The well-known conference “Software Quality Days” will take place in Germany for the first time since its foundation 13 years ago: From May 23 to 25, 2023, experts on software quality from all over Europe will meet in Munich. This time mgm will be present with a strong participation in lectures in the disciplines “DevSecOps” and “Quality Assurance during Development” as well as an information booth.
The Software Quality Days (SWQD) are, according to their own statements, Europe’s leading conference for software quality throughout the entire software lifecycle. Over a total of three days, participants can expect a mixture of current scientific presentations and practice-oriented tutorials (workshops and lectures). The program will be complemented by the trade exhibition with various suppliers from the industry. The focus of the event is on professional development, the exchange of ideas and networking.
The theme of this year’s symposium, which will alternate between Vienna and Munich in the future: Higher Software Quality through Zero Waste Development
This year mgm will also share its expertise with the interested congress audience for the first time – with three renowned experts and a booth in the exhibition.
The DevSecOps cross-functional team – Our path to secure software through automation and accountability
Robin Herrmann will kick things off with his presentation on the DevSecOps cross-functional team at mgm. In his practice-oriented talk, the IT security consultant will vividly describe how the company found its way to secure software through automation and responsibilities. “Unfortunately, when implementing DevSecOps, people often forget that in addition to choosing the right tools, it should also be about developing the company’s culture. In my talk, I will take stock of the last few years and summarize our findings into simple lessons learned along with resulting actions,” said the software security expert.
Robin will address the following questions in his talk:
- Why is integrating automated security testing into the DevOps pipeline an important building block for the best possible software?
- What processes has mgm gone through over the last few years?
- Why was a DevSecOps cross-functional team established and what are its responsibilities?
- Which cultural and structural changes were mandatory for a successful DevSecOps process at mgm?

Target group: DevOps experts, architects, QA experts and software developers
In their joint presentation, computer scientist Lilia Gargouri and Dr. Martin Varendorff from the Quality Team will discuss how they set up quality measures in the development team with the so-called mgm Quality Landscape and accompanied them with user-centered acceptance tests and end-2-end tests. “The test management tools used so far did not offer the necessary flexibility with regard to the different customer projects and their internal processes. Against this background, we developed our own tool for test management based on mgm’s low-code framework A12,” explain the two experts for technical quality assurance.
