As software eats the world, it’s important to recognize the impact of poor quality software – and the threat it can pose to your business. Apple’s step of identifying 2018 as the year of software quality is a call for other organizations – including yours – to do the same.

Indeed, software has become critical to corporate success. It’s more than just ‘a nice to have;’ it’s a key cornerstone to every company’s existence. So how can organizations meet this software quality challenge? BrowserStack’s COO Shailesh Rao discusses key ways in a new Test Talk podcast that posted on Monday, Sept. 10th.

TestTalks is the weekly podcast hosted by Joe Colantonio, who was earlier this year named the top Automated Testing Influencer to follow on social media by DZone. TestTalks covers news found in the testing space, reviews books about automation and speaks with some of the thought leaders in the test automation field.

One of the key takeaways in Shailesh’s TestTalk interview from earlier this week is the importance of quality as a major guiding principle for your business. This goes beyond software to encompass quality in the people you hire, the culture you create and in the processes use for software creation. Make this mindset a habit for your organization that becomes second nature to all that you do. It will translate into how you approach development and how your software teams produce code.
