XBOSoft CEO, Philip Lew, offers insights into software testing and QA trends and advances as a frequent writer and event speaker. His most recent article for IT Professional, China’s IT Challenges and Opportunities: A Personal View, provides a uniquely personal perspective from an industry thought leader on the state of Asia tech.

Lew’s article, published in IEEE’s IT Professional Issue No.06 - Nov.-Dec. (2015 vol.17), observes how history and tradition, rising costs and competition have played a role in the IT sector in China today. Calling upon his experiences as a software expert, business leader, entrepreneur and educator, he explores how government, social mores, education, economics and demographics have helped shape China’s IT workforce – as well as impact the country’s ability to effectively compete as an IT presence on an international scale. Lew looks at China’s youth culture and its relation to the country’s four major IT companies -- Alibaba, Xiaomi, Tencent, and Baidu – and the limitations as well as the future potential of IT in China.

“The Chinese realize that to compete internationally without a cost advantage, they must win on quality and expertise,” says Lew. “(They) are nurturing their IT industry to compete on an international level through education reform and policies favorable to high-tech companies that foster innovation and entrepreneurship. Despite these formidable efforts, they still have many hurdles to overcome.”
