to attend based on which topics were most relevant to an individual's needs and interests.

We met a lot of people at our booth in the exhibition hall (thanks for stopping by!), and we had a great turnout for Tom Cagley's presentation, Agile Risk Management, which was part of the CMMI track of the conference.

What was it all about? Tom's presentation discussed that fact that Agile techniques have not magically erased risk from software projects (we all wish!).

However, Agile is inherently less risky, assuming you actually implement and practice Agile techniques. Tom spoke about how to combine Agile and CMMI-based risk management techniques in order to increase the robustness of an Agile implementation and mitigate risk. Interested? Download it! That's right, we know not everyone could attend the conference, so we're offering up his presentation for download.

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
