The agile approach is unique in that it focuses on the important aspects of the development process: the people and the artifacts - software and hardware. Learn how Agile encourages developers to be more iterative, team-oriented, self-improving and customer focused.
This paper introduces practical approaches to Agile focused on core principles and practices and shows how they improve project results for embedded systems development. Agile methods are a cohesive set of concepts, principles and practices to address the challenges of software development.
This white paper describes software as the invisible thread that links product parts into an intelligent whole. It examines software delivery for smart products and strategies for evolving software development into a business process. Agile development has become a cornerstone of most software development organizations. Marked by iterative processes that deliver incremental value over time, agile development has enabled organizations to manage software complexity more effectively and to improve quality and time to market compared with previous development processes.

In the 1990s, client/server was the predominant architecture used to build business applications. The applications had rich functionality, were responsive, and satisfied users' needs. Client/server worked in a time where the only networks were the ones owned and controlled by the enterprise and the only user base was internal.
This brief examines how application virtualization can compress the development and test cycle, accelerating time-to-market, while reducing risk and complexity. This brief highlights the impact of centralized command and control of application deployment and execution.
Competitive pressures, increased marketplace demands and the constant need to reduce expenses have only intensified the demands put on companies to develop and deploy their software applications quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Read about the key barriers companies must cross as they attempt to streamline their software delivery processes and learn how to bridge the gap between development and operations in this paper.

The paper will explore the differences between smart-client and thin-client mobile architectures. It will then examine the details of common smart-client architectures, including what type of back-end systems they integrate with, the types of devices they support, how data is managed within the architecture, and development languages that can be used to build the application.

Today, many organizations are increasingly reliant on software application development to deliver them competitive edge. Simultaneously, they are progressively opening up their computer networks to business partners, customers and suppliers and making use of next-generation programming languages and computing techniques to provide a richer experience for these users. However, hackers are refocusing their attention on the vulnerabilities and flaws contained in those applications.

Outsourcing is a strategy increasingly being used by organizations to reduce costs and increase value. Outsourcing, however, has its risks. As organizations look to push out more of their custom software application development needs to outsourcing partners, careful planning is required in terms of building stringent software security requirements into contracts and creating a process and metrics to ensure that those requirements are met. This report examines outsourcing practices from 200 of the largest organizations in the UK and the US and provides pointers as to how the most experienced outsourcers are putting in place effective processes to drive the risk out of outsourcing.

This white paper describes five practical steps that you can take to make your development process more predictable and reliable. By following his five steps, Paul maintains that you can build better software more quickly with less cost and less risk.
This white paper highlights Cenzic’s recommendation of a process of continuous assessment for applications in development and production environments -- a process that can equally apply to Intranet and public facing applications alike. Continuous testing can now be easily and safely done in a virtualized environment; no longer putting production web applications at risk. Companies can now easily and quickly, add vulnerability testing to their list of activities for all of their Web applications including production applications. Using a testing methodology across a company’s Web application portfolio will significantly enhance the security of all Web applications.
This paper explores trends past, current, and future in the mashup space and surveys the types of tools used to build and distribute mashups. The goal is to develop a set of criteria for the reader to use when evaluating mashup platforms for the development of business applications. Where appropriate, analogies to existing technologies and methodologies are employed.

Network management systems must adapt to meet the requirements of next generation networks. For example, a user interfaces may need to be refreshed with a state-of-the-art Web interface or support for the NETCONF protocol may be required to help customers deploy scalable networks. Adding functionality and integrating with existing applications and data stores has multiple trade-offs in terms of development time and system efficacy.
