Martin Bakal on Six Ways to Accelerate Android Mobile Application Development

Abstract: More software is embedded into both consumer and industrial electronics, the electronics industry as a whole is being challenged with complexity and enhancing its software development process. Software has become the “Invisible Thread” of today’s innovation. This talk will discuss the trends in the electronics industry as well how to respond to them with a special focus on developing android applications for smartphones, tablets, TVs and other devices. The Android Operating System is rapidly gaining market share for applications on a variety of devices such as smartphones, tablets and TVs. Devices manufacturers and application providers alike are competing to introduce high quality, innovative products on shorter time scales. To accelerate Android mobile application development for software and systems development the key is to understand customer needs by using product portfolio management, manage the complexity of product development using model driven development, reduce effort through cross‐device mobile web application development, enhance collaboration and communication across the development lifecycle, deliver reuse across an entire product line portfolio, and drive application data security through static and dynamic analysis.
