Software is het DNA van onze samenleving geworden
Dankzij software werkt inmiddels bijna elk apparaat, elk proces en elke toepassing in ons dagelijks leven. Het maakt ook werken en ondernemen makkelijker en interessanter. En we gaan ervan uit dat het allemaal nog sneller, eenvoudiger en veiliger wordt. Dat is een uitdaging voor veel bedrijven en organisaties.

Software is het DNA van onze samenleving geworden
Dankzij software werkt inmiddels bijna elk apparaat, elk proces en elke toepassing in ons dagelijks leven. Het maakt ook werken en ondernemen makkelijker en interessanter. En we gaan ervan uit dat het allemaal nog sneller, eenvoudiger en veiliger wordt. Dat is een uitdaging voor veel bedrijven en organisaties.

Softwarekwaliteit moet nog een inhaalslag maken
Om aan de vraag te kunnen voldoen, is veel software in de loop van de tijd ongecontroleerd doorontwikkeld. Waardoor het voor organisaties duur is in onderhoud, weinig flexibel en kwetsbaar. Zo wordt software eerder een belemmering dan aanjager van betere bedrijfsresultaten.

SIG gelooft dat software beter kan
Daarmee bedoelen we: software die organisaties helpt hun doelen te realiseren. Die meebeweegt met de veranderende wensen van de markt en de samenleving. Daarom werken we aan betere softwarekwaliteit, wereldwijd. We willen de kwaliteit van de softwareindustrie verbeteren door bij te dragen aan internationale standaarden. We weten hoe we softwarekwaliteit moeten meten. En we weten hoe organisaties méér uit software kunnen halen.
