Software is Like a Parachute. If it Doesn’t Work, You’re Screwed

Join techUK and Testing Solutions Group Ltd on 06 February 2018 for a talk on Software Escrow.

Technology has revolutionised the world we live in. Computer software is capable of speeding up processes, improving quality, and enabling products and services to be delivered more quickly and cost-effectively.

Because of the pace of change and the cost of advancing and improving computer systems, most businesses now rely on third parties to supply and maintain their software systems. However, this reliance on third parties involves risk that needs careful management, particularly if the third party is responsible for the operation of mission-critical technology.
