Software increasingly defines the way we live our lives and conduct business. Innovations in software technology enable today’s systems to deliver rich functionality, enhance productivity, spur innovation, and provide competitive advantage. However, with opportunity comes risk: the rapid evolution of software-reliant systems creates risks to society along with unprecedented technical and management challenges. With the increasing reliance on and penetration of software into our lives and society, the need for organizations to predictably develop, acquire, and sustain high-quality software systems has never been greater.
