A delegation of Borland customers including the Victorian government and local system integrators will travel to Singapore to utilize the company's new Enterprise Quality Centre (EQC) which officially opened today.
Borland ANZ managing director, Mark Wilkin, said the centre will be used by customers from around the world as a software centre of excellence.
"The consequences of poor software quality are well known, yet quality is still often treated as an afterthought - something addressed late in the development lifecycle," Wilkin said.
"With the creation of the EQC, Borland is showcasing how quality is a shared responsibility across teams and throughout the software delivery lifecycle.
"By inviting customers to see how we're utilizing our own open application lifecycle management solutions, we're helping them experience first-hand the real-world benefits of a broad set of integrated ALM technologies and a comprehensive approach to software quality."
Wilkin said the facility will emphasize innovation and collaboration - helping to break down barriers between geographically dispersed business, development and QA teams.
The facility will also represent an active "proof of concept" for Borland's Open ALM approach, supporting quality testing practices across multiple platforms, tools and processes.
Customers will be able to demo and cost-effectively pilot and evaluate ALM technologies, product integrations and implementations.
