Software-reliant systems of systems (SoS) now tend to be highly distributed software systems, formed from constituent software systems that are operated and managed by different organizations. These SoS are moving from a directed management structure (in which constituent systems are integrated and built for a specific purpose) to a virtual one (in which there is no central authority or centrally agreed purpose). This shift is introducing a need for new technologies to deal with the lack of central authority or centrally agreed purpose. This webinar will present general computation trends and a particular set of emerging technologies to support the trends for software-reliant SoS such as cloud computing, green computing, mobile computing, and opportunistic networks.
About the Speaker
Grace Lewis is a senior member of the SEI technical staff within the Systems of Systems Practice (SoSP) Initiative in the Research, Technology, and Systems Solutions (RTSS) Program. Her current interests and projects are in service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, context-aware applications, and technologies for systems interoperability. Her latest publications include multiple reports and articles on these subjects and a book in the SEI Software Engineering Series to be published later in 2011. She is also a member of the technical faculty for the Master in Software Engineering Program at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Lewis holds a bachelor's degree in systems engineering and an Executive MBA from Icesi University in Cali, Colombia; and a master's degree in software engineering from CMU.
