Holds roundtable on ‘Nigeria’s software industry optimized’
Discussion to be facilitated by Adekunle Ajiboye
Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria (ISPON) has stressed that to develop client friendly and winning software applications, roles and skill sets need to be clearly defined and adhered to.
The Institute, in a statement at the disposal of TechEconomy.ng, noted that Nigeria’s IT sector with few success stories and several ill-conceived, designs, developed and delivered software applications, is at a critical junction and begs for a radical overhaul and approach.
This was also the reflections of ISPON President, Dr. Yele Okeremi during a recent interview with TechEconomy.ng.
Currently, ISPON is saying that: “The devastating consequences for our Software Practitioners, is evident in end user’s preference for foreign developed and supported software which is not sustainable and acceptable especially considering the origin nations of the imported software”.
Thus, to develop client friendly and winning software applications, roles and skill sets need to be clearly defined and adhered to. Software Applications should be developed to address “Validated Customer Pains” and not “Build it and they will come”!
To this end, the Institute has disclosed plans to hold a three-hour roundtable (discussion) that centers on ‘Nigeria’s software industry optimized’.
The event, TechEconomy.ng gathered, will hold on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 in Lagos. See flyer below:
“The breadth and depth of a paradigm shift in Software Development for Nigeria by Nigerians will be presented with the hope that it will be discussed beyond the interaction”, the statement reads in part.
