Specialist Interest Groups

BASDA Specialist Interest Groups (SIG) are driven by members as centres of action to address key issues affecting the software industry and its customers.

BASDA are always ready to listen to members to help drive debate in new areas with a view to setting up new interest groups or working parties.

BASDA are committed to developing the association to bring maximum value to its existing members and further extend its reach and effectiveness, appealing to small, medium and large organisations alike.
