Software developers should eye on software testing to ensure a better rate of success in their projects, according to experts addressing the inaugural “Hong Kong Software Quality Assurance Conference” organized by the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) on 18 August 2009

Speaking at the Conference's opening ceremony, Mr Edmund Sung, Director (Business Consulting) of HKPC, said: “Software testing is an essential step in software development. However, it is very often not done adequately which results in project failures or system not being fully functional. With systems delivered to the end-users loaded with bugs, extra efforts are necessary to fix the problems.”

He said: “In order to improve the project success rate, quality enhancement is essential in every stage of all software development projects. To this end, organizations are urged to establish an internal Quality Assurance mechanism.”

Highlighting HKPC's efforts to assist software companies to implement good practices, Mr Sung said the Conference served as the first step to re-focus the industry on software quality and software process improvement.

Under the theme of “Improving Quality through Software Testing”, the Conference comprises a seminar and technical workshops. The opening ceremony was officiated by Mr Stephen Mak, Deputy Government Chief Information Officer of the HKSAR Government.
