Issue certificates on April 22, 2010
We would like to invite you for an event where four leading players in the Dutch ICT market receive a software product certificate of TÜViT.
The certificate indicates that the certified product has a good maintainability and is future proof.
In May 2009 the first certificates were issued to KLM, KAS BANK, Rabobank and ProRail. On Thursday, April 22, 2010 we will issue four new software product certificates to:
- Ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken en koninkrijkrelaties, Agentschap BPR
- Ordina Finance Solutions
- Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie Nederland (SIDN)
- GlobalCollect (International Payment Services)
It will be an interesting event because of the visibility of the pace in which the quality mark "TÜViT Trusted Product Maintainability" develops. During the election of The Most Innovative ICT Vendor Award Jury President Hennie Wesseling, former CIO of TNT, rated our service as follow: "In the future such standardization of software would be able to be very important. It fits in the further development of the ICT industry".
The program is as follows:
|16.00||Arrival & registration|
|Ronald Kasteel, CEO, Ordina|
|16.20||Certification of software into IT contracts|
|Bob Cordemeyer, a lawyer specialised in IT law, Cordemeyer & Slager Advocaten|
|For both suppliers and clients certification of software is a wise choice. Automation projects frequently fail. Poor project management, poor communication and legal failure factors are often the cause. By monitoring the technical and legal aspects of a customized project during usage, ending in certification of the software, you can prevent many problems. The supplier gets an objective measurement of his performance, which of course is commercially interesting, and the client knows that good quality is delivered.|
|16.40||What does the certificate mean to KAS BANK?|
|Pim van der Horst, CIO, KAS BANK|
|Pim van der Horst, early adoptor of this certificate, will give a presentation about what the certificate has meant to him, and KAS BANK, last year.|
|17.00||The significance & future of certification|
|1. Dr. Sutter, Division Manager Certification, TÜViT|
|2. Dr. Visser, Head of Research, SIG|
|17.30||Award certificates by Mr. Sommer, CEO, TÜViT|
|The companies explain why software product certification is important to them.|
|17.50||Questions followed by a drink.|
It is SIG's tradition to organise the certification event at the office of one of the recipients of the certificate. This time Ordina shall be the host and provides her office:
Ordina Finance Solutions
3430 JC Nieuwegein
The certificates are developed by SIG, in close cooperation with TÜV Informationstechnik (TÜViT). It is grounded in the international standard for Software Quality: ISO / IEC 9126. After evaluation by SIG, TÜViT can certify the software product and grant the quality mark TÜViT Trusted Product Maintainability.
