Session Keynote: Digital Transformation: A Catalyst for Changing the Embedded Development Paradigm
Whether you believe that IoT is just hype, that Industry 4.0 will never happen, or that AI is just a fad, the recurring theme that weaves each of these narratives together is the relentless drive towards digital transformation seen across industries. The longevity of digital transformation as a business theme highlights some underlying needs which are yet to be fully realized. This session will outline how the following industry shifts, which are being driven by digital transformation, are requiring a change in the way embedded systems are developed: • Fixed function to flexible systems • Automated devices to autonomous systems • Hardware-centric to software-defined everything It will also examine how the embedded domain can start leveraging the advances seen in the IT domain to unlock more efficiency, innovation, and affordability in the way embedded systems are developed, where issues such as system performance and reliability, costs, resource and timing constraints, intolerance of failures or downtime, and safety needs, all place very specific requirements on how systems are built and deployed.
