Ensure GDPR compliance for its software products so that Haufe Group customers can operate their business in accordance with GDPR regulations.
Most discussions regarding regulations, especially the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), focus on specific business and legal obligations, but they often ignore the impact that regulations place on the software development lifecycle. A critical step in the process is ensuring that requirements are clear and concise. Haufe Group needs to blend the definition of business needs with iterative agile delivery, and help its customers accelerate the GDPR implementation.
With six key software development sites, and over 500 DevOps engineers working on product development, GDPR compliance was a huge issue for Haufe Group, as Andreas Reusch, Test Architect, Products & Applications, Haufe Group, explains further: “We leveraged our consulting services to translate the official GDPR regulations into product requirements. We then used this to start the discussions with our individual software product owners to do a gap analysis and determine by product what requirements had to be implemented to achieve GDPR compliance. We needed an automated solution to help us capture these requirements and guide them through the software testing process.”
