TI Catalysts and Inhibitors for Momentum in the Software Product Line Industry

K1 software product line industry adoption
AB For Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) to become a standard and accepted practice in the industry, it must be widely embraced by large corporations, major software tool and service vendors, industry analysts, and technology press. We have seen steady but slow progress in all of these areas over the past few years. What can we do to better control or influence the future trends? Technology adoption at the industry scale is about building and sustaining momentum. Through a feedback loop comprising successes and failures, credible validation and invalidation, credible communication, leaps of faith, competitive opportunities, perceptions about perceptions, and so forth, momentum is gained or lost. Catalysts and inhibitors in the loop ultimately determine whether momentum will accelerate or be dampened. In this panel, we bring together an esteemed group of industry leaders from the key areas that impact momentum of new technology adoption, all of whom have been involved in the early stages of the industry's SPLE momentum. In this panel we will search for insights across a broad industry spectrum into the current catalysts and inhibitors, as well as opportunities for the Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) community to positively contribute to the momentum.
