The conference is designed to focus attention on emerging technologies and technical strategies for assuring quality, timeliness, trust, and affordability in current and future software-reliant systems. These technologies and strategies are vitally important to the missions of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), government agencies, and the industry that supports them. The SEI is a federally funded research and development center at Carnegie Mellon University dedicated to helping government and industry organizations acquire, develop, operate, and sustain software systems that are affordable, enduring, and trustworthy.
“Software increasingly defines the way we live our lives and conduct business,” said John Foreman, conference technical chair. “Innovations in software technology enable today's systems to deliver rich functionality, enhance productivity, spur innovation, and provide competitive advantage. However, the rapid evolution of software-reliant systems creates risks along with unprecedented technical and management challenges.”
The SEI designed the three-day SSC technical program to provide attendees with a wealth of practical, readily applicable information in the form of tutorials, presentations, panel discussions, and keynote addresses by distinguished experts in government, including
The first day of the conference will be devoted to tutorials on topics including cloud computing, DevOps and continuous delivery, data analytics, Agile development, secure coding, performance engineering, service-oriented architecture, security risk management, technical debt, evidence-based practices, and improved cost-estimating techniques.
Highlights of the technical program include
“This is the inaugural year of this event, which we plan to hold annually,” said Edward Deets, director of the SEI Software Solutions Division. “Our conference committee has assembled a program of stimulating keynotes and informative tutorials and presentations on highly relevant topics, and at an outstanding value to attendees.”
