About the seminar
Companies building software-intensive systems operate in a rapidly changing world. On the one hand, the need to shorten cycle times and be responsive to customer needs has never been stronger. On the other hand, organizations increasingly operate in a complex software ecosystem where orchestration of distributed (open) innovation efforts needs to be a key capability.

The presentation starts by discussing the trends that drive developments in the software industry. Subsequently, it raises three important implications for software engineering, including the role of software architecture, the organization of teams and ways of working, and the activities needed to initiate and evolve a software ecosystem. The talk provides examples from a variety of companies and teams to illustrate the key points.
