Embedded systems and software are driving the new-age lifestyle, encompassing various aspects of modern life. As hardware becomes powerful and cost effective, embedded software in devices expands its footprint in various areas such as consumer electronics, transportation, medicine, and manufacturing.
Cable and telecom networks today support higher bandwidths – it is now easier to facilitate a rich multimedia experience on consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, personal navigation, and set-top boxes. These cloud-enabled devices have integrated to act as a one-stop ecosystem, facilitating a host of new solutions in various verticals such as energy, healthcare, automotive, security, point of sale, and home automation.
In the era of rapid convergence, new-age products demand extreme reliability at the lowest possible costs and in the shortest possible timeline. Device manufacturers face some challenges in the following areas:
Adoptability: Responding to customer needs rapidly is one of the major challenges for device manufacturers, involving rapid adoption of new technologies, standards, and new geographies.
Cost adjustment: The costs of supporting multiple customers worldwide, sustaining and evolving the software to the next generation and creating tools for customer and developer support are regularly on the rise.
Short life cycle: Products and technologies are getting obsolete in shorter time spans, leading to shorter shelf life. On the upside, this improves business opportunity and engagements but, at the same time, it causes serious engineering and technology disruptions.
Time to market: Cutthroat competition among multiple players in the same industry and overlapping spaces creates enormous pressure on time-to-market for all products.
