INDIA SOFTWARE PRODUCT MANAGEMENT SUMMIT
MEET THE COMMUNITY OF EXPERTS & PROFESSIONALS
As Prof. Rahul De’ Says “Of late, Indian IT firms and start-ups are focusing strongly on developing software products, both for Indian as well as international markets. Having a leading industry association hold a summit in Bengaluru will go a long way in enhancing these efforts.”
The global Software Product Management Summit (SPM) is a forum for experts from the industry and academia to exchange insights and best practices. India’s growth as a start-up nation and as the powerhouse for some of the top-notch software products in the world are the reasons why ISPMA chose the country as the venue for the SPM summit.
ISPMA (International Software Product Management Association) is a non-profit association of experts, companies, research institutes, and practitioners with the goal to foster software product management excellence across industries. The India Chapter of ISPMA was launched in Bangalore on June 18, 2017 with an objective to bring education to Indian software product managers on global best practices, and to create a meeting point for the Indian SPM community. Hans-Bernd Kittlaus is the chairman of ISPMA e.v and Haragopal Mangipudi is the chairperson of ISPMA India.
