It’s Transformation Time for Embedded Development – Part 2

By Bill Graham Every project starts with a vision—a goal for a product that is innovative and competitive. Achieving that vision requires an orchestration of internal and external variables at each phase of development, in a way that maximizes quality, mitigates risk, minimizes complexity, reduces overall cost, and ensures timely completion of the project. The shift left approach can help…
