SATURN 2011 Theme Leader to Present SEI Webinar: Emerging Technologies for Software-Reliant Systems

(The archived version of this webinar can now be viewed here.)

On Thursday, February 24 from 1:30 to 2:30 PM EST, Grace Lewis of the SEI will present a free SEI webinar, titled “Emerging Technologies for Software-Reliant Systems.”


Lewis is one of seven theme leaders for SATURN 2011, which will be held on May 16-20 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, California. She recently wrote a blog post about SOA and cloud computing, the theme that she is leading for SATURN 2011. This webinar and others are our way of introducing readers to the themes that will be covered at SATURN 2011. Registration for SATURN is now open.

About the Webinar

Software-reliant systems of systems (SoS) now tend to be highly distributed software systems, formed from constituent software systems that are operated and managed by different organizations. These SoS are moving from a directed management structure (in which constituent systems are integrated and built for a specific purpose) to a virtual one (in which there is no central authority or centrally agreed purpose). This shift is introducing a need for new technologies to deal with the lack of central authority or centrally agreed purpose. This webinar will present general computation trends and a particular set of emerging technologies to support the trends for software-reliant SoS such as cloud computing, green computing, mobile computing, and opportunistic networks.
