2015 Index Seminars

The 2015 Planit Index seminars were attended by hundreds of representatives from the testing industry, with Planit Director of Testing, Graham Davis, providing insights into the state of the industry based on his own analysis of the latest Index.

"I have attended each year and I always find it interesting to see the changes. The presentation is always informative and it very clearly shows how businesses define testing. It gives me something to take back to senior management and show / teach them about the importance of testing."
