The QA Vector Awards 2018

QA Financial is pleased to announce that entry for our new QA Vector Awards is now open.

Based upon QA Vector Research analysis of each submission, the QA Vector Awards 2018 are the only awards dedicated to software quality assurance, testing, delivery and IT risk management at banks and other financial services firms.

What we’re looking for

The winners of our awards will have demonstrated:

  • Innovation in response to customer demand and market opportunities, and in response to regulatory and compliance requirements.
  • Innovation in the application of new technologies, such as automation, AI and machine learning.
  • The expert execution of quality assurance in the delivery of apps, software development projects, software products or technology platforms.

How to enter

To enter the awards, click here.

We want to hear about projects completed in 2017, or due for completion in the first quarter of 2018.

The entry process is simple. Just tell us about your project by March 30th, 2018, in the form provided. To encourage submissions, we do not ask for exhaustive detail of your project at this initial entry stage, so a 500-word description will be adequate.

Please focus submissions on what you consider to be the key innovations and benchmarks for improved standards of quality assurance in the project(s) or product(s) in question.

You can enter your firm for as many categories you wish, free of charge, but please remember to complete one form per each category entered.

Short-listed applicants will be contacted in April 2018.

All awards will be decided independently by the QA Financial editorial based upon QA Vector Research analysis.

All information submitted will be treated in confidence. However, we will ask winners for on-the-record interviews and will be seeking independent verification and on-the-record comments from clients cited.

Our awards finalists will be announced in June 2018 and all of our awards citations will be published at
