Software Development in the Age of Hyperconnectivity and Big Data
Assistant Professor Subhajit Datta
Civilization, as we know today, runs largely on software. Software intensive systems underpin almost all aspects of our lives – serving our communication, transportation, healthcare, education, entertainment, and many other needs in myriad ways. The development of software as a large-scale industrial artefact has some distinct characteristics. These are accentuated in the current age of pervasive connectivity between individuals and systems, as well as data generation and preservation at scales never seen before.
We are therefore at a juncture of big challenges and bigger opportunities for large scale software development.
In this podcast, Assistant Professor Subhajit Datta from SMU's School of Information Systems shares his research on software development in this age of hyperconnectivity and big data.
