Internet of Things: Expanding into Medical Device Digital Enterprise

What is the definition of the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Gartner defines IoT as the following: “The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with the internal states or the external environment.”

If a medical device firm is implementing an IoT device, implied in the definition is a set of new product features related to the company ideation, realization and utilization systems. We will begin with a delineation some of the new capabilities and potential features IoT promises to bring to our devices.

This list will be fairly short to illustrate the difficulty in implementing this kind of technology, and the need for a digital model to support the effort not only in creation of the product, but just as critical, in management of the device after deployment.

Join us: ‘Embedded Software Like Never Before’ Live Webinar

Software is leading a digitization revolution that is changing how modern products are designed, manufactured, and supported once released to the market. Further muddying the waters, network connectivity, the so-called Internet of Things (IoT), is disrupting traditional product development with more and more connected “Things” joining the fray.

Your development teams must adapt to accelerating product lifecycle times, more and more complexities, and growing regulatory compliance and standards conformance, with very little room for error during development – as well as in post-release scenarios. Increasing product demand for network make it difficult to identify and mitigate security vulnerabilities, failure scenarios, and other problems within a product’s embedded software. (more…)

Current Tech Trends: Connected Products Changing Industrial Landscape

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings connectivity to a wide range of new products, as software disrupts our personal and professional lives.

Good software quality is increasingly important, and has become a critical component for IoT-based solutions. Much of the attention surrounds consumer-based IoT products, but there are growing trends spurring innovation in Industry 4.0 (I4.0) products. As these products get smarter, product development complexity is increasing at a dizzying pace.

Organizations must show appreciation for end-to-end test management in their hunt to deliver new value-added products and features. Software development cycles are faster – with more frantic projects – and your organization must be ready to support short and rapid development sprints. (more…)

Embedded Computing Creating New Business Opportunities

Embedded software is becoming even more important in product development, leading innovation in connected and engineered products.

Although embedded software presents new business opportunities, there are also development and security complexities that must be addressed. More functionality is needed to support new and differentiated products, with demands on price, performance, size, and time to market are accurately discussed.

Current Tech Trends: I4.0 Continues Driving Development

Software is eating the world!” is a phrase that we’ve used in the past, and the technology continues to be extremely disruptive. As organizations try to sort out the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), sometimes referred to as Industrie 4.0 (I4.0), decision makers shouldn’t be too hasty in deployment plans.

Trying to figure out how to deal with punctuated innovation times, shrinking product lifecycles, and growing complexities is difficult. Customers must find methods to automate systems engineering while developing quality embedded software when consumers expect new and differentiated products. (more…)

Software Eating The World: Is Your Organization Ready?

During Polarion Kick Off 2016, there were numerous references to the realization that “software is eating the world.” It’s true that the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 (I4.0) are disruptive, as customers look for ways to safely adopt IoT.

The application lifecycle management (ALM) [Polarion ALM] and product lifecycle management (PLM) processes are no longer siloed away from one another, with ALM-PLM helping bridge the gap for managing physical components – and the software needed to help create and deliver products.
