Natick, MA (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
VDC Research (VDC), the leading market intelligence and advisory firm for the connected world, announces that Parasoft’s Process Intelligence Engine (PIE) was selected as the winner of the annual Embeddy Award for Software at the 2014 EE Live! conference and trade show. The Best of Show award was presented to Parasoft on stage preceding the conference’s final-day keynote speech.
The award winner was chosen from among the software innovations exhibited during the event, based on inventiveness, technological significance, and industry applicability. Steve Hoffenberg, VDC Research’s Director of M2M Embedded Software & Tools, commented, “As a suite to analyze data from multiple software development projects and tools, the Process Intelligence Engine performs meta-analysis to produce both technical and business results. With PIE, Parasoft has created a new category of software development tool that could yield widespread benefits.”
“Software engineering professionals are being challenged to do more with less while facing increased time-to-market demands,” remarked Wayne Ariola, Chief Strategy Officer at Parasoft. “To meet these demands and capitalize on competitive advantages, organizations need to shift from the creation of software in team silos into an integrated software supply chain. The Parasoft Process Intelligent Engine facilitates this transition by aggregating and analyzing information throughout the embedded development lifecycle to identify business risks early and automatically.”
VDC created and named the Embeddy to highlight companies announcing important advances in the embedded software and hardware industries. The Embeddy is awarded for the most cutting-edge product or service for embedded software developers and system engineers.
