Embedded & IoT Device Development

iot Embedded & IoT Device Development If you are a developer of embedded devices, mobile systems, or a manufacturer of IoT-enabled products, you are most likely facing challenges that are fundamentally reshaping the way these industries work. Embedded development is a complex process, which is going to be further complicated by the new industrial revolution that the Internet of Things has brought about.

You may be working on products with long cycle times, products that combine parallel software and hardware development processes. You may need to develop several product variants globally to suit local needs, and it’s possible that you have to comply with the various standards and regulations that apply in different regions. You also need to thoroughly test and validate your products for safety and reliability before they are released to the market.

You may be using traditional Waterfall/V-Model methods for the development of hardware products, while your software developers are likely taking advantage of flexible Agile methodologies. You may be utilizing a custom Hybrid methodology to bring together hardware, software and service development in your IoT product lifecycle. Regardless of the processes used, you need to manage the entire product lifecycle (xLM) in an integrated, centralized manner.

codeBeamer ALM can help you achieve optimal efficiency in development, can greatly support your efforts to ensure traceability and visibility, achieve compliance, and could help you reduce audit costs.

Embedded Software Development

Among other features, codeBeamer offers enhanced collaboration, integration with major version control systems (Git, Subversion, Mercurial), and advanced change & issue management functionality to support software development. What’s more, its release planner allows you to freely combine Waterfall, Agile and Hybrid processes, and manage the entire product lifecycle in an integrated manner. Requirements, development and test management all come organically integrated, enabling you to ensure gapless traceability along the software development lifecycle.

IoT Development

Developing software and hardware together is a complicated task. But with the emergence of the Internet of Things, in order to stay competitive, you’ll need to face the challenges of adding connectivity to your products, and imbuing them with services that this IoT-connection enables. This further complicates the innovation and development of such products.

codeBeamer helps you manage complex processes, and integrate the data that sensors from IoT-enabled devices gather and transmit to your data centres. This greatly facilitates not only making sense of this sea of data, but also to build new services and products based on what all that data tells you. In addition to managing the entire product lifecycle (xLM) in an integrated manner, codeBeamer also allows you to dock your ALM into big data systems.

  • codeBeamer’s advanced workflow engine with Business Process Management capabilities allow you to connect processes and data across tools, enabling you to manage the development of complex products in an integrated manner.
  • Connect your ALM to big data systems. Extract meaningful data to fuel innovation.
  • If you’re involved in Android or other “embedded Linux” device development, using distributed version control (such as Git) is a bare necessity for you. codeBeamer supports advanced DVCS (distributed version control system) solutions: Git, Subversion and Mercurial are available and are fully integrated in the development process.
  • codeBeamer’s Variants Management feature set allows you to efficiently manage multiple product variants within your product line. It lets you reuse artifacts and processes to minimize rework.
  • Configure codeBeamer freely, allowing you to use any combination of Waterfall/V-model, Agile and Hybrid processes in your development.
