New approaches to Systems Engineering and Embedded Software Development

IBM experts on embedded systems development lifecycle management solutions discuss new approaches in developing advanced products and systems. Topics include systems engineering, quality and requirements management, and industry-specific compliance.


Addressing the needs of the renewable energy generation industry

Renewable energy generation takes many forms, where commercially viable forms include solar, wind, and arguably, nuclear energy. To achieve best results, deployment planning, plus, careful management of assets, requirements, and data are essential. Safety and security concerns are major components of regulatory compliance, while design standards evolve into a set of best practices addressed by Rational's solution for Energy and Utilities. Irv Badr, speaker.

Enterprise Management and its significance in transformation of the utilities industry

Most utilities are undergoing changes in their business process and enterprise management area, in order to offer fully integrated data and information across customers, municipalities, and, the utilities themselves. An example is the electric industry, where a set of best practices are prompted through a set of standards from IEC, SGIP, and other agencies. IEC CIM is a set of Electrical energy standards based on modeling of the data and information related to the Smart Grid. Irv Badr, speaker.

Overcoming the challenge of power transmission and distribution with Rational software

More and more utilities are recognizing the need for transforming their business processes and technical solutions, such as smart meter data management, simultaneously, in order to achieve their new business goals. Leveraging Rational's integrated solution, utilities can realistically transform their processes and technologies with little disruption, and minimized risk. Irv Badr, speaker.

When agility is required: CLM for software engineering with complex systems

Can successful Agile processes be incrementally adopted in highly regulated, complex systems and software development? Hear how companies are blending agile, iterative and more traditional development approaches. The needs of Telecom, Energy and Utilities, and Electronics companies in rapidly changing industries will be addressed.


Westinghouse meets the nuclear compliance challenges with IBM Rational Solutions

Watch the video When delivering software-intensive systems for the nuclear industry, engineering teams should make use of a secure, requirements driven, software development life cycle, ensuring safety and security compliance, and solid documentation for filing certification. Nuclear plants employ multiple teams working in parallel; through automated collaboration and contract management solutions from Rational, project outcome becomes predictable and leads to successful budgeting, planning and deployment.
