No matter if you have a shorter or longer time horizon, your basic concerns are likely the same because longevity is important for all types of software development and this concern is central to SDC’s design.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Genuitec, LLC, a leader in software development solutions and founding member of the Eclipse Foundation along with IBM, is proud to announce software tooling longevity support as part of Secure Delivery Center (SDC). Customers are now able to ensure access to development tool stacks, configuration of those tool stacks, and the accompanied sources customers used during the original development activities as part of SDC’s snapshot archival and reproduction services.
“Our embedded customers must support the software they write today for 5 to 25 years or more into the future,” said Tim Webb, product manager and architect of SDC at Genuitec. “No matter if you have a shorter or longer time horizon, your basic concerns are likely the same because longevity is important for all types of software development and this concern is central to SDC’s design.”
Longevity requires you to have access to the environment used to initially develop the software because the inability to reproduce the exact known-good environment means that any maintenance work has a higher risk of introducing even more problems. Genuitec’s SDC works to ensure that customers who have an embedded system with a fault, are able to locate a solution in an exceedingly reliable manner.
By providing development stack archival, SDC is able to ensure reproducibility of build artifacts when later working on the embedded software; source and associated configuration archive are available as part of the stack archival which is critical to reconstitute the full environment used to develop software. SDC also provides reproduction services allowing for easy access to archived builds, helping to facilitate and ensure compliance as the longevity tooling becomes a key part of the business workflow.
