    Software quality is like beauty
    Sabine Radomski, Software Engineering, Hochschule für Telekommunikation

Make software quality visible with a seal of approval

The progressive digitization places high requirements on the Quality of software. But technical debts integrated in software during the project process and not paid return by maintenance. A vicious circle, driven by high cost pressure, leads to bad software. The Customers are adjust to use bad software and they are don't want to pay for quality. The savings delusion opens the door for cybercrime. With a seal can be awarded good software and the mature customer can consciously choose how much he want to invest in quality and security.

    Application Modernization for OpenVMS Customers
    Brett Cameron, Director of Applications and Open Source, VMS Software Inc.

Many OpenVMS users run large, complex, business-critical custom written software applications that have served them exceptionally well for many years and continue to do so, but for whatever reason these applications now need to interoperate and exchange data with other external systems via new industry-standard mechanisms, or applications might require a new or alternative user interface to bring them into line with other systems. The options available are to replace the existing OpenVMS-based application environment or to modernize (“rejuvenate”) it in some way so that it can operate in the new technology environment and continue to serve the business, potentially adding even greater business value. In this talk, the Brett will introduce the topic of application modernization and will discuss some of the different approaches and methods than can be taken to modernize custom OpenVMS application environments. Finally, Brett will introduce a set of services that can be provided by VMS Software Inc. to help OpenVMS users to modernize their application environment and retain their considerable and valuable investment in OpenVMS technology, so that it to take advantage of new software technologies and better interact with other systems.
