ROQ CIO Spotlight – Mastering the Art of Digital Disruption

Andrew P. Ayres MBA

I am currently Director for UK & Ireland at ROQ having previously held roles with information technology consultancies in the UK, Europe and the Middle East - working closely with Boards of Directors, CIOs and their teams to make digital transformation a reality. My focus now is on highlighting the strategic importance of software quality in the digital age, publically advocating the ‘shift-left’ agenda and assisting global organisations to deliver real business value via sound testing and QA practices that deliver results, first time around. In my view, this domain area is going to be a huge focus for businesses - especially as software and the information housed within it - is already the beating heart of the digital enterprise, becoming yet more powerful when robots and semi-autonomous machines form a larger part of the workforce.
