Transformation of Test Organizations: The Rise of “Testing as a Service”

The concept of a central testing group is not always the best solution for the users of testing services; it can result in inefficiencies and can be too inflexible for stakeholder needs. One way to approach these challenges is to adopt new organizational structures for testing and to provide "Testing as a Service" (TaaS) on a flexible "pay per use" (ppu) basis. In this presentation, the benefits of TaaS are explained and an approach to transforming testing organizations is described so these organizations can benefit from TaaS with pay per use.

At national level, he is leader of the  Advanced Level and Expert Level working groups for the GTB, who are responsible for the creation of the syllabi in German.
