How Far Can You Go with Agile for Embedded Software?

With the proliferation of IoT and consumer demand for smarter homes, appliances, automobiles, and wearables, many traditional product-based manufacturing companies are now becoming embedded software companies. This means that the design and manufacturing of physical products is becoming more complex since it now requires the integration of the physical components of the product, the firmware, and the myriad software components these products contain. Historically, embedded software developers have lagged behind IT in the adoption of agile development practices, largely due to the requirement of developing for the target hardware. Anders Wallgren shares concrete tips and best practices used by some of the largest embedded and IoT manufacturers to adopt and scale agile methodologies to transform their business—in product design, development, test, and manufacturing. Learn how to uncover and remove bottlenecks to agile velocity downstream as well as how multi-domain continuous delivery helps accelerate innovation and product delivery.
