S3M now in Korea

On September 22nd, 2011 I was invited to give a talk to the CIO conference in SEOUL, South Korea. You can see the slides of this presentation.

Recently Bankware Global has obtained the gold partner status and has obtained from ÉTS University in Montréal Canada the exclusive rights to offer consulting services to help Korean companies use the software maintenance maturity model (S3M). Bankware Global intends to offer services to the banking industry and join with IBM Korea to service the other market segments.

A first mandate will be conducted with Woori FIS one of the IT support organization of a large Korean Bank. I plan to support Bankware Global in their lead assessor training while they will apply the S3M principles to assess the maturity of Woori Bank FIS.
I will visit Korea again in November and January to help with the knowledge transfer for the introduction of our book concepts: Software Maintenance Management: Evaluation and Continuous Improvement in Korea.

I am full professor of Software Engineering at the University of Québec in Montréal, in its Software Engineering faculty. I have more than 30 years of Helthcare, Finance/Banking and Telecommunications IT industry experience, especially in Cloud Computing, Big Data, software acquisition, contracts, software quality assurance and business process management. I am more comfortable with open source, practical applications and technology transfer to industry.
Currently I concentrate on research projects. In the past I was the recipient of the ISO award for higher education in standardization in 2011, as well as the chair of the Software Engineering gratuate program and of the Software Engineering departement. I also published Software Engineering Books: Software Maintenance Improvement and Software Quality Assurance.
