Software development

Research content

Our research focuses on software engineering methods, processes, tools and architectures also including product and service proof-of-concepts, product development and their business impact evaluation. In fact, our research covers the complete lifecycle of software intensive systems development and run-time optimization.

A large number of software engineering technologies is available for various purposes. In order to select best possible technology one must have broad knowledge of existing technologies, how to adopt them, and about their usefulness and business potential in selected context.

Applications

Software engineering efficiency and quality are necessary in order to manage the complexity of development and to adopt joint systematic approach between partners throughout the product development chain. Our goal is to support our partners to produce high quality products into market rapidly and efficiently by applying the research results to development of software intensive systems and software based services.

Also, in order to identify software technology potential we offer proof-of-concept software solutions to non-ICT sectors. Our offerings include various business analyses and demonstrations for potential software solutions.

Future prospects

Amount of software and its complexity is further increasing due to constant increase in product functionality, smart networking, increased amount of data and services needed. Companies constantly seek cost-efficiency in their products and product development. By utilising best software engineering practices they may gain significant savings. In fact, correct technology choices for software intensive systems and services are critical in order for product to succeed in the market.

Also, in order to be able to respond to the ever increasing productivity and functionality demands, companies need to network with other companies to join their forces in developing the products. Efficient globally distributed software production requires that the different processes and cultures of the collaborating parties are taken into account. VTT has experience on the technologies that help in making global development work.

Resources

VTT has over 100 researchers in software engineering R&D. Our competence is based on long-time experience in software development methods, processes and architectures and we have ability to estimate business impacts of software technologies. Our research basis is over 15 years of expertise in software technologies and their implementation in industry.
