Embedded Software: Coming out of the shadows
The world we live in is not quite what it seems. The car you drive is not simply a mashed-up fusion of wheels and motor parts, nor are airplanes merely fuselages with engines attached. Behind-the-scenes lies the backbone of modern technology: data.
Data is manipulated, applications are launched, and sensors tirelessly capture a myriad of information generated on a non-stop basis. Our world is powered by data... and there's no turning back. Predictive analytics solutions may enjoy the limelight, but the true star of the show is embedded software. These are the applications that breathe life and give direction to raw mechanical actions & processes.
The actual development process of embedded systems, however, is currently experiencing a renaissance of sorts. Next generation Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platforms now enable IT companies to scale without limits while transforming team collaboration. As a result, companies are re-thinking their approach to embedded software development. In short, ALM is a game-changer.
Application Lifecycle Management: A strategic decision
In our new eBook, Accelerating and Scaling Innovation, we take a look at how implementing ALM tools empowers organizations to realize a holistically integrated approach that includes all stages of mature lifecycle processes, from defining requirements to maintenance services.
Complex products, such as medical devices and automobiles rely on embedded software to perform highly specific tasks. While Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platforms typically handle the development of hardware products, there has been a gap when trying to address the complexities of embedded software development. This gap is now being filled by next generation ALM solutions.
Implementing an ALM solution is not a tool-centric tactical choice. In today's competitive market, implementing an ALM solution is a strategic decision aimed at increasing your company's development efficiency and, consequently, your bottom line.
