            TESTING TECHNOLOGY VS. TESTERS' REQUIREMENTS

    Technology for testing and automated solutions have grown remarkably
in the past decade. But the question is still before us -- do we have the
support from technology that we need?  Has technology solved the right
problems? Is the technology accessible enough to today's tester? What are
the pitfalls of using such technology? This year, we will be looking at
the experiences with various aspects of testing technology ? some
successful, and some not.

    We look forward to having you share your experiences and learn from
others. I look forward to seeing you there.

Chair
