Application lifecycle management (ALM) business best practices
Innovation has become an exercise of advancing embedded systems to stay ahead in the highly competitive automotive industry. While opening up great new opportunities, integration of software into mechatronics also presents unprecedented challenges to development teams. As different software and hardware components must be seamlessly fused to ensure functional safety and compliance, previously siloed teams must suddenly coordinate their development efforts in a dynamic ecosystem spanning the globe. But most collaborators don’t have the unified tooling environment necessary to get them on the same page at the same time. Resulting disconnects show increasingly devastating impact, shaking the industry with new records in product failures, recalls, legal sanctions, loss in market position and associated cost explosions.
