The M2M Embedded Software team is excited to be heading to
Nashville to attend Agile2013 (#agile2013). The growing adoption of Agile methodologies
is one of the most important developments in the software lifecycle management solution market since VDC started covering it in 2000.
Despite origins in the enterprise/IT software development
world, iterative software development methods have also taken hold in the embedded
market. In fact, nearly 50% of embedded engineers we surveyed in 2012 used
Agile and Iterative methods.
As embedded systems continue to evolve, organizations still
relying on traditional development methodologies are struggling to keep pace
with their software content creation demands. Many of these OEMs are accustomed
to the traditional, serial development workflows especially common within
safety-critical application classes. However, updates to several software standards, such as DO-178C, have provided the embedded industry with
better clarification and more guidelines around the new development techniques.
As a result of these pressures and advances, we expect iterative development
methodologies will continue to gain new adherents in the embedded market.
Hope to see you there
