I support product marketing at CAST Software. We are a software company passionate about Quality. It’s kind of arcane, I know, but it’s amazing how quality impacts everything from how things work to customer happiness to the value of your company. I’m fortunate to be able to talk to a lot of people about quality and their strategies and challenges managing it. This blog is my effort to translate what I hear from the market. Please feel free to chime in. Hope to hear from you soon!
