Continuous Software Engineering: An Introduction
Book chapter, 2014
Software-intensive industries are experiencing an unprecedented evolution of, among others, business models, architectures, ways of working, tooling, and deployment. This transformation allows companies to respond much quicker to changes in the market and to build solutions that much more accurately align with customer needs. The Nordic software-intensive systems industry recognized this challenge and partnered with academia to form the Software Center. The role of the Software Center is to significantly accelerate the rate of adoption of these new approaches at the partner organizations. In this chapter, we discuss the industry trends, introduce the Software Center, and provide an overview of the remainder of the book. This book presents the core results of the first phase (2011–2013) of the Software Center.
