On one of my newsfeed recently an article turned up claiming that cloud computing pushes the demand for quality forward. The referenced study is nothing less than the World Quality Report.
I was about to rant about this, and the flaws I see starting with the fact that with Capgemini, Sogeti and HP at least two cloud computing companies have paid for this study and report. But I figured that for the majority of my readers wouldn’t be necessary at all. You are probably aware that Quality is value to some person (Quality Software Management – Volume 1 Systems Thinking, Gerald M. Weinberg, Dorset House), and that the number three obstacle to innovation is the single solution belief – the belief that modern psychology has all the right answers (Becoming a Technical Leader, Gerald M. Weinberg, Dorset House).
So, go ahead, read the report for yourself, and leave me any flaws and/or supportive statements in the comments.
