VDC Research Webinar Event

VDC recently announced the launch of our Embedded Software Market Intelligence Program: 2009 Service Year. As part of that announcement, we mentioned our upcoming Webinar presentation that provides an update on the market, including an analysis and outlook for 2009.

We hope you can join us for one of the two planned sessions. You can see more details and register at:

VDC Webinar Events - What’s Next: Embedded Software Market Update, Trends and 2009 Outlook December 2nd, 11:00 AM (U.S. Eastern) December 5th, 2:00 PM (U.S. Eastern). Following the presentation, we’ll also have a Q&A session so we can respond to your specific areas of interest.

Our speakers include Stephen Balacco, Director of our Embedded Software and Tools Practice, and Chris Rezendes, EVP Research Operations, and the following questions will be discussed:

  • How is the current global economic downturn impacting near-term prospects for suppliers of embedded software platforms, development tools, and services?
  • What are the dynamics of the global market for embedded software/system engineering labor? How is this market evolving?
  • How is the growing focus/reliance on software in embedded systems impacting the need for software/system lifecycle management tools and practices?
  • What is the impact of open source solutions/communities on the embedded systems market?

We look forward to seeing you at one of these sessions.
