Businesses want the Internet of Things (IoT) in the workplace, and that means developing or adopting embedded software to enhance products. This new evolution means software quality is even more important in manufacturing, as more organizations want to release products with embedded software.
There will be 6.4 billion connected things in use worldwide, according to Gartner estimates in late 2015, a 30 percent increase from last year.
On Wednesday, April 20, our SVP Strategy & Business Development Stefano Rizzo will be presenting “The 4th Industrial Revolution and IoT Predictions: A Software Perspective" at Mobile Dev + Test " [LINK].
Good software is the key to success in IoT and the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) revolution that is focused on embedded technologies applied to nearly all consumer products and an increasing number of manufacturing production facilities. Stefano previously discussed the requirements to developing good software. [LINK]
Application lifecycle management (ALM) provides a better way to address new software complexities in your product lifecycle. The ability to manage requirements and track, trace, and link Work Items increases collaboration - reducing IT operational ability and lowering operating costs.
Using a solution such as Polarion ALM provides full end-to-end product lifecycle traceability, from requirements to code testing, verification, and validation.
IoT development provides new challenges in the development and testing of products driven by embedded software. Polarion Software looks forward to IoT Dev + Test next month in San Diego, California, and hope you’re able to join us.
Developing software for IoT is a challenge, and there are challenges in I4.0. Polarion and Vector Software recently hosted a webinar to discuss software challenges of embedded systems.
