Expert opinion

The preparation of expert opinions requires a high level of expertise, accuracy and experience. Expert opinions are often used for quality assurance, but they are also used in disputes between two or more parties. Especially in the field of computer science, it is a great challenge for experts to remain constantly familiar with the latest technologies and to penetrate the subject matter so deeply that, if necessary, they are able to assess the results. judicial decisions can also be based on an expert opinion. The combination of many years of project experience in a wide range of areas and research and teaching activities provides an excellent basis for the role of expert.

Software and IT assessments are used at various points in software engineering. In principle, expert opinions always serve to determine and document the condition of a particular structure. This can be a document, source code, data expression, user interface, website, app, computer game or any form of digital content in general. Regardless of whether the property to be appraised was created internally, commissioned externally, purchased or found – appraisals are a neutral, objective way of assessing and documenting the quality of a property at a specific point in time. Decisions can then be made on the basis of an expert opinion. If defects are discovered, for example, they can then be rectified. Expert reports can – if desired – contain recommendations and specific optimization measures, so that the client of an expert report not only receives documentation of the current status of the property to be assessed, but specific measures are also developed with which the current status can be optimized.

Appraisers are naturally subject to a special requirements profile. In addition to the technical qualifications already mentioned, a sound knowledge of the current legal situation, unrestricted objectivity and experience in preparing expert opinions that even people without an IT background can understand conclusively are also required.
