Vector Software Launches Webinar Series to Advance Software Test and Certification

Software Engineering Professionals Who Attend Will Benefit From Proven Best Practices and Efficient Processes for Compliant, High Quality Software That Is an Asset to the Organization

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2015) - Vector Software, the world's leading provider of innovative software solutions for robust embedded software quality, announced today its webinar series to help organizations optimize software test and certification. The need for better quality and compliant software has never been greater. Software engineering management and staff will learn tools and techniques necessary for higher quality software that meets regulatory compliance and increases profitability.

Event One - Five Ways to Turbocharge Your Software Testing
Join Vector Software's Sr. Field Application Engineer, Tim Schneider as he discusses ways for faster, better software testing including test automation, change-based testing, testing applications in multiple configurations, massively parallel testing, and analyzing code for problem areas.

Event Two - How to Achieve Stress-Free Certification
In this webinar with Vector's partner CRITICAL Software, certification expert João Esteves will provide technical guidance on regulatory compliance. This webinar is key for organizations faced with regulatory mandates for Avionics DO-178B/C and DO-278; Automotive ISO 26262 and MISRA; Industrial Controls IEC 61508; Medical Devices FDA and IEC 62304; and Railway CENELEC. Esteves will provide insights into the tools and methods needed to effectively comply with these standards. The webinar will look at defining system, high-level, and low-level requirements; using software modeling; characterizing software "parameters" to avoid certification rework; and establishing an effective, scalable and compliant-friendly software test infrastructure.

Event Three - How to Get Your Team to Speak the Language of Test for Software Quality
Engineering management will benefit from this webinar where Vector Software's CTO, John Paliotta will provide thought leadership on the importance of software testing early in the software development life cycle and how organizations can implement a software development process that spreads testing responsibilities across the entire organization and life cycle to improve software quality. Paliotta will also outline how quality requires the mastery of DevOps (continuous integration, testing, and release), and while software testing has traditionally been viewed as an "expense," done right, tests become an asset that pays dividends for years while improving customer satisfaction and brand value.
